Can I leave my conure parrot in its cage for a week

Hi I am going on vacation soon and I am not able to take my parrot. My grandma is gonna be the one caring for him but she is only gonna change his food and water. My parrot will be in his cage for a week and is used to being out of his cage. Will it be fine if he is in his cage for that period of time ?



Yes, this is fine and it is actually what is recommended when a parrot is being cared for by someone who isn’t used to handling him. If you boarded him somewhere, he would not be taken out of the cage for his own safety. He will be fine – make sure he has some toys to keep him busy.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
