Good morning Everyone!

I thought crossed my mind while I was lying in bed last night.

Can Cockatiels be left alone for any period of time? In the summer (especially) we tend to go to our cottage for the weekend quite often. Can they be left alone for a weekend. I would like to take them with me once in a while, but I may not be able all the time.

Thanks guys
Duckie:D

I would say no, they could get themselves in to trouble. I would take them with you all the time and if you can't I would hire a pet sitter or have a friend care for them.

It's better if you can take them or arrange for them to stay with a friend. But you could supply them with lots of seed and water and leave them for an overnight if you absolutely have to. :) Personally i would never do it, because so much could happen and with no one around something that would usually be minor (toe getting caught on a toy) could turn out disastrous. :eek:

I could never do it either. I had to leave for two days once and took all the birds to my parents. They really wouldn't like it and you never know what mischeif they could get themselves in.

i would definitely say no. if it was for just one night and someone was still at home then yes. however, in a situation like this, dont take chances

I would say no as well, food and water needs to be changed regularly, if you can't take them with you I would get someone to come in and watch them.

Thanks

Thank you all,

This question just hit me, and I wanted to make sure, before I did anything irresponsible :(

Thank you all for your input!

Duckie :love:
