If you choose the option for home delivery, you will have to keep track of your bird and be at home at the provided estimated time of arrival at your home address. So you can sign delivery papers of your bird as you take your bird indoors to your family.

Safe and Comfortable Shipping process

Cockatoos aren’t vases or art supplies, so when you hear that he or she can be shipped to you, your first reaction is probably shock. Before you panic, get that picture of cardboard boxes and foam peanuts out of your mind! Shipping birds are usually quite safe and any airlines or trucking companies that take live animals have procedures in place to be sure they arrive in good health.

Airlines will either ship birds in the cargo compartment which sounds a bit callous and scary, but is actually fairly safe and comfortable for the birds, especially if there is no need for a layover or cargo transfer or the bird to be stowed under the passenger’s seat in lieu of carry on luggage. This is probably the safest mode of air travel.

We always give all our birds a vaccine prior to shipping to avoid the chances of other pets infecting them.
