US27inKS Our long range plans are: get the birds a new home, then go sailing. One of our birds gets horrible motion sickness anyway. Who woulda thought?

wind_magic Okay, so no birds seems like the consensus. It sounds like you shouldn't leave port with any bird you don't plan to eat before you arrive at your next destination.

Travelling with Birds

Checkout other forums like BirdBoard.Com - Parrot Message Board & Pet Bird Owner Forums for info on traveling with birds. Lots of people do it. But, it can be a pain.

Good luck.

sailingdog Given the Avian Flu scare, I would imagine that laws regarding pet birds are rather draconian in many places.

Cruising with Birds

Does anyone know what restrictions there are for birds in most countries ? Also, do birds do well on boats ? I'm considering a pair of pet finches, but I don't want to get a pet that is going to cause troubles in a foreign country.
