So My boyfriend and I are moving to our new house on Monday, and we are a little concerned about the best method to transport Hobbs. Its about a 20min drive to the new place from the apartment, and we are transporting all of our belongings and then making a special trip with just her in the car.
Ususally with my lovebird I would just put him in his carrier, but Hobbs is still extremely hand shy. She's made awesome improvements considering she has only been with us since last Sunday (she'll now pick individual seeds off our finger tips if we put our fingers through the cage bars) but if we put our hands in the cage she'll still move to the opposite end of the cage.
I was thinking of just leaving her in her cage and covering it partially with a towel, as I don't want to stress her out by chasing her around the cage trying to catch and then putting her in a carrier. But then if I leave her in the cage she might not have the best balance because of her only having the one leg.
I'm not sure of what we should do... I know it wasn't the best idea to get her when we were in the middle of a move, but the conditions she was living in were pretty dismal to leave her at petcetera for another week
Does anyone have any suggestions?
