Hi there,

What requirements exist to take my bird with me to Germany? I would also like to know what kind of carrier I need for the bird.


Hi Doreen,

We're happy to share a few tips for shipping birds with you! It's a more difficult endeavor than moving dogs or cats, but we've helped many people do it safely. First, take a look at our guide for moving exotic pets, and check out the information we have about bird travel crates.

We've covered how to ship a bird on our blog, as well. As you can see, it's a manageable but not exactly easy task, so if you have any more questions you can contact us at your convenience.

Good luck with everything, Doreen!
