Importing a Parrot
I live in Tonga (South Pacific) and I am thinking of getting a pet parrot. I have done some research and have found the legal requirements and the Pet Transport companies that do this, but I am worried about the stress a 4 hr flight to transport a bird from NZ would cause. Is it safe ship birds? Are there any "tricks" to make the ordeal any easier? I love animals, and the last thing I want to do is harm, or God forbid kill a bird.
PS as for vets we do not have bird vet on our island, but vets do come and visit regularly.
