About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: Birds

Feathered Friends specialises in parrot and budgie holiday boarding. We offer a totally different service to most other establishments - it is very much a home-from-home service and we want your bird to feel part of our family while they are visiting. We have our own parrots - three African Greys called Saphie, Lola and Milo, who really talk well, and a Senegal called Chica.

Your bird will be given what they normally eat at home (provided by yourself) plus a mixture of fresh fruit and anything else that they would like to eat.

Accommodation:

Your bird will share our home and be very warm and comfortable. We are very keen to create a cosy home environment for them.

Exercise:

If you would like us to let your bird out for exercise, we are more than happy to do so (which most other holiday homes wouldn't be able to do). We are keen for your bird to have as little stress as possible and for them to feel comfortable with their new surroundings.

Health & Hygiene:

We have a local avian vet nearby should it be needed.

If I need to take your bird to the vet in your absence, this bill must be settled when your bird is collected.

We left our cockatiel Sparky with Donna and was very happy with the way he was looked after. He seemed very happy when we picked him up and this was the first time we had left him. I can honesty say I would definately go back to Donna and would fully recommend. Very happy

Hello...My name is Buddy (or Bubba!) and I've just spent the best 9 days of my feathered life with Donna and her family whilst my Mum and Dad went on holiday. Donna encouraged me to be myself, joined me all the time in my chorus of "Old MacDonald" and "Baa Baa Black sheep" nursery rhymes, amongst the "hello's" and "can I have a tickle?". I learnt a few things too from the other feathered friends I made during my stay. It was my 2nd visit and I knew where I was straight away and I felt at home from day 1. Donna is a lovely lovely lady (2nd in line to my Mum of course), and she interacted with me constantly so that I didn't feel lonely and attended to my every need. It was a fabulous environment and one that I would recommend. I had my very own holiday cage too. I hope I can go back for another holiday soon.

My 24-year-old African Grey had never boarded with a stranger, and I was very anxious about her. However when I got to Feathered Friends, and saw that she was going to be surrounded by Donna's three African Greys I was much reassured. (I do not think my Sam has even seen another African Grey since she was a chick!)I was also pleased to see that all the parrot's cages were in the centre of the household, and thus all the parrots have the stimulation and company of being amidst the family as well. Upon my return after a fortnight Sam looked very content and relaxed, and she stayed that way during our journey home, and when I moved her from her traveling cage to her big cage. Donna told me she had been opening Sam's cage to put her food in the bowl, after Sam had taken some from Donna's hand. I was truly gob-smacked; Donna is only the second person to be able to enter her cage without being bitten. I inherited Sam some 18months ago, and it took me months before I could risk putting my hand into her cage, yet Donna did it in days! I think she has a natural affinity with parrots. I am tempted to call her "Donna Doolittle"!! I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Feathered Friends, and I am so pleased to know that when she has to be boarded in future that I know somewhere she will be extremely well cared for.

Our Budgies Robbie and Lionel thoroughly enjoyed their stay with Donna for the two months we were away. We cannot recommend Feathered Friends enough as a safe, caring home from home environment for birds and we would definitely use them again.

When a friend of ours let us down and was not able to look after our precious bird when we were away, we are so glad to have discovered Donna and her family of "Feathered Friends" who have taken great care of our Parrot (Rosie) as if she was one if their own. Regular communication and updates from Donna has made the separation from our little bird much easier... She has even sent us a photo too! Its very comforting for us to know that when we go away in the future that we don't have to rely on friends and family anymore! We will definately use Feathered Friends again and have already made two further bookings! Thanks Donna and Family! Jason.

Absolutely fantastic!! By the looks of it Ringo (our 16 week old budgie) was very well looked after and seemed well fed and content when we picked him up. I cannot recommend Donna and her family enough.. It is very much and home from home service. The care and attention they give to the pets they look after, is second to none! Thank you very much .. Ringo will be coming again soon

5 From Parm on

Thanks Donna for looking after Skye and Fern so well, they loved it so much they want to come back ! I'm booking again for Xmas - hope you've got space for them.
