No way I can take my toucan with me, as I wouldn't be able to fit his cage in the truck. Any of you have a pet bird with you? (Small)

Only the cartoon birdies that circle my head when I hit it on the crane hook.

If your toucan can stay on a perch, would you really need a cage?

Trust me, I don't want the truck to get messy! A toucan eat fresh fruits every single day, which also might be a problem with limited space to keep food refrigerated. And when a toucan eat, they squish the fruits in their beak, making juice splash all over. No.......

I do have a Lady Gouldian finch and another little finch in their small cage. It's nice to hear them sing. But I'm concerned with temperature in the cab....

I find it risky to converse about birds of any age on this forum ... ... but do you have to keep them in a cage? If you're worried can't you just chain them by the ankle to your bunk, leave them a small stack of magazines to share and a warm bath robe for each? Cages seem so inhumane smiley-shocked001.gif

I'm always confusing or enraging people in this forum, it's a surprise to me. Here's a rule of thumb: assume I'm joking & read it again, or just pass over it entirely.

I would be worried about drafts during the winter, but other than that, why not? Also, toucan pics please. Thanks :D

Read bird as the slang term for a woman and it will make sense. Lol
