We got our latest addition only a week ago, a two month old quaker and have him all set up and feeling comfortable at home already. He has his own spacious cage with lots of toys and perches and he seems to have blended into our lives much easier than our previous quaker. We will be going away tomorrow for two days and can't decide if it would be better to take him with us or leave him at home. We will be leaving around 11am tomorrow (Sunday) so I will still be able to spend three hours in the morning with him and we will be back on Tuesday at around lunch time or early afternoon.
Basically if left at home, he would be alone for half a day Sunday, full day Monday, and half a day Tuesday. No one would be able to come into our house so we'd have to leave him lots of food and multiple water dishes just to be safe. If we would take him with us, he would be in the car with us driving one way about 2 hours, be in a small cage with one perch and 1-2 toys for two days, but on the bright side we'd be able to hang out with him a few hours a day during our trip and give him some out of cage time daily.
I just can't decide if taking him with us would put more stress on him than leaving him in peace for two days where he seemingly feels comfortable. Given that he's still a young quaker and still getting used being home with us, do you guys think we should pack him up and take him with us or leave him home for two days. We want to make our decision solely on the best interest for the bird's well being.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
