Boarding


 
Parrot Stars offers a safe, clean and professional boarding service for companion parrots. Our boarding room is attended to by our highly trained Parrot Stars’ staff. The general public does not have access to the boarding room to ensure the safety of the birds.

Daily Routine:

  • All water dishes are washed, disinfected and replenished daily.
  • Dry food is offered at the instruction of the customer, we are happy to follow any feeding guidelines that are provided.
  • We always ensure that the dry food is offered on time and accurately.
  • Fresh food (chopped vegetables and fruit mixed with a soak and sprout blend) is offered daily at the approval of the customer. The customer is welcome to provide their own fresh food as well. All fresh food is refrigerated. Fresh dishes are washed and disinfected, and removed mid-day to prevent spoilage.
  • All cages are cleaned daily.

Prepare For Boarding:

  • Bring a minimum of 2 of your parrot's toys.
  • Provide a dry diet & feeding instructions.

ALL parrots must test negative for the following diseases in order to be boarded at Parrot Stars:
  • Chlamydia psitacia
  • Avian Polyoma Virus
  • Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease
  • Avian Borna Virus
More Disease Testing can be done by most certified Avian Vets. Parrot Stars’ offers disease testing (click here to purchase). We collect a small sample of blood from a minor toenail clip. We also collect a sample of feces on a cotton swab. We need at least two weeks to receive the results. Testing results are valid for the entire year, unless any additional, untested parrots, have been added to the household after the tests.

ALL parrots must be brought in an enclosed pet carrier. The carrier must be clearly labeled with both the customer’s last name & the name of the parrot.

The customer must provide all toys, Parrot Stars ONLY provides the cage & perching. Toys can be brought with the parrot in a bag clearly labeled with the customer's last name and the name of the parrot. The customer is also welcome to purchase toys at Parrot Stars at the time of drop off. We require that each parrot MUST have a minimum of two toys at the time of drop off.

We recommend the customer provides both the dry diet & feeding instructions for each parrot. We will happily feed our own, size appropriate dry food, only at the approval of the customer. Any food can be brought with the parrot in a bag clearly labeled with the customer's last name and the name of the parrot.

5 of 5 Boarding - Max & Dewey September 10, 2022
Reviewer: Laurie Korte from Kildeer, IL United States  
Boarding at Parrotstars is a friendly experience for Max & Dewey. Their special needs are met so they can always be together, even in separate cages. They get treats and scritches, chatter with friends, and staff, maybe learn a new whistle or sound to share when they come back home. Thank you each and every time. ~Laurie

5 of 5 Boarding September 1, 2022
Reviewer: Chris Ceaya from Des Plaines IL  
I have 2 quaker parrots which were purchased at Parrot Stars.  I have boarded them there 8 or 10 times over the last several years for anywhere from 1 to 10 days each time.  Every time my birds come home clean, happy and healthy.  Every staff person who has cared for them while boarded has shown caring and competent behavior.  The addition of Ken who now manages the boarding program has also been great.  The staf all gets to know the birds well, and truly exhibit such caring behavior toward my birds.  I'm sure that must be true for all boarders.  I truly appreciate all the staff for their knowledge, caring and competence.  Additionally, the management staff have always been so helpful and knowledgeable.

We only trust Parrot Stars and their wonderful staff with our flock. We’ve boarded our birds several times with these guys and have always had an exceptional experience. It’s great knowing our birds are in such good hands while we’re out of town

5 of 5 Boarding August 28, 2022
Reviewer: Nazariy Bench from Franklin park, IL United States  
Boarding is top notch, I wouldnt go anywhere else for boarding other than ParrotStars. In addition to the parrot being exposed to other parrots during boarding, they get out time, fresh food and water everyday, and god forbid, an emergency, the staff will take care of the bird and take it to the nearest vet. Im confident every time I board I will get my parrot back happy and healthy, the only one that was sad was me missing the parrot lol.  Go to ParrotStars

Reviewer: Nancy Rinaldi from Ottawa  
I just recently boarded my Green-Cheek Conure & couldn’t be happier.  Ken, one of the caregivers, was so helpful when I was checking out. He helped me pick out some products. I could tell Sushi really liked him & that she was well taken care of. Also, Alexa, who runs the facility is very knowledgeable & truly cares about
