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 Outstanding service by Ken February 4, 2024
Reviewer: Ash Kumar from bloomingdale, IL United States  
Parrot stars is a clean safe trustworthy place . As I was going out of town and was worried as to whom I should leave my precious birds. In parrot stars Alexis is great to communicate she listen to all the needs for my birds than I came across Ken. Ken did a phenomenal job taking care of my three birds. ken is responsible, incredibly accommodating and knows the birds! He was very attentive to their needs. He knew exactly what they liked and what they didn't like. Ken was aware that I am very attached to my birds that he would do daily videos for me so I can see them. Even on his days off he went in to make sure they were doing okay. I appreciated all the updates and morning texts, it really made me at ease knowing my babies was doing so well Iappreciate Ken for his commitment to his job you can truly see he is passionate for what he does. If you're looking for a trustworthy and fantastic boarding place for your birds this is the place.

5 of 5 Boarding review February 4, 2024
Reviewer: Bret swift from Cedar Rapids, IA  
I boarded my umbrella cockatoo with parrots stars and I couldn’t be more happy with how they handled him! He is four years old and It was the first time I’ve been away from him in those four years. Ken and everyone at the store was great in handling him and taking excellent care of him and giving him the attention he needs. It’s a hard thing to leave your baby with someone else but it’s worry free with the parrot stars staff! He had daily interactions and lots of love from everyone. I would absolutely board him there again next time I have to be out of town!

5 of 5 Boarding February 4, 2024
Reviewer: Amber Lewis from Round Lake, IL  
I have boarded my cockatiel here twice and will continue to for future trips. I appreciate how cautious they are with the birds entering the store and try to make them as comfortable as possible.

5 of 5 Parrot Boarding February 4, 2024
Reviewer: Liz Hessevick from Mundelein  
Parrot Stars is the perfect place to board your parrot!  In the past, we have always boarded our 11 year old Cockatiel Sweetie with the family that we brought him home from in our neighborhood.  They are not able to board him currently and I was very nervous about finding a new location to bring him to.  Parrot Stars has been a perfect solution for us!  They take amazing care of the parrots! The staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and caring!  Their boarding practices ensure that the parrots are well taken care of and healthy.  Sweetie always comes home a very happy bird!
