I'm glad you asked about this. I'm birdsitting two parakeets for the next two weeks, and I've been wondering what to do. I picked them up about three hours ago, and took them to my in-laws' house (close by, so I can go over there twice a day for feedings, etc.), because I don't know if I can trust JC not to open the cage or sit on it and give the birds a heart attack. The only other bird we "sit" for is a cockatoo, and he can stand his own against JC, with or without a cage. He's even learned to say, "No, Jamie, no!", and "You're a bad boy!" when JC starts to stalk him. My husband thinks I should keep them in the spare bedroom here (they make a real mess), but I'm not sure if I should risk it. Anybody have any ideas?
