What does a bird sitting service include?

Bird sitting services usually cover feeding, cage cleaning, plus treats and playtime for your feathered friend. This involves a Tasker going to your house on a regular basis (e.g. daily or twice a day) to care for your bird. What makes it better than bringing your pet to a boarding facility is that your bird gets to stay in your own home. Plus, your Tasker will be dedicated to their care during their stay. 


Though the details may vary depending on your pet’s own needs and the Tasker you hire, here’s what you can expect when you book a bird sitting service through Airtasker:



The Tasker stops by your house and refills your bird’s supply of food and water. To make sure that what’s left in their dish isn’t just hulls, you should have the container emptied, cleaned, and refilled every time your bird sitter visits. Also, it’s best that you set up your pet’s cage in a way that makes it easy for your pet sitter to feed them without provoking your pet or getting injured. Some birds can be quite territorial, so it’s best you plan the logistics carefully.


Cage cleaning

Some Taskers may offer cage cleaning services as well. Your bird sitter swaps out the paper lining their cage and makes sure that your birds don’t put their waste in their food and water bowls. If you are away from home for a week or longer, your Tasker may also need to do a thorough cleaning of the cage bars and perches. Demonstrate how to safely transfer your bird to another location while the cage is being cleaned, and make sure your bird will follow your Tasker’s commands for leaving and going back inside the cage. 


Treats and playtime

Your pet will also need their regular exercise and roaming time while you’re out. Brief your Tasker about how to get them out and back inside the cage, and let them know how long you’d like your bird to fly around the house. If your bird knows any tricks or games such as foraging for treats, your Tasker may like doing these with your pet. Just make sure that your Tasker can keep your pet safe while in flight - check for open or broken doors and windows, or any clutter that your bird may pick up and play with.

Birds boarding-2 budgies


Williams Landing VIC, Australia

11th Sep 2023

I’ve got 2 small budgies and they need care while we are going away for 30 days. I’ll hand them in a medium size cage with lots of their favourite toys to keep them busy, and all the food will be supplied by me for the entire duration including their treats. They are shy birds and prefer to be in the cage all the time even if you leave the door open. So I would prefer it to keep it close for the safety. Water needs to be changed daily and food needs to be changed after every 3 days. - Due date: Needs to be done on Sunday, 24 September 2023
