What does that mean??

I guess you have to watch the bird for a while to make sure, but I do have one old hen, she's 3 years old and she throws up every time I take her to shipping. She actually does get car sick. First time I got to shipping and saw upchucked seeds in the basket, I FREAKED OUT!!! But I eventually caught her doing it and would put her in a basket by herself and let her ride in the back seat instead of the truck bed. Sure enough....it WAS her but nothing was ever wrong.

I got a new bird the day before yesterday and he threw up his seeds on the way home too.

Got home and he has been completely fine, eating drinking pooping, everything normal. I think they sometimes just throw up when they freak out because we had just start driving when it happened.

GAS AND carbon dioxide Fumes

Pigeons can be made sick by the Carbon Dioxide fumes, also birds do get stress out when beening hauled to shows ectra. When you transported these birds I would hope that you did not have them in the trunk of your car. Even when they are in the back seat they can still pick up the scent of gas fumes these gas fumes can make them sick and even kill them. THINK ABOUT IT GEORGE;)

I think there are some birds who just get car sick. I've had a couple who upchuck their seeds, even on a short drive while others with them were fine.
As far as I know there were no fumes that could affect them, but it is certainly something to be aware of. I'd never put birds in the trunk of the car.

During the first IRAQ WAR our troops were supplied with pigeons. These birds were to be used to detect WAR GAS that the IRAQ'S were known to have. Birds are are very susceptible to gas fumes. Coal miner use canaries to detect coal gas in coal mines as they the birds, would be over come by the gas before man,and this gave the miners time to get out of the mine before the men became over come by the gas fumes.The fumes of household cleaners have also been known to make birds ill.
