    Good afternoon

    I wondered what your thoughts were.  We recovered our African Grey Oliver on Sunday 27th July just passed after being missing for a week.  We are planning on going camping this Saturday for a week.  We have always taken Oliver with us in the past.  The question is this...

    Is it too soon to take him on holiday? 

    I think he's quite perky today and he is used to camping and his holiday cage, travelling in the car etc, this is not new to him.  Your thoughts are very welcome

    Assuming that he's fit, healthy and absolutely back to his normal self, I don't see why not. He's been before, he will have everybody's attention, go for it!
    Enjoy.

    I agree. Just make sure he can't escape again It'll be better than you worrying about him with someone else.
