The Featherbed Resort for Birds
Offering Premier PARROT and Bird Boarding.
The Perfect Getaway... for your bird!
Framingham, mA 617-969-5199
At Featherbed Resort for Birds we exclusively specialize in boarding and caring for birds and parrots. You are hiring a professional who knows the unique physical and emotional needs of your companion. We've been offering boarding for birds for the last 20 years in our private home for owners who want to travel knowing their bird is also having a safe, fun vacation. Because our Bird Suite is open to our living room, your pet is in the middle of the action and treated as part of the family. Lots of out-of-cage time, interaction, and birdie head scratches are provided. We ensure all guests get the love and attention they deserve.
Because parrots are flocking creatures by nature, they love the company of other birds, even if they don’t have that company at home. You can rest assured that when your bird stays at Featherbed Resort for Birds they receive love and care in a fun, safe, supervised environment. Boarders are surrounded by other feathered friends, our own resident parrot Mango, and have lots of human interaction. Birds experience less separation anxiety when surrounded by other birds allowing you to return to a happy pet.
We offer parrot and bird boarding, and specialize exclusively in caring for avian companions. We only board birds and have no other pets in the household. Birds are boarded in our living area, and right in the middle of action. They feel right at home and get lots of human interaction. We board birds from all over New England including Boston, Greater Boston, Metro West, Cape Cod, Western Mass, Central Mass, and Worcester. Birdies visit us from Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Connecticut.
Does your bird suffer from being a seed junkie? We specialize in working with your bird to kick the seed diet in favor of healthy pellets. We employ a variety of methods and will find the right one for your companion. Many area veterinarians refer their challenging cases to us for conversion to pellets. It’s a difficult process for owners to manage, but we are here to help. We’d love to hear about your bird’s dietary needs, and set up a stress-free plan to get them on the road to a pelleted diet.
ACCOMOdations & rates
We have beautiful, clean cages ready for your bird's stay with us. There are two Suites in which your bird may stay: The Main Suite is a bright and cheerful room which opens up to our living room and houses the most birds of our two options. The Canopy is an adjoining Suite that was designed with a more intimate feel for your parrot. It houses a smaller number of parrots. Both Suites offer large windows, plenty of sun, and feathered friends with whom to enjoy "flocking behavior". There is plenty of room for your bird to enjoy out-of-cage time (supervised of course!)

Frequently Asked Questions
What information do I need when I call or email? - Just let us know the approximate dates of boarding and your type of bird. We'll go from there together.
Can you provide references? - Yes, Yes, and Yes! We encourage you to view our great reviews on Yelp! We pride ourselves on our happy customers, both human and birdie. The humans happily provide references.
Do I need to bring my bird's cage? - Not unless you prefer too. We provide new, clean wonderful cages for bird to enjoy. Please do bring favorite toys and anything else you think your bird will enjoy during his or her stay. If you have a smaller bird and would like to bring their cage, that is welcome.
What if my bird gets sick while I am away? - We have alliances with all local Avian Veterinarians, as well as Tufts Veterinary Hospital and Angell Memorial Animal Hospital. We will first contact your bird's own Vet. If he or she is not available, your pet will be taken to Angell or Tufts Veterinary Hospital. You will be notified right away, but in an emergency your bird's health is our primary concern. A trip to the Vet might occur before we can reach you. You will be responsible for any charges incurred for your bird's veterinarian care.
Why is there a health certificate requirement? - Because some avian illness can spread for bird to bird and also to humans, we need to protect the health of all the birdies and humans who visit and stay with us.
I'm concerned my parrot has behavioral issues. Can you help? - Our extensive experience with parrots allows us to offer tips and guidance on behavioral issues. We also offer for-fee behavioral consults is some instances. Please let us know your concerns and we'll help out.
What other paperwork is required? In addition to the health certificate, please fill out our Birdie Bio. This will help us get to know your bird better so he or she will have a happy, comfortable, fun stay. A boarding agreement will also need to be signed.
What should I bring for my bird's stay?
Favorite Toys - as many as possible!
Your bird's pelleted diet or seed mix. - We will supplement it with freshly prepared organic fruits, vegetables, and warm meals.
Everything sounds great, but can we come visit you before we board? Absolutely! We welcome owners to visit with or without their birds. Please note visits are by appointment only.
