Hi Kayce: Don't let the move bother you. As long as you let your bird out, if he's use to it he'll travel well sitting on your shoulder, but be sure to pack the travel cage so when he gets tired put him to bed.  But as stated before if you really are worried about no room, or time for your bird find a suitable owner. Don't just give him away to anyone. The darling little bird I have I adopted from a sanctuary. Although treated well there Kiwi was, reported to me that she was passed to four different homes, and someone's Macaw bit 2 of her toes off. She's very sweet. And she has arrived at her last home. We use to own a Gray Cockateil, we had him for seven years and in a freak accident when he played a game got outside and flew away. Kiwi would rather sit in one place, and be near somebody.
So make sure people who want to adopt your bird have good sound refrences. Other than that keep your wonderful pet.
