    Hello there, bathe them in warm soapy water, make sure you don't get soap in her eyes. Make sure there's no little bugs on your birds. Maybe use dog flea shampoo if necessary. I just use regular dog shampoo. Rinse, towel dry til they're not dripping anymore then either blow dry or if it's warm enough let them air dry. Trim nails, use a little Vet RX or olive oil on their comb. That's it in a nutshell...

    Just make sure they are fed and watered well before you leave, then when you get to your destination give them food and water. Should be ok.
