Birds are one of the most affectionate pets to have. If you make sure to give them the proper care and attention then they will return to you your tender loving care with their own brand of loving companionship for years to come.
All birds have their own personality so caring for them will have to be a unique approach. Generally, no matter what type of bird you choose to own, your pet will need housing, proper diet, grooming and health treatment to ensure that they live a happy and long life.
The bird cage is the most common type of housing chosen for pet birds, unless you want to put your pet in a breeding aviary. Your pet’s bird cage will need to have large enough space so he can move around freely, even fly a bit from one end to the other end of the cage. A bird kept in a cage that’s too small for him may tend to develop behavioral and mood problems.
Bird foods will have to be specific to the type of breed you own. What works for parakeets, for instance, may not be good for cockatiels. So be sure to buy bird-specific ready-made bird food formulas at your pet stores to take care of his special dietary needs or check with the vet before stocking up.
Most birds have an intelligent mind. So bird toys are a must for mental stimulation and to keep him entertained. If birds are not kept amused and contented, they may succumb to loneliness and depression and fall sick.
Some plants, household products, food items and certain home conditions may pose dangers to the safety and health of your bird pet. Be sure you know about these environmental hazards before bringing a pet bird home.
