How often do you take a look in the mirror? Well, you don‘t need to answer, I just wanted to lead over to the fact that birds actually are similar. Birds love to look into a mirror and play with their reflection.
For birds though it‘s not about controlling their looks, it is about play and fun. For many pet birds such as Parakeets and Cockatiels that are social birds a mirror may take the place of a missing bird friend.
Birds belong to the most beloved pets. They‘re intelligent and talkative and they love being around us. To keep your bird happy and healthy you need to provide the necessary nutrition and entertainment.
This is the reason why your bird would want to have a Cuttlebone. It is nutrition and entertainment at the same time!
What exactly is a Cuttlebone, where does it come from and what are its advantages for your birds?
When I worked back in Switzerland for a veterinarian who was a bird expert I saw a lot of birds arriving at the vet’s office showing signs of lack of vitamins. I can’t even emphasize enough how important it is for your bird, your parrots, finches, parakeets and whatever bird you have, to be provided with the necessary vitamins.
There are strong signs that your bird might show that indicate a lack of vitamins. Let’s take a closer look at those signs and at what you need to know about the available multi-vitamin products.
There’s no question about rabbits being perfect as pets. They are cute, as young and older – and they have a friendly and very extroverted, often very expressive personality that goes well with being a pet. All these points seem to make it easy to get a bunny as pet.
But a rabbit is an animal with needs and requirements that need to be fulfilled.
Birds love to bathe. You can watch it if you place a bird bath into your backyard and observe all the birds using it frantically – as we saw it in our backyard. Even dozens of pheasants visited our bird bath daily and scrambled to take a bath at the same time. Pure fun!
Well, your little pet bird is the same. Since your bird cannot clean himself in rain, a puddle or stream or just hop through wet grass you need to provide an appropriate bird bath.
Birds of all sizes need entertainment, fun, play to relieve cage stress and boredom. Providing perches for your pet bird is an important service you can give to your beloved bird.
Perches come in all kind of forms and materials which is great because you can offer your bird different styles or perches in order to find out which one he likes the best.
