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.
Just as we love our homes our pet birds love their cage as home. This makes the design of the cage for your bird very important. Here are the most important points you need to know before choosing your bird cage.
First of all the perfect bird cage needs to provide enough space for your bird to move around, to fully extend his wings inside the cage. Additional space is needed for bird toys, dishes, perches and other places your birds love to hang out such as swings or nests.
For a while I was working as veterinarian at a vet practice that was specialized in birds of all kinds. Well, my favorite bird was the Parakeet. Always. I admired their friendliness toward humans, their beautifully colored feathers – and forget about my work …
Well, I have some points for you to consider if you are thinking of getting one or two Parakeets.
