The Cage And Toys

Cage and Toys When you are buying a cage and toys for your parrot it is important to keep them in mind when doing so. You will find a happier parrot. Remembering that their cage is their bedroom is very important. This is their sanctuary will you are not at home and they are caged up.

The Cage Getting the right cage is important because your parrot is going to be staying in there and going to have to entertain themselves while you are out. We personally do not cage our parrots because we find it cruel and unusual punishment, so yes they live with us in the living room. We have parroted proofed our house like you would baby proof your home with your two years old. We still have cages though so they have some sort of retreat they can go to if the desire to do so. It has all the guidelines one asks for a parrot cage. Twice the width so they may spread their wings and 1 ½ in length for their tail. I like my food bowls to have an outside door so I may retrieve them, it just makes it easier. Like a dog, parrots can get possessive about their food bowls. I like their play tops to also have food bowl holders. Just so they have a place to eat will they are out. My bar spacing is narrow enough so they may not get their head stuck in. These are things you have to keep in mind.

The Toys To the most important thing of a parrot are their toys. Toys are very essential to making a happy and behaved parrot. Toys are for swinging, throwing, screaming at and just good old fashion play time. It is imperative that when you purchase toys that you keep your parrot in mind with their personality and what they seem to play with most. Get different toys each time you are out buying parrot supplies. Buying at least one is a well-rewarded treat for them and your parrot will appreciate you for doing so. Keep in mind that a cage and toys are essential between a happy and healthy parrot and to a parrot with behavioral problems.

You want to always consider their personalities and needs just like a child. They have the needs of a two year old and in some cases the intelligence of a five year old. When I considered a cage and toys for my parrots I put their individuality into perspective. A cage is a huge investment monetarily and of course for parrot’s wellbeing in mind. You will find a happier and healthier parrot, having this simple knowledge of your parrot. The end result will be rewarding.
