Many species of poultry birds make fun, engaging pets. If you're considering bird ownership, the care requirements include providing good housing, nutritious food, and keeping an eye on the bird's health. You'll also need to provide plenty of enrichment and interaction, to keep your pet bird happy and alert.

Part1 Housing a Bird

1) Purchase a large cage for housing the bird.

Birds thrive in large cages, so opt for the largest cage that your housing space can accommodate. A general rule of thumb is that the width of the cage should be at least twice the wingspan of your bird. For some birds, being able to fly short distances within the cage may be an important part of ensuring it has a healthy living space. Some other fairly standard requirements include:

The bird cage bars should not be too small;

The bigger the space in the bird cages, the better.

2) Choose a rectangular cage for your bird.

Circle cages are bad for the bird. There is hardly any space for the bird, and no corners to feel safe in.Moreover, the circle tends to cause the bird to twist its head; the bird can develop behavioral problems from the constant turning and turning.

Do not buy guillotine-styled doors, since they are easier for the bird to escape from.

3) Ensure that the space is more than adequate if housing more than one bird.

Never house more than one bird in a small cage. Aviaries or large cages that are akin to small sheds are more appropriate for keeping several birds at the same time.

If keeping different species of birds, you'll need to be sure that the animals are compatible when placed together.

4) Ensure that placement of the cage is somewhere warm and comfortable.

Bird Cages should be kept indoors, and in a room with frequent traffic. Birds are social animals, and will become unhappy if isolated in a room. Also remember that you'll be cleaning out the cage frequently, so hang it somewhere that you can access easily.

5) Place some old magazines papers on the bottom of the cage.

This makes cleaning much easier, and the papers can be disposed of with ease, then fresh ones placed straight down for the next day's use.

Part2 Feeding Your Bird


1) Give your bird varied types of food on a daily basis.

As a rule of thumb, a healthy diet for most bird breeds consists of 75% pellets and 25% human table foods. Since precise dietary requirements are dependent on the species, talk with an avian veterinarian to see what type of food your breed of bird needs.

Ensure that you have correct feed for the species of bird.

Bird pellets, crumbles, or nuggets can be a good way of ensuring adequate nutrition for your bird.

Feed new seed daily.

2) Provide constant fresh water.

There should be a water dish provided; fill this daily with average temperature water. Give your bird water in a large and shallow poultry waterer bowl, since birds can struggle to drink out of deep dishes. Change water daily to ensure that it is always fresh.

3)Give your bird fresh fruits and vegetables every day or 2.

This adds greens and variety to their diet. A mixture or variety of foods is both healthy and fun for birds. Cut up and serve your bird a variety of fruits and veggies, including oranges, berries, spinach, and celery in a large bird food bowl or sand cup. You can also give your bird nuts and cooked beans for flavor and variety with their meals.

4)Feeding the bird regularly at about the same time each day.

To choose a time and try to stick to it, so that the bird knows when to expect its food. During the day, small fruit and vegetable snacks can be left in the poultry bird cage. Smaller birds with a higher metabolism may need to be fed more often.

5)Keep the feeding arrangements sanitary.

The bird drinkers and feeders should be located up high out of the way of any branches above the birds, since birds often drop feces into their food, which isn't sanitary. If the birds ingest their own fecal matter, they could become very ill.

Along with your daily cleaning of the pigeon cage, be sure to clean out the bird's food cups and water dishes as well.

6) Make feeding interesting for the bird.

You can make the eating experience more enjoyable for your bird by making eating time an interactive time too. For example, encourage your bird to eat a piece of food at a time, straight from your hand.encourage your talking bird to sing and talk for its food.

You can also try interactive puzzle feeders, which allow the bird to mimic foraging behaviors it would use in the wild. This provides critical mental stimulation for your birds.
