Providing your pet with proper nutrition supports optimal health and
resistance to infection. I feed a varied diet of blended seed & nuts,
pellets, thawed frozen vegetables, fresh vegetables (including dark leafy
greens), hard boiled egg, pasta, brown rice, fresh fruit (no avocado)
,millet spray, cuttle bone, mineral block & fresh water daily. Although
this is not a complete list it gives a good idea of the diet my birds
are used to. Never allow fresh foods to remain in the cage for more than
a couple of hours due to spoilage and bacteria formation, especially in
Always provide your bird with the largest cage money and space can
afford. For small & medium size birds such as quakers, ring necks,
conures etc. a cage with 1/2 inch by 1 inch wire spacing is best. For
larger birds such as African Grays, Cockatoos, Macaws etc. a cage with
1 inch wire spacing is best. Allowing your bird ample time out of the
cage each day (minimum 2 hours) is very beneficial to your birds mental
and physical health.
Keep your birds cage clean. Replace cage paper trays daily. Wash dishes
daily. Remove and clean soiled perches, toys etc. as needed. Disinfect
cage weekly with a disinfectant made safe for birds. (contact your local
vet for more information). Misting your bird or allowing it to bathe with
warm water several times a week helps to keep the dander down and also
encourages preening. Keep your bird out of drafts and too much direct
sunlight. Allow your bird to get out of the sun by providing it
with shade. If your living space does not have much natural light you
can purchase a Full Spectrum Light which simulates the natural rays of
the sun. Keep your birds wings clipped to avoid accidents or escape. Always supervise your bird when it is out of the cage. Provide your bird with lots of stimulation such as toys, swings, ladders & chewable wooden
and raw hide toys. Check with an avian expert before placing any
natural braches in your birds cage. Some may be poisonous.
Health & Illness
Providing your bird with proper nutrition supports optimal health &
resistance to infection. Since birds often mask sickness, any signs of
illness or change in behavior should be explored promptly by your vet.
Locating an avian vet prior to purchasing your pet is a good idea. Have
your vet examine any new birds to check its health. Yearly check-ups
are also recommended. We provide a 72 hour health guarantee. Details are
provided in the sales contract.
