Birds - Cages

Provide the largest bird cage you can possibly accommodate and afford for your bird. There should be plenty of room for it to move, flit around, and have toys* and perches inside with good access to its food and water.


Never buy a bird toy that has something on it that the bird could get any part of its body caught up in.

Since most cage toys are brightly coloured, make sure the colours are made from food colouring - nothing synthetic.

Avoid toys where any part of it could shatter in the bird's beak.

Before buying any bird cage consider that birds, if unhappy in their environment, may engage in self-destructive behaviour, like plucking its own feathers out or making lots of noise. While there are not really many drawbacks to owning a bird the major benefit is that once you and your bird do bond, it will become your partner for the rest of its life. Because it is so dependent on you, it will be very loyal to you.

When you are thinking of buying a bird cage, it's important to talk to an experienced breeder or well established pet shop owner (not one of these out of town hyper pet stores!) who can help you decide on the type of cage and bird that is right for you. There may be a local cage bird society that you can contact for more advice.
