Things to Consider Before Bringing a Bird Home

The cage

The cage must have the necessary measures so that the bird is not stressed and has enough space to flap its wings and move in a comfortable and pleasant place. Although if you can, take it out daily.

The ideal location is in a place with views to the outside and natural light, avoiding the eyes of the patio or commonplaces, with little stimulation or a lot of noise. Also, remember that if you live in a block, not all the neighbors will like the song of the bird and could cause problems in the community.

Inside the cage, place a toy such as swings, sticks, and if required by the species, materials to make its own nest inside the cage.


Larger birds, such as parrots, will need to spend hours out of the cage in order to be healthy.


The cage must always remain clean and disinfected. No one likes to live in a dirty house! A good cleaning will help reduce the chances of your friend getting parasites or infections. The bedding will help absorb odors and make cleaning the cage easier.


Your diet should be varied, it will also help to make the singing pleasant and happy. The menu should be well balanced with fats, proteins, and vitamins. Of course, the water is always available, accessible and clean. Remember that each bird will have its specific needs, so follow the recommendations of your vet, but surely all birds will appreciate a tasty snack from time to time.
