Happy Pet Birds
It is easy to buy a bird, but you should not own one if you are not ready to take all the steps to have a healthy and happy environment!
1. Birds need unfiltered daylight.
Birds need exposure to UVA and UVB rays from direct sunlight or adequate artificial lighting to synthesize vitamin D. They need vitamin D for proper bone growth and composition.
2. The birdcage should be in a room where the occupants stay the most.
For the parrot to not feel lonely, it is necessary to place the cage in the room where most of the time is spent. But during the night, it needs to be provided with peace, silence, and darkness. You can also cover the cage at night with a dark cloth, leaving one side of the birdcage exposed due to normal airflow.
3. What is the ideal temperature for a pet bird?
According to veterinarians, most pet birds are comfortable with a temperature between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
4. How often should you clean the house if you own a bird?
If you own a bird, then you have to deal with bird dander. It is not always that easy, so we recommend calling professionals to clean your vents every four to six months. But if you are prone to allergies, it should be even more often.
