  1. Choosing the Right Cage

The first step in creating a safe environment for your parrot is selecting the right cage. Make sure it is spacious enough for your bird to move around and stretch its wings comfortably.

The cage's bars should be appropriately spaced to prevent any possibility of your parrot getting its head or feet stuck.

Opt for a sturdy and non-toxic material to ensure the cage's durability and your parrot's safety.

  1. Providing Proper Perches

Parrots spend a significant amount of time on their perches, so it's crucial to offer a variety of perch sizes and textures. Different perch diameters will help exercise their feet and prevent any discomfort. 

Natural wood perches are an excellent choice as they mimic the branches they would encounter in the wild. Explore our perch selection here.

Avoid using sandpaper perches, as they can cause abrasions on your parrot's feet. 

  1. Offering Nutritious Diet

A balanced diet is paramount to your parrot's well-being. Consult with an avian veterinarian to determine the most suitable diet for your specific parrot species. 

Fresh fruits, vegetables, high-quality pellets, and occasional treats are essential components of a nutritious diet.

 Ensure a constant supply of clean, fresh water at all times.

  1. Stimulating Toys and Enrichment

Parrots are highly intelligent creatures that require mental stimulation to prevent boredom and behavioral issues. 

Provide a variety of toys, such as puzzle feeders, foraging toys, and interactive toys, to keep your parrot engaged and entertained. 

Regularly rotate the toys to maintain their interest. Our Alex Bird Toys are the best handmade toys. Click here to see why
