Housing

Pets need to exercise their wings and sometimes fly inside the cage from one wall to the other. Their housing should be large enough to house the number of birds you want to keep comfortably. The enclosure must have more than one perches for birds of different species. Birds love to sit on perches; it will prevent them from pooping on the food and water and keeping them away from sliding their tail on the cage wall. Their food and water containers must be more expansive than deeper so that food will attract them, and they will tend to eat more. It will be best to keep two sets of food and water containers; one would be available when you are busy washing the other. Birds love to climb the cage and fly from one side to the other; therefore, you should design it in the right way.

 

Nutrition

Supply your bird with fresh and healthy food. Different fruits and vegetables make a good diet for them. Cut the pieces of fruits and vegetables that are easily edible for the bird. You should give food at regular times of the day. Food containers must be kept hygienic and washed daily. It would be best if you keep water containers full all the time.

Toys and Socialization

Birds love to play with toys. Give them chewable toys to play with. Spend some time with them and allow them to fly in the home if you consider it danger-free. Allow them to sit on your shoulder and finger, considering the risks. Try perches of different textures. Let them spend more and more time with you holding the bird on your finger or the shoulder. You should provide a large bowl for them to get a shower.
