Meeting a Parrot’s Needs

Parrots require the same kind of care as most other pets, but there are a few differences when caring for a bird as opposed to a dog or cat.  Just like dogs and cats, parrots need regular human interaction.  It’s fine for a parrot to spend part of their time in a caged environment, but being out and able to interact with their human masters is also important for their temper and development.  While in their cage, it’s a good idea to have a number of climbing toys and objects that will appease the parrot’s senses of sight and sound.  Most parrots like shiny objects with mirrored surfaces, and like to listen to bells and other ringing noises.

While the parrot is out of their cage, make sure to have few parrot treats on hand in case moving them back in the cage becomes a problem.  For the parrot’s diet, a mixture of vegetables, seed, and treats is the best.  Make sure to choose organic food for the best in nutrition and to ensure the parrot leads a healthy life.
