Living Alone is Not an Option for Exotic Birds

Budgies, canaries and similar birds are grateful living companions, and not only for animal lovers with little time or space. However, you should be aware that these charming birds should only be kept in pairs.

Choosing the right food for your canary

Your bird’s food should consist primarily of various grains and seeds, as the shape of its beak may suggest. These can be purchased in ready-made nutritious mixes to ensure your bird receives everything it needs to stay fit and health.

Eating and sleeping: this is what makes up the every day life of the majority of pet birds. Whilst life in the wild can be more varied than cage life, many pet birds live a fairly monotonous life.

 

 

Budgies – do you want to breed them?

Budgies are some of the most popular pets around, so it may seem only natural that having chicks would make them even more well-loved. However, there are a few key points to consider before you look into breeding your budgies.

 

Cockatiel

Those who have dealt with the needs of cockatiels will have noticed that the common ideas that this bird is the “ideal bird for beginners” or is “easy to handle” don’t necessarily apply. If you follow the basic rules for the correct care for this species, you will greatly enjoy your entertaining mini-cockatoos and they, in turn, will enjoy your company.

Canaries

Canaries are generally considered to be very easy-to-keep pets, as they will take care of themselves if provided with all of the necessary facilities, including a birdbath, perches and cuttlebones. However, from time to time a canary will also need your help.

Wild Birds: Feed and Nesting Boxes

Nothing awakens the feeling of spring in a garden more than cheerful bird song. As snow and ice begins to melt, birds once again have a reason to sing, with the harsh winter over and difficult foraging a thing of the past. Most bird lovers begin slowly but surely to dismantle the birdhouses in their gardens – but wait! Even in the warmer months, we can be of vital assistance in helping our feathered friends find food.

Playing with Indoor Cats

As the owner of an indoor cat, you will undoubtedly want to make sure that your pet’s life is as close to natural as possible. This means that a home suitable for an indoor cat will have lots of variety. The fewer areas are off-limits the better for your cat. Flexible mealtimes are closer to a cat’s natural behaviour than eating at fixed times. You should give your cat its last bedtime treat when you go to bed yourself. Your cat will be more able to cope with stress if it has more variety in its life. You should find ways to keep your indoor cat busy and play with it as often as possible. Give it a new cardboard box to play peek-a-boo in at least once a week as this exposes your cat to new scents. You should also make sure there is some variety in the background noises in your home.
