Bird Care Essentials
Large cages with a more natural environment is best for house birds and represents the most important investment you’ll make. Cages should be large enough, allowing the bird to flap its wings for exercise without touching the bars of the cage. At Quality Feed & Garden, we sell cages to house the birds we sell in many different sizes and designs.
Perches of varying sizes should be provided to allow exercise and comfort for the feet. Improper perch size can cause medical conditions of the feed to develop over time.
Location of your cage is important. Place your bird’s cage where it can become part of the family, but make sure there is quiet time too for napping and sleep. Natural non-filtered light provides vitamins and minerals that help maintain feather luster. Avoid areas where major temperature changes occur, or where there is constant exposure to drafts.
Allowing your bird time outdoors can be healthy but can also be hazardous. So when you decide to provide your bird with some fresh air, stay close by to protect it from harm.
Birds are social creatures and will grow to need you, especially if they are housed alone. Work with your bird to get it used to being handled, and eventually they will expect and enjoy interaction with you.

We stress the importance of toys for your bird as they provide entertainment and satisfy many bird’s nature desire to chew. A good rule of thumb is to change out toys on a monthly basis to keep the bird interested and occupied.
Cleaning your bird’s cage daily, and spending a few minutes to prepare its healthy diet are all it takes in caring for your bird. Socializing your bird will eventually result in a companion who is happy to spend time with you and provide you with years of happiness and amusement.
