Pet birds are becoming more and more popular in Australia. Even though birds spend a lot of their time in a play gym with freedom, a cage is still required. We answer the some of the most common questions below.

Your Pet Bird Needs Space

First of all, you’ll need a cage of the right size and style for your new bird. Small birds such as Lovebirds, Budgies, and Cockatiels need at least a size of 45cm by 45cm. Medium-sized birds like Quakers, Conures, and Lorikeets need a cage with a minimum size of 45cm by 60cm while larger birds will need a cage at least a metre by a metre of space.
If you have a friendly, hand-raised pet bird, it will be best to have a cage with an open top. You can also have a separate bird stand where your parrot can come out of the cage and enjoy your company.
The next important thing you’ll need is a container for food and water. Most bird cages come with these containers already. But, we recommend you add another bowl so you can feed extra treats such as Protein Crumbles.

Make it a Playful Place

Your birdcage will need various perches of different shapes, textures, and sizes. You can use natural wooden sticks, ladders, pumice perches, and rope, and the larger the variety, the better it is for your bird.
Toys are a must for any bird as they are great for mental stimulation and to prevent boredom. There is a vast range of toys available for birds, and we recommend that you mix them up. Some toys are for chewing and destroying, and are usually made from wood, leather, paper, and rope. You can also provide toys for foraging where your bird must work for its food. Also, swings and bells are always a favorite of many birds.
