Bird Grooming and Cleaning
There’s no getting around it, birds are messy. Given a chance and the proper tools, they keep themselves clean and well-groomed, but you’ll need to clean their cage.
Birds spend an average of a third of their waking time preening and grooming them own. If they are flocking birds, as most pet birds are, they might groom each other, too. As long as they are not actively pulling out their feathers (a potentially-dangerous condition known as ‘French molt’), this self-grooming is a good thing. The down and contour feathers are essential defenses against the weather and other hazards, and the flight feathers need to be in good shape for efficient flying. For most water birds, grooming also allows the animal to water-proof its coat so it can both keep warm in the water and avoid uncontrolled sinking.
Keeping the bird’s home clean is your responsibility, however. This is a constant effort, as the cage should be cleaned every day and the surrounding area will need to be tended frequently. However, it doesn’t need to be difficult. A little preventative maintenance can work wonders.

Bird Food & Nutrition:
When it comes to food, your pet needs a balanced diet as well as lots of clean water to stay in tip top shape. Feeding your bird correctly for maximum health has never been easier than it is now. For a long time, the standard way to feed pet birds was to buy a seed mix, and possibly supplement the seeds with some fresh greens and a piece of fruit. Most kinds of pet birds see seed mixes as tasty, but the mixes are fattening and lack many essential nutrients. As a result, many pets died young from preventable diseases.
In the past couple decades, research into avian nutrition has made huge strides. This research has resulted in excellent pellet foods and ready-to-serve mixes for many species of bird, which will help ensure a long healthy life for your pet.

Birds Need Fresh, Clean Water:
All types of birds need to have fresh, clean water available all the time. In the wild, some flocks of doves travel for more than sixty miles every morning and every night to get to water. The trick is keeping the water fresh and clean. Your bird will get food, and feathers, and possibly droppings in his water dish, even if you use a hopper instead of an open bowl. Clean the dish and replace the water twice a day.

Bird Training and Hand Rearing

From stepping up to learning to talk, taking the time to train your pet bird can be a rewarding experience for you and your feathered friend.
Birds are more intelligent than most people give them credit for. The insult “bird-brain” doesn’t really suit the majority of pet birds. Like most intelligent animals (including us), pet birds become bored and restless if they don’t have something to occupy their minds. Also, there are certain behaviors that will make it easier for your pet bird to fit into your family. Chew toys and ladders are a good and necessary start, but you should consider training your bird.

Budgies (budgerigars) are an extremely popular pet bird, and for good reason. These small parrots make delightful pets, and are usually friendly and easy to tame. While they can sometimes be difficult to understand, they are quite capable of mimicking speech. Budgies are sometimes also called parakeets (specifically shell parakeets) as they are members of the parakeet family.

Parrots in the wild will spend the majority of their waking hours, hunting and foraging. Toys stimulate their mind and help replicate actions
