Just like any other piece of outdoor equipment, your bird bath will need to be cleaned time to time. In order to prevent your fine feathered friends from becoming ill, be sure to clean your bird bath at least a couple times each season, especially if you regularly store your bird bath during the winter months. Also, you should use bird-friendly cleaning products, as those used to clean pools or pond can potentially cause birds to become sick or even die due to the chlorine and other chemicals in these harsh cleaning agents.

Here we came to our favorite topic: some people are great glutton that is why they try to please birds. The main parrot food is millet. It is sold in every “bird” shop. There should always be enough millet into the bird cage, birds know themselves how much to eat. They also enjoy oats very much but only oats (unpeeled, absolutely natural) which people hardly get anywhere in shops. It is found only as an addition in combined foods. As a compromise variant oat kernels can be given.

They also enjoy sunflower seeds, but not baked of course. Give sunflower seeds to your bird only several times per month because it contains lots of fats and the bird get stout. Before giving it to the bird it is good to crash it slightly (thus they will consume it easily). They absolutely adore fresh vegetables! They die for cucumbers, lettuce, carrots, peppers and pepper seeds (they should not be hot!). They also eat cabbage. Be careful with nitrates! They are particularly harmful for birds as they can even kill them. If it is possible prevent buying foods cultivated in green – houses.

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.

Just like children and pets like cats and dogs, parrots and other pet birds sometimes exhibit behavior problems that their caretakers find difficult to deal with. While there are a number of ways that birds can misbehave and irritate the people that they live with, there tend to be a few behavior issues that are more widely reported than others. Thankfully, most of these problems have rather simple solutions if owners put forth a little time and effort.
