It doesn’t matter if you have decided to own a
large or a small parrot, it is always advisable to get the largest cage
you can afford. The most expensive is not necessarily the best choice.
Also keep in mind that parrots have incredibly powerful beaks and they
can be very destructive. The cage should be strong enough for the species
you are intending to keep. Never buy round cages, as they might look good
but are not suitable for any bird. Rectangular or square cages are better
as they have more room for the bird to move around. Bars on the cage should
be horizontal with vertical supports. This makes it easy for parrots to
climb around as all parrots are very good climbers.
Natural branches make the best perches. They allow the bird's feet to exercise as they vary in thickness. Try to use branches from fruit trees. If this is not possible, the next best is the Willow tree, or Elder and Tree Mallow. Most importantly wash all branches well and let them dry completely before putting them in the cage.
We can get most cages at discounted prices, and these can be delivered next day. For more information please contact us.
