Bringing a bird into your family is a huge responsibility, and it’s something that should not be taken lightly. As with any pet, you need to do your research before adopting your bird. Different species of birds have different needs, but in general:

  • Make sure your bird’s cage is large enough to give him plenty of room to fly, jump, and/or climb.
  • Provide toys. Most parrot-type birds enjoy puzzle toys and chew toys. Try different types of toys to see what kind your bird prefers, and make sure he has some available at all times. Inspect the toys regularly to check for damage or hazards (sharp bits of metal, frayed strings in which toes could be tangled, etc).
  • Let your bird out of the cage every day. The amount of time required varies from bird to bird but plan on a minimum of a couple of hours.
  • Keep the cage clean. Change the papers and spot clean every day. Give the cage and perches a good wipe down with unscented soap and water every week, and take everything out for complete cleaning and disinfecting at least once a month (more often if your bird is particularly messy).
  • Interact with your bird. Finches and canaries don’t require human interaction, but it’s important for doves and vital for any type of parrot. Talk to your bird, whistle with him, play games with him, let him cuddle under your chin while you watch TV, etc. If your bird is new to the household and is still learning to trust you, just hang out near him while you read or use the computer. If your schedule doesn’t allow for much interaction time, you may wish to consider getting a second bird so he doesn’t get lonely.
  • Watch out for any signs of stress or anxiety, such as plucking or screaming. Sometimes the cause is obvious (your schedule changes, a family member moved out, your new neighbors are noisy, etc), and sometimes the cause may be a mystery. In any case, a consultation with your avian veterinarian may be in order to rule out any medical causes and to help your bird adjust.
