    Soundproof a Bird Cage

    Any bird owner knows that bird cages can be noisy places, particularly at dawn and dusk. Although the sound of birds chirping or talking can bring much joy to the owner, inevitably neighbours may not appreciate the noise quite as much. %%AFC-ADVERT%%

    If you want the incredibly rewarding experience of keeping birds as pets without upsetting nearby neighbours, one option you can consider is soundproofing a bird cage. For more information on how to successfully go about this, read on.

    Soundproofing a Bird Cage

    To curb the problem of birds causing excess noise pollution, there are a number of soundproofing options that you can consider.

    Sound tends to echo in an empty space, so try to avoid placing a cage in the centre of a room. Instead, focus on placing the cage in one of the corners. Cover the back wall with a soundproofing blanket or sheet (these can be found both online and at reputable pet shops), and this will stop sound reflecting and travelling long distances.

    Place the bird cage close to a window, at an angle where direct sunlight will not cause too much of a problem. Sometimes it's boredom that can cause birds to chirp incessantly - and the availability of sunlight and a view to focus on can help things quieten down.

    If the noise becomes an overwhelming concern, you can always fit more soundproofing blankets and sheets around the cage - provided one side is left uncovered. Finally, if the cage is situated within an annexed room, a soundproofing blanket over the door can also stop your excitable pets in the bird cage becoming an irritation for others.
