    Considering parrots for sale? A pet parrot can be a great addition to any home. However, pet parrots require a certain amount of care for them to stay healthy, happy and have good behaviour. See the following guide for more information on caring for your bird that lives in parrot cage.

     

    Parrots for Sale - Cage and Cleaning

    Firstly, you will need to buy a parrot cage that is big enough for the bird to have room to spread its wings fully and for it to move around in comfort.

     

    The bottom of the parrot cage must be lined with paper that you should change on a daily basis for hygiene reasons. Put toys, a perch, food and water inside the cage for your pet parrot.

     

    Be sure to wipe away food and faeces from the cage, toys and perch with some hot water. Pet parrots must be kept in sanitary conditions. Clean the food and water bowls everyday.

     

    A parrot cage should be cleaned out properly once every 3 months.

     

    Parrots for Sale - Grooming and Feeding

    The pet parrot should be washed weekly with water. Dry the bird off with a towel.

     

    When the bird’s nails get too long they will need to be clipped.

     

    Always remember to talk to pet parrots as much as possible. Maximum social contact is vital for the happiness of your bird.

     

    A balanced diet should be fed to the parrot. This includes fruit, vegetables, grains and some meat. Fresh water should be supplied each day.
