    Searching for bird accessories online? You can find everything from bird cages to parrot toys on the Bird Trader website.

    Below we take a look at the top five bird accessories that will keep your feathered friend(s) very happy indeed…


    Bird Accessories: From Bird Cages to Bird Supplies



    1.    The Bird Cage

    When it comes to the bird welfare, this is the most important accessory of them all. Before you buy a domestic bird, it’s important to carry out sensible research into the types of bird cages currently available on the market.

    If you’re just buying one bird, it’s generally acceptable to buy a smaller cage, but for anybody looking to own two or more, a larger aviary may be more appropriate. Remember, some birds may have a tendency to fight, so you should also investigate cages with separate compartments if you have any worries about this problem.

    2.    Bird Incubators

    In terms of bird supplies, incubators will only be relevant if you are planning to breed birds. They can be a particularly sensible investment if you own chickens or ducks and want to hatch chicks.

    As you browse incubators for sale, it’s essential to bear in mind that some incubators are more advanced than others in terms of the role they play in the hatching process. Some incubators will be able to turn the eggs at regular intervals, while with cheaper options, you may have to turn the eggs manually.

    3.    Falconry Perches and Clothing

    Interested in birds of prey? Then you’ll need to buy all the relevant raptor bird accessories to get the most out of these imposing birds. Although there are many different types of falconry equipment available on the market, it’s best to start with the basics as you become accustomed with the hobby.

    Accessories that you should consider include a hawking jacket, a falconry perch and falconry bird weighing scales. Keep your eyes peeled on the Bird Trader website for bird accessories for sale that directly relate to Birds of Prey.

    4.    Bird Toys

    Boredom can become a major factor for domesticated birds in bird cages and aviaries, so it’s vital to ensure birds stay mentally stimulated within the cage to avoid problems such as lethargy, depression and destructive behaviour.

    Read our guide to parrot toys to learn more about the best types of toys to keep a bird entertained. Another key component within the cage is the perch, which is another great means of ensuring a bird can benefit from both physical and mental activity.

    5.    Bird Cameras

    Springwatch and Autumnwatch have been amongst the most successful of all TV shows in recent times, and it’s not hard to see why – the British public have always been fascinated by secret footage of wildlife.

    Therefore, why not join the trend for playing Big Brother with your birds by installing a bird camera into the cage or aviary – and this will allow you to keep watch on your beloved pets even if you’re busy doing the cooking or household chores.
