8 Simple Tips For Keeping Your Pet Birds Health

1. Birds need to eat a nutritionally sound diet to live a long life. Improper feeding can lead to malnutrition and disease, resulting in a shorter lifespan. Start off by feeding your bird correctly from the beginning.

2. Parrots and birds of the parrot family can eat various kinds of foods. Seeds should not be a parrot’s only food. This is a mistake many new bird owners make. Seeds contain mostly fat and not enough protein, and very few vitamins.

3. Birds can eat most table foods, but it is best to stick to healthy items containing whole grains, pretzels, whole-wheat pasta, and bread. Foods high in fat should be avoided. Never feed them avocados as they are toxic to birds.

4. Good sources of nutrition for your bird include beans and legumes and various vegetables and fruits. Some birds resist new foods at first, while others are open to trying many new things. Although it may take some time, keep trying to introduce your bird to various healthy foods.

5. Changes to a bird’s diet should be done slowly and progressively over time. Provide fresh foods twice per day for approximately an hour each time. Be careful not to leave fresh food in the bird’s cage too long as it will develop bacteria which can make your bird sick.

6. Your bird should be fed two times per day. This will result in your bird getting hungry, making it more active. Also, a good appetite can make it more likely that your bird will try new foods. Feeding at set times twice per day will also allow you to monitor how much your bird is eating. If your bird is not eating well, this can tell you that it is not feeling well or has a health problem.

7. If your bird is a picky eater and you cannot get it to eat a varied diet, you can try warming or cooking the vegetables. Take away seeds except at mealtime until your bird starts eating healthy foods on a regular basis.

8. As water is necessary for people, it is also essential for healthy birds. Keep your bird’s water dish filled with fresh, clean water at all times. Bird bowls can become very dirty and should be cleaned each day with hot soapy water. Once every other week, you should clean your bird’s water dish with a solution containing bleach. Also, make it a point to pick up some water-soluble bird vitamins at the local pet store and add vitamins to your bird’s water daily.

Birds make excellent pets for the whole family, and they can live a long time if taken care of properly. Proper care of birds includes maintaining a healthy diet of seeds, vegetables, and fruit.
