BIRD CARE - THE BASIC  

Adequate feeding plans may be developed from a wide variety of commonly available foods or formulated diets specially prepared for birds by commercial companies may be offered. Ask a experienced breeder or an veterinarian for recommendations about the right nutrition for your pet. But notice, that every recommendation of an expert not necessarily bring the desired result immediately. Stamina is also a prerequisite for keeping every kind of pets. Sometimes the smallest changes in the environment causing the end of the road to success or to failure.
Here are some basic recommendations: A healthy bird can tolerate temperatures that are comfortabel to the owner. Sudden changes in temperature or premises may be a potential threat to the sick bird.
Pet birds can adapt to a wide range of humidity levels, although birds native to subtropical climates may benefit from localized increased humidity in the home (e.g., in bathroom with running shower or frequent spraying of the feathers with water). Domesticated birds like the canary are not as sensitive. For beginners is recommended to start with a domesticated species. Domesticated birds are Canaries, Budgerigars, Zebra Finches and Society Finches, also called Bengalese Finches. Some species of Lovebirds (peach-faced lovebird) or a Cockatiel are also recommended for beginners.

This pets will do best where it is made to feel an important part of houshold activities. A single pet will require much attention and should not be situated in a solitary area of the home. The busiest areas is usually the kitchen; however, this is not a suitable environment for a pet. Considerable changes of temperature, along with the danger of fumes being present from cooking, place the pet at risk. It is prudent to site the pet well away from any source of heat, or fumes and to ensure that the bird is out of direct sunlight. Consideration must also be given to draughts, which may possibly have an adverse effect. A pet lovebird should never be subjected to isolation. Where the home is ‘human-free’ for much of the day, it is better that two birds be maintained,if not in the same cage, then at least in the same room. A lonely parakeet or parrot becomes a very sad figure. A radio left playing during the keeper’s absence will serve as companionship to a single pet for short periods of time, but should not be relied upon as a long-term option. As with many of the larger parrot species, almost of the pets may in time form a strong bond to on particular person, often becoming antagonistic towards all others.

The size of the cage must be adapted to the size of the bird. A cage can never be big enough. The bigger the cage the better and it should be wide rather than tall, since almost of birds like canaries or other finches enjoy to fly back and forth. Each day renew the seed and water  and completely clean the cage as well as the food and water bowls once each week. This  are basic requirements for a good birdkeeper. Poor perches commonly lead to sores on bird’s feet. Perches should be made of natural wood branches of varying sizes. Avoid perches maked from plastic or with sandpaper. A perch should be placed to prevent droppings from contaminating the bird's food or water and to prevent the bird's tail from contacting food, water or the floor of the cage. Don’t forget grit and cuttlebone or calcium blocks. Both are necessity, because seed eating birds need grit and cuttlebone. The cuttlebone provides your bird with important nutrients such as calcium and iodine helps to keep the beak in good condition and grit help to grind the seed in the stomach.
