Today we want to share with you a special post:
How can you tell if a bird is happy?
Did you know that certain species of parrots have been scientifically proven to have the emotional complexity of a 5-year-old? Keeping these intelligent creatures happy and comfortable in pet situations may seem like a full-time job, but if you know the basics of your bird's needs, it can be easy to make sure your pet stays healthy and satisfied. Read on to discover some of the secrets to making sure your bird never has to deal with boredom, depression, or unwanted side effects.
Give your bird plenty of exercise.
In the wild, birds get all the exercise they need by flying, foraging for food, and protecting themselves from predators. In captivity, it can be difficult to provide adequate exercise unless you make a concerted effort to do so. Giving your bird some creative exercise activities will not only keep your feathered friend in good physical condition, but it will also ensure that he stays mentally stimulated, happy, and satisfied at home with you.
Feed your bird a varied diet.
For years, bird experts have touted the benefits of feeding parrots fresh foods such as fruits and vegetables, as well as commercially produced seed and pellet mixes. These foods are not only important to ensure proper nutrition and vitamin intake, simply introducing new foods to your bird will cause excitement and mental stimulation in your feathered friend. In turn, you will find that you have a much happier and healthier pet and an animal that welcomes a variety of healthy and bird-safe foods on its plates.
Take time each day to socialize with your bird.
Taking the time to socialize and bond with any pet is important, but non-domestic animals like exotic birds are essential. Think about it: why stay with an animal that you don't have a good relationship with? Because birds need to be domesticated individually, it is very difficult to keep them happy if you do not spend time with them. Be sure to set aside at least 3-4 hours a day for handling and playing with your bird in order to produce a happy, well-adjusted animal.
Teach your bird to do some fun tricks.
You don't need a professional to teach a bird to do tricks; in fact, birds tend to learn faster and more effectively from people with whom they have a strong bond. Teaching your bird to perform some fun tricks can do wonders for your relationship with your pet and your bird's overall level of happiness. Also, it's great to be able to show how smart your pet is to his friends and family! Remember not to expect too much from your bird and to keep your workouts short, fun, and consistent. With a little practice, you will be amazed at what your bird can accomplish!
Choose cages and toys suitable for your bird.
Busy work schedules and family commitments often prevent bird owners from spending all hours of the day with their pets, and that's understandable. However, it's important to do everything you can to make sure your bird is entertained during times when he can't play with his feathered friend. Choosing interesting and appropriate bird toys and cage accessories is an important part of keeping your bird happy every day. However, remember that birds are very much like young children in that they will quickly get bored with the same old toys. Try to put together a collection of sundries that you can rotate in and out of your bird's cage to keep them "fresh" and interesting to your pet.
