So it’s that time of the year again. Have you decided on the best Christmas gift for your parrot or parrot owner friends? We have made a small list of gift options you can choose from.
Some of the benefits of these options are that they are affordable, portable, and beautiful. Are you ready to make a choice? Quickly run through this list.
Providing your pet parrot with a bigger cage is one of the essential steps that you can take to see to it that the bird stays in good health and enjoy longevity.
What I have observed about parrots both in the wild and under as pets, have convinced me of how beneficial enough space is.
Appropriately-sized cages are perfect for our bird buddies to engage in a greater variety of behaviors, even reduces stress, help to reduce health-care expenses.
Training is often more comfortable with larger living spaces, as parrots kept in tight housing are difficult to interact-with.
Cage options for Love Birds, Cockatiels, Parakeets, and other Small Parrots
The A & E Victorian Style, Dometop Cages, and the Prevue Select Parrot Homes are great options for lovebirds, parakeets, conures, cockatiels, and other small parrots.
These cage styles provide lots of space in which to add rope and vine where your bird can perch, and will also increase the usable area.
One reason why the Victorian Cage is excellent is the roof-top door, which allows your pet bird to gain access to an open-air perch site.
African Gray, Amazon, and other Medium-Sized Parrots
The typical parrot cage hardly ever meets the needs of smaller cockatoos, Amazons, African Grays, and other active, similarly-sized species.
The A&E type of cages has a huge Playtop that is often labeled “parrot mansions,” and can accommodate a pair of moderately-sized birds.
Almost every pet shop should have pet toys that owners can shop for. Get some for your parrot or for that friend that has a parrot.
Options for Macaws, Large Parrots, and Cockatoos
Sulfur-Crested Cockatoos, Macaws, Eclectus, and other big parrots are some of the most desirable but difficult of all companion birds.
There is absolutely no way you can crowd these majestic birds. The A&E Double Macaw Cage stands as one of the most significant indoor parrot homes available.
Whether what you keep is a pair of Amazons, a single Rose-Breasted Cockatoo, or a flock of parakeets, an outdoor cage is essential. Outdoor aviaries are the best exercise areas or homes for your feathered friends.
These aviaries are available in five sizes from 3.5 x 4 feet to 9 x 5 feet, and one of these could well be the perfect gift for just about any bird pet or bird-enthusiast.
From the beautiful Java-wood climbing posts to the very adorable wheeled, wrought-iron units perfect for the largest macaws and cockatoos, you can use play stands to create vital out-of-cage exercise opportunities.
Cockatiels, Parakeets, Love Birds, and other smaller parrots will be excited to have durable “mini-gyms.” You should also know that Playstands can be used to lure reluctant birds from their cages so that they can get more accustomed to people, and serve as useful platforms where you can conduct training sessions.
Almost every one of us “expands” our diets once it’s the holidays, so pit won’t hurt to do the same (within reason!) for our feathered friends.
If you love the idea of spending more time doing food preparation than just opening a pack of bird food and pouring into a bowl, consider shopping for a book on diet plans for parrots.
Goldenfeast Tropical Fruit Pudding is a beautiful bird treat as well as a very nutritious food. It comes packed with preservative-free mango, papaya, figs, dates, cherries, prunes, cranberries, and other fruits that are mostly missing from the standard bird diet.
It is not only difficult but almost impossible to resist this one. Rats, sugar gliders, degus, and other small-sized mammal pets will also swallow this one up.
Key Chains, Memo Pads, and Magnets
If your Christmas shopping list includes more of sweaters, stocking stuffers than bird-friendly items, these you can shop for parrot themed notepads key chains, and other smaller items that parrot lovers will be thankful to have.
