Parrots are unique small pets. They are extremely intelligent; however, with that intelligence comes the ability to be incredibly mischievous. Your parrot will need a home and a place for you to put them if you cannot watch over them – this will prevent your pet from discovering your closet and making a royal mess. In this article, we have reviewed the best parrot cages for your pet and given you our top tips on what to look for and consider when choosing a parrot cage.
What should you consider when purchasing a parrot cage?
When it comes to parrot cages, cages that are too big do not exist. Parrots love having the space to fly around and play. This place is where your pet will spend most of his time, so you should keep that in mind and buy the biggest cage that is within your available budget. Your pet deserves the space to ‘spread those wings and fly’ and that is why some owners opt for an aviary cage. These are extra-large bird cages that give your parrot room to fly within this cage; there are indoor and outdoor aviaries, the indoor ones extend from the floor all the way to the ceiling.
Parrot cages come in many different shapes and sizes; we do not recommend the circle-shaped ones because they may make your parrot feel as if he is trapped. It seems as if everybody pictures Tweety’s cage from the looney tunes show as the perfect cage, in fact, parrots prefer to have longer cages over taller cages as it allows them to fly across their cage and back. Due to this fact, rectangular cages are quite popular and come recommended by other parrot parents. If you can have a good balance of both, then you will have an extremely happy parrot.
When choosing a cage, you should ensure that the spacing between the bars will not injure your pet. The bars should not be big enough for your poor parrot to get their body parts stuck between them. The cage that you choose must be suitable for the breed and size of your pet parrot. For example, if you have a smaller bird you should avoid cages with large spaces between the bars; otherwise, you may return home one day to a bird on the run or the fly away from his cage. Parrots also like to climb up things; so having a cage with horizontal bars can make your parrot believe he is climbing up Mount Everest with a ladder and provide some entertainment and fun for your pet.
Some cages come with some accessories included with them. For example, most parrot cages come with food and water bowls included in the purchase; if yours does not, you should ensure that the one that you purchase will fit into your pet’s cage.
Perches are a necessity in your bird’s cage; if the one you plan to buy or have bought doesn’t include any, you must add some. Wooden perches are recommended to build up the strength of your parrot’s feet. They also are more durable (hardwood especially) and make it harder for your parrot to chew through them. We recommend providing perches of different diameters for your pet to improve foot health and build up his foot muscles and bones.
We recommend parrot cages that come with wheels or stands with casters to make moving your parrot between rooms or maybe even outside a lot easier. So, when you eventually want to give your parrot a house tour, it shouldn’t be that difficult.
Easy to Clean and Construct
Parrots are capable of creating a lot of mess, so it is wise to choose a cage that has the facilities to make clean up time easier for you. Some cages come with pull-out sections that make cleaning a breeze and many have seed catchers to prevent an annoying mess.
You should also choose a durable cage that won’t be a hassle to construct. Cages made out of thin wires should be avoided as they will not last long; your parrot could break through a cage made with flimsy wires/bars, which could cause them harm. You should also avoid any cages that are coated with a toxic material that could potentially make your pet very ill.
