Being in a cage for most of the day can be very boring for your pet bird and can make him or her very unhappy, which can lead to a variety of destructive behaviors. By using a variety of bird toys and bird cage accessories, your pet bird will stay mentally stimulated throughout the day and be less likely to harm him or herself or do damage to home when left outside of the cage. To make life more interesting for your pet bird, hang a variety of bird toys in the cage, install mirrors for your pet bird to enjoy, put different sized perches at various heights inside of the cage and rotate the items in your bird’s cage every once in a while for a change. Not only will your pet bird be much happier, but it will also help to keep your bird healthier. Here are a few items that are sure to make life more interesting for your pet bird:
- An easy way to make your pet bird’s day more enjoyable is to add a hanging toy to your bird’s cage. Choose a toy like the Bodacious Bites Buffet for Small and Medium Birds or the Bodacious Bites Voracious for Large and Extra-Large Birds to keep your pet bird busy. Both are great for helping to keep your pet bird’s beak trim by enticing them to chew. It is a good idea to choose the toy according the size of your pet bird.
- Another fun way to keep your pet bird entertained during the day is to place a mirror in your bird’s cage. A mirror is fun for your bird to look and will help make your bird think he or she has another bird friend. The Hall of Mirrors Bird Toy is great for use in any type of wire bird cage and perfectly sized for smaller sized birds.
- To add more fun and interest to your pet bird’s cage, use a perch like the Oval Perch for Pet Birds, which allows your pet bird to swing. You may also want to place simple straight perches at varying heights around the cage to give your pet birds different places to fly to in the cage, which also helps to exercise your pet bird.
