Rearing Pet Birds for Love Pleasure and Affection

By Nathan Brown T Subscribe to RSS | January 9th 2012 | Views:

Most of us love having pets at homes. The most common household pet as you may have guessed is the dog and next comes the cat, but birds although reared less frequently makes exacting pets just as I found the other day while watching one of the channels on a Dish TV Packages that I had just subscribed. Unlike dogs or cats that need plenty of exercise, and not to forget that you will be obliged to take them outdoor for exercises, rearing birds is easier in big cities where space sells at a premium; even if it is a condominium for that matter.

Birds are easier to keep and love; they won't sneer like dogs or cats or other animals; won't tell us what to do and when to do, and usually are a satisfied lot. All that they want is a small quantity of seeds or pellets to feed. Besides they don't need an elaborate housing arrangements like for other bigger animals. What is more, you don't need to teach them games, no guessing to do about their emotions, and not even the hurtful words that we use against our pets once in a while. If at all they have any demands, it is usually a small piece of toy that you can leave in the cage and that is all that they want.

If you love birds, you will also love taking care of them. Don't we do that naturally to our children? Here are some tips that will help you keep your pet birds health and be a source of pleasure to you and your family. If you don't understand what I am trying to tell, just start rearing a few of them with care and you will soon be a bird enthusiast yourself. Since your bird will spend most of his or her life in captivity, you will be responsible to take care of their needs as well. Birds, like human are prone to diseases and medical conditions; they can get infected with viruses, germs or bacteria, and are also prone to obesity when in captivity. Here are some things that you can do to make their life a lot better, and get something back in return by way of love.

Mother Nature had not intended birds to be kept caged, they were instead expected to be robust, search for food and drink for themselves. Typically, birds fly thousands of miles looking for food and water; and some birds such as those in the Siberian region will fly thousands of miles to find food and procreate, and then return back to their home with a precision that will put the best pilot to shame. So, understand you birds breed and select the right food with care; usually not much; grains, pellets or a combination of both. Give variety to their meal that they would otherwise have got in the wild. Include some fruits, nuts, leftover uncooked vegetables, fruits (orange, peach, berry…just to name a few) even if they don't eat them. Remember in the wild world they would have torn a lot leafy plants just for the fun of doing it.

Birds need a lot of protein, just as we do. So let their diet consist of lots of protein, and let it be cooked animal flesh and twice a day. Not all birds can be fed with a standard diet, some are special on account of their body size or due to their genetic habits; Lories and Lorikeets therefore must be fed with syrupy fruit juices, or even a specially formulated compound. And then there are the soft-billed avian that will want mealworms, blossoms and leaves, fruits that have been cut into dices and nectar.

Birds will litter, and virtually at that; a practice that normally all birds pickup in the wild nature. So keeping the bird's cage can be a little bothersome, but nevertheless you will have to do it without any embarrassment. After all the pleasure of keeping birds is yours, isn't it? Consult an avian veterinarian the moment you notice sickness in your pet birds. Diseases can spread fast to other birds in the cage or even to those in the neighborhood; and even to human.
