A aviary is the most important piece of equipment you’ll need to purchase for your new bird. A suitable aviary will assist in keeping your bird safe and healthy. There are many different types of aviaries, choosing the best one can be difficult fo the new bird keeper.. How do you choose the right one?

Firstly, research the species of bird you intend to keep. In keeping any type of parakeet, cockatiel or some other long tailed bird species, you will need a long aviary so that your bird can get enough exercise. Ideally, the aviary should be sufficiently long enough so the bird can actually fly from one side to the other. A bird with a heavyset body, such as a lovebird or a Sengal parrot will get appropriate exercise climbing throughout the aviary. These birds do well in a aviary that is taller than it is wide.

You should then consider the size of the bird aviary. Generall you should buy the largest aviary you can afford for your bird, a newly weaned handfed baby bird may feel lost and terrified in a large aviary. A young bird also may have difficulty locating food and water dishes. If you can afford to do so, it is a good to buy a smaller bird aviary for your baby bird for the first few months and then move onto somehting bigger.

Also keep in mind the spacing between the aviary bars. A great looking $400 bird aviary Is not very effective if your bird can fit through the bars! If you want to use wire mesh on your bird aviary then it is best to measure the size your mesh to the size of your bird’s head. A bird aviary built with one inch mesh is just the right size for a cockatiel to stick a head through. When cockatiels bring their heads back through the bars, they have been known to bend into a ‘U’ shape and put their heads into a different hole.

When the aviary size and bar spacing has been determined, consider some other design components of the aviary. Look at the cage tray. When removing it to clean, is there a grate in the aviary to prevent the bird from escaping? Is the tray deep enough for the mess your bird makes to be caught? If you still have a deep tray but there is no cage apron you may find the bird will still scatter a lot of seed hulls and feathers on the floor. Whilst you can put a plastic apron on the bottom of the aviary, a built in metal apron is a good characteristic.

To end with, don’t forget to have a look at the aviary cups. Ideally there should be an easily accessable opening to get to the cups without gaining access through the main door. If you are buying a bird aviary for a larger bird, the cups should actually bolt to the aviary unless you want to spend every morning and afternoon for the next 50 years reaching for cups that your bird has flung onto the bottom of the bird aviary

If you a replacing a bird aviary for an older parrot type bird, some owners have told me it’s crucial to get a bird cage of the same colour. It is assumed that a bird that has been accustomed to a white painted aviary, it won’t adapt easily to a metal coloured aviary.

If you live alone its not possible be out and about with others all of the time. There are times when you find yourself all alone in your house and have nothing to do. A parrot then as a friend is a good thing for you to consider in order for you to have at least a friend rather than being at home alone. It is worth noting though that getting a parrot is a huge commitment and one that should not be taken likely. A parrot needs much love, attention and care. One of the biggest responsibilities you will have is choosing the parrot cage your bird will be calling home.

For sure there are many parrot cages to  choose from on the market today. Some though will be poorly built. Many a parrot cage available today in your average pet store are built to look great and get the attention of the parrot owner rather than being built with the parrot’s health and well being in mind. There are many things you should be looking for in parrot cage before purchasing. Here are some of the most essential things which you should always consider:

•    Parrot Cage Size: It is better to choose a cage which is large in size. Give them the room to stretch and flap their wings to ensure they keep healthy and fit. Aside from that, a large parrot cage would also mean large space which birds do certainly need since they are used to with a wide and open space.

•    Cage’s Bars: The next thing to look for and consider is the actual bars on the cage. Make sure they are well spaced for the type of parrot you are getting.

•    Cage’s Pull-Out Trays: You should always make sure that the parrot cage which you are thinking of buying has a pull out tray located at the bottom in order to make it simper as well as easier for you to clean the parrot’s cage. All the best quality cages have these so any that don’t should be avoided at all costs.

•    Cage’s Quality: Quality should beat cost worries every time if your parrot is to remain safe and healthy. Cheap cages are false economy because your parrot cost you a lot of money so why risk his health and safety with a cheap cage. Look for cages with a quality finish and that are made from stainless steel or finished in powder coated lead free paint.

Picking the right cage is not as simple as it first appears. This is due to the fact that you have to consider many essential things like the ones mentioned above in order to make sure that your parrot is truly at ease and is free from harm. Take your time and make sure you get it right though, the last thing you ant is to lose your parrot through a poorly constructed cage.
