If you are thinking of buying a parrot, spending a few minutes reading this article will be time well spent. The most important question to ask yourself before adopting a parrot is – Are you willing, and able, to devote the necessary amount of time to properly care for a pet parrot? Parrot care mustn’t be taken lightly, because it is very important for the health and well-being of your pet parrot, and it consumes a lot of time in order to do it correctly.

For many centuries, parrots have been popular pets, and it isn’t difficult to understand why – they come in a variety of bright colours; they have appealing personalities; they are very bright and intelligent; they are reasonably easy to train. Unfortunately, these big plus points often cause people to overlook the cons associated with owning a parrot, and they rush out and buy a parrot without giving proper consideration to how much time and effort is required to properly look after a parrot. Sadly, this often results in lots of parrots developing behavioural problems.

There are more than 350 parrot species, and although each type has slightly differing needs, the following aspects of parrot care are required by every species:

The Cage – Having a large enough cage is the most important factor for having a mentally stable parrot. It needs to be easily big enough to allow the parrot to extend out and flap its wings. There also needs to be adequate room for five large parrot toys, without the parrot being cramped. Inspect the cage daily to see if it has been damaged in any way that could hurt your parrot (e.g. sharp edges created by your parrot biting the cage).

Socialization – If parrots are left to their own devices, they often suffer mental health problems. Therefore, it is vital that they get lots of social interaction with you and your family – treat him like a member of your family, and he will act like one! The surest way to achieve this is to put the cage in the area of your home where you and your family spend the most time. Note: Don’t place the cage in the kitchen, because cooking often gives off chemicals that are poisonous to parrots.

Nutrition/Diet – Different species need slightly different diets, but there are some common foods that all parrots like. Every parrot’s diet should consist of the following foods: fresh water, parrot seed (ideally enriched with vitamins), fresh fruit & veg, and parrot pellets.

Cage Cleanliness – Every day, clean the cage with water and mild soap. You should always wash your hands before you handle your parrot, or touch his food, because it is really easy to give a parrot a bacterial infection. For example, human saliva contains bacteria which is harmful to parrots.

Grooming – As unlikely as it may seem, you do need to make sure your parrot is regularly groomed. Their beaks and nails don’t stop growing, and require clipping approximately every four to five weeks. This is vital, because long beaks and nails can easily get snagged on various parts of his cage, which can easily cause an injury. You also need to provide fresh water baths or sprays each day to keep your parrots’ feathers in ‘tip top’ condition.

If you are willing to invest adequate time and effort into proper parrot care, then owning a parrot will be a very rewarding activity. Parrots usually do really well in a normal household environment, and they are great company. Having said that, parrot ownership is a long-term commitment, which shouldn’t be entered into likely, due to the fact that parrots live anywhere between 13 and 70 years.
