Because birds live, eat and defecate in their cages it’s important the cage is disinfected and rigorously cleaned at least once a week.
The entire cage should be emptied, disinfected with a non-toxic cleaner. Most disinfectants should sit on surfaces for 10-15 minutes to ensure all the bacteria is killed. Once you’re confident the cage is clean, wipe & rinse down with clean water to ensure there’s no disinfectant remaining.
Your bird’s food and water bowls should be cleaned and disinfected daily.
Where applicable, toys should be cleaned and disinfected too. It’s important to replace rope and fabric toys every few months.
