Your questions answered (FAQs)

When it comes to buying a bird cage, the rule of thumb is to make sure it’s four times as tall and four times as wide as your pet bird. When measuring your bird’s width, it’s important to take into account its total wingspan. Your bird should be able to comfortably extend its wings.
Larger cages are generally better, if your bird is outside of its cage most of the day, you can afford to go slightly smaller.
When choosing the location for your bird cage there are a few important elements to consider. First, you’ll want to ensure that your bird is protected from extreme sunlight and changes in temperature, as well as any drafts and/or hazards.
You should also consider your bird’s view, placing them near a window or in a well lit room allows them to observe their surroundings.
When setting up a cage for your bird, it’s important to line the bottom of the cage with newspaper or paper towels. It’s recommended you avoid using wood pellets, cat litter or sand as these can be harmful for your bird.
You will also need:
  • Bird food
  • Water and food bowls
  • Toys (such as a bird bath)
  • Some perches
  • Some treats
This will ensure that your bird is mentally stimulated and happy.
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.
