FEEDING PARROT, CANARIES AND PARAKEET RECOMMENDATIONS

Parakeet, canaries and small breed parrots are animals that need to be fed regularly every day. If they don’t eat anything for a day, they can die. Their diet should include bird food, vegetables, fruits, food and vitamins. Feeding method varies according to breeding, moulting, season, disease, breeding type. Care must be taken when giving vegetables and fruits. Make sure that greens, such as lettuce, are thoroughly washed and dried. Otherwise your canaries may have diarrhea.

You should blow the food in the food containers every day. Since the bait shells will remain in the manger, it may seem like the manger is full. Feed shells can also prevent birds from eating food. Empty or reduced containers should be re-filled with feed to half. Make sure that the feeds are not damp. You should pay attention to factors such as fungus, worming. These can cause the canary to have bowel problems.

Water containers inside the cage should be washed and dried with warm water every day. Fresh and clean water should be provided daily. Birds like to bathe on a daily basis, especially in the summer. You can provide this with fresh water spray or a container with clean water in which your bird can enter.

Keeping your birds’ cages clean is important for their health. The paper, which will absorb the moisture you put under the cage every day, must be replaced. The doors of the cage should be checked and the food residues inside should be removed from the cage. Weekly, the cage itself and all accessories in the cage should be washed and dried with warm water. Once a month, it should be thoroughly cleaned with detergent, water and soap.

Cage selection should be chosen according to your bird’s size and characteristics. In addition, when choosing accessories and toys, it is necessary to ensure that your bird is suitable for the size and type of your bird. The area where you will place the cage should not be in front of the glass in direct sunlight, where there is cold air flow. The temperature in the environment where you keep the birds should be above 10 degrees. Temperatures below this are not suitable for birds. There should be calcium bars in the cage.
