Things To Know Before Choosing a Pet Bird
• Check your state, local, and property laws before adopting or purchasing a pet bird. Many governments have ordinances against certain pets because of noise, size, or public health risk. • Identify a local veterinarian who has experience with pet birds (an avian veterinarian) to help you keep your bird healthy. • Learn about the different types of birds and their personal- ities and attention needs before you bring one home. Birds are very intelligent and social animals that require a lot of at- tention. Also learn about the life span for the type of bird you are interested in as many birds can live for 20 years or more. • Research how to properly care for your bird before purchase. Ask your veterinarian about the proper food, care, and enclo- sure or environment that is best for the bird you are selecting. • Select a location for your bird’s cage, perch, or enclosure. Pet birds need to be housed in a warm, draft-free location that has adequate lighting and is close to activity in the house- hold.
