The nymphs are the smallest bird’s cockatoos. They are beautiful, intelligent and very sociable pets. It is an extraordinary company and even if you teach them they will be able to walk on your shoulders and even imitate your voice. If you want to give your nymph the best care so that it is healthy and grows happy, we recommend that you read this article. We tell you how to take care of a nymph.

Steps to follow:

1. The nymph is a species of bird in the cockatoo family and is the only species in the genus Nymphicus. Its origin is Australian and it is a very common bird as a domestic pet. They are granivorous birds and do not need a special diet.

The base of your food should be a mixture (of parakeet with small pipes) or feed. Both options are good and available at any store specialized in bird food and, specifically, for nymphs. You will have to give him fruits and vegetables daily for a well complete diet. You can give it well chopped cucumber, tomato, carrot, pepper, orange, banana, apple, pear, among other alternatives.

Very occasionally they can ingest biscuits, branch millet or even honey. A good calcium-based supplement such as cuttlefish or lime tablets is always recommended and they should never be fed lettuce, parsley or avocado, it can be fatal.

2. Your nymph will also need to have room-temperature, well-cleaned water on a daily basis. So clean and refill your drinking fountain every day, especially if it’s outdoors and exposed to the elements. Another of the basic foods to cover their needs is oats, millet and canary seed.

Once a week, although not out of habit, you can give them wonder seeds, as they are very fat. If your nymph is planning to breed, we recommend that you complete her diet with calcium intake, for example with hard-boiled egg and ground shell included.

3. Their cage should be wide, with plenty of room to climb, spread their wings, and play. If you have space to mount a pagoda it would be much better and better if it is the classic square cage where it can shelter. If you only have one nymph at least the cage is more than 1 meter and a half.

Inside the cage you should have water, feed, fruit, calcium, at least 2 poles to perch on, and swings. Everything so that he grows strong, develops well and has a life as full as possible. Your cabin should be cleaned every week because the feces are harmful to the nymphs. You will also remove the remains of vegetables and fruit that have not been eaten.

4. Nymphs are very sociable in the wild, they usually live in groups. It is recommended that in captivity they live with other birds as long as there is enough space. If you plan that your nymph lives accompanied, look for a much larger room so that they do not live overcrowded.

If you notice something strange in your nymph, go to the vet immediately, symptoms such as stopping eating, feather fall out of season or poor mobility are some signs that something is wrong with your pet.
