Bird are a good choice as a pet, especially in those cases where you do not have too much space at home. There are many kinds of birds, from small goldfinches to large parrots and we must always choose a suitable habitat for them and, above all, their size. So that you know what you should take into account when choosing the place where your pet will live, don’t miss this article on how to choose a cage for birds.

Steps to follow:

1. The first thing you should take into account when choosing the right cage for your bird will be the dimensions, appropriate to the size of the bird.

2. The cage should be wide enough so that the animal can spread its wings and fly without the feathers hitting the bars. Somebody did a lot of measurements, and figured out the cage size needs to be 2-3 times the width of the spread wings. Here’s a chart:

3. While birds need to have enough room to fly, medium and large parrots need space to climb and exercise inside the cage. Long-tailed birds like cockatiels must also have room to avoid damaging their feathers.

4. You should also take into account that your bird will share space with the feeders, drinker, toys … Or perhaps later on you will decide to acquire another bird.

5. The distance between the bars will have to be sufficient to avoid that the beak or the legs can get stuck, but not so great that they can put the head through.

6. As for the style of the cage, it will depend on your personal taste, as well as the place where you are going to place it so that it fits with your decoration.

7. When you have chosen the perfect cage for your birds, you should always keep it clean to prevent bacteria from proliferating and the bird from getting sick. In this other article we explain how to clean the bird cage.
