A bird can be a wonderful companion, whether it's a cockatiel, finch, or cockatoo. Nevertheless, you are responsible for making sure your bird has everything it needs to live a healthy and happy life. You don't need to worry if you don't have the right supplies in your bird's cage to make this space a happy and comfortable environment for him or her. We've gathered some helpful and practical suggestions to make your bird's cage a happy and comfortable space.

 

Food

Your bird needs food and treats to survive. Make sure you ask the breeder or shelter what they have been feeding your new bird before bringing it home. In some cases, they may even be able to supply you with some of the food they have been feeding your bird so you can transition them gradually. Some people like to feed their birds fresh or dehydrated fruits and vegetables along with quality pellets specifically formulated for their breed. Additionally, you can feed your bird cooked brown rice, beans, or nuts. Chocolate, avocados, onions, and alcohol should be avoided. You may also want to purchase some treats which you can use if you choose to train your bird or even just to give when you want to spoil them.

 

Cuttlebones and Mineral Blocks

It is necessary to wear down the beaks of birds because they are constantly growing. Cuttlebones and mineral blocks are perfect for this, as they provide calcium and other minerals, as well as an outlet for your bird's chewing instinct. Your bird can get enough calcium from cuttlebones and mineral blocks for a relatively low cost.

 

First Aid

It's also a good idea to keep a well-stocked first aid kit handy so that you can treat your bird in an emergency. The following supplies should be included in your bird's first aid kit:

  • Antiseptics or antibacterials, such as Betadine
  • Supplies for cleaning and dressing wounds, such as cotton balls, gauze, bandages, and paper tape 
  • Bleeding control products, such as styptic powder
  • Tweezers, scissors, and gloves are some of the general supplies you'll need
  • Supplements of energy or emergency nutrition, e.g. Wombaroo First Aid for Birds, Spark Liquid Concentrate 

Worming Products

In order to keep birds free of these nasty parasites, they should be wormed regularly (usually every three months). Despite owning only one bird, worms can be found on perches, natural foraging toys, and even on your hand! 

The presence of worms in your bird may not always be obvious, but some signs may include:

  • Diarrhoea
  • Weight loss
  • A sick looking appearance
  • Feather plucking
  • Droppings or worms hanging from the cloaca may contain worms
  • It is common for young birds with worms to cry excessively and struggle to gain weight 

We offer a variety of bird wormers at DrCarl, including Aristopet Bird Wormer Plus Syrup, Avitrol Plus, and Wormout Gel. 

Supplements

Your bird will be in excellent health if you provide it with a variety of vitamins and minerals. Vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin D3, B complex vitamins, and calcium are among the essential vitamins and minerals.

In birds, vitamin A deficiency affects their eyes, feathers, immune system, and reproductive system. Some birds may need supplementation of vitamin D3 if they do not get enough exposure to direct sunlight. In order for your bird to absorb nutrients from their food, it needs B group vitamins to break down the food. The right amount of calcium is essential for the healthy development of your birds' bones, feather growth, and the production of healthy eggs. It is also a good idea to add omega 3 and 6 oils to your bird's diet, which helps to boost its immune response. Find out more supplements for birds at Dr.Carl
