Birds can prove to be best pets, provided you adopt a bird that is well bred and fed. There are quite a few options available when you decide to adopt a bird. You can either go for a breeder, a pet shop or even the rescue organizations for birds to adopt one.
Different types of birds
- Caique Parrots
- African Grey Parrots
- Cockatiels, Doves
- Macaws Cockatoos
Are some of the most popular exotic birds which people like to adopt. However, each of these has some special quality, which will confound you and make your choice difficult during adoption. Some are intelligent, some can talk like humans, and some are even funny and can make you laugh. It is completely your personal decision as to which one you would like to adopt.
There are certain things that you have to keep in mind when you decide to bring a bird to your home, especially if you are a first timer. Exotic birds are mostly chatterboxes. While most of the sounds emitted by birds are nice, some are really shrill and ear splitting. So, adopt a bird that you will be able to tolerate.
These feathered creatures also require special attention when it comes to their diet. They need a good amount of fruits and vegetables to survive and you must also bring in a variety to the fruits and vegetables that you serve to them. Do not repeat the same food day in and day out.
Cleanliness is not the word for birds. Hence, you have to prepare yourself to handle messy situations. Though it is not very tough to clean their cages and them, it is still advisable to be ready with a vacuum cleaner. Birds are extremely social and you need to spend some quality time with them daily to keep them happy. Plan your day in that manner.
If you are adopting a bird for the first time, then small and friendly birds and less messy ones like Parakeets, Finches, Cockatiels, Green Cheek Conures and Doves are best. Good luck! 🙂
