Whether you have small birds like Finches or Cockatiels, or large parrots like African Greys, Macaws or Cockatoos, we’ll help you ensure a healthy life for your exotic pet birds. With so many ways to feed birds — seeds, pellets, seed-pellet blends — that go into parrot fo, not to mention bird treats and bird supplements, it’s important to have the advice of experience to help you make the right choice for your particular species of bird or parrot.
Birds have a very high metabolism with a standing heart rate of around 200 beats per minute. Thus the nutritional needs of birds’ bird food, are much different than most other pets. Different species have quite different nutritional needs. A Lory is a nectar-eating bird; Amazons are prone to fatty liver disease so sunflower seeds should not be in an Amazon parrot’s food diet. At the end of the day, feeding birds is species-specific. Our 17 plus years of experience will help guide you through the choices. The flip side is we know how messy birds can be. High metabolisms mean lots of poop. We’ll offer you many ways to keep your birdcage or bird aviary and the area around it clean and sanitary. By taking some simple steps like lowering bird food dishes and placing paper liners in the cage bottom, birdcage clean-up time can be reduced significantly with the right bird supplies.
Using a handheld steamer can greatly reduce major bird cage cleaning time. We offer bird toys because we know it’s important to keep your birds and parrots’ minds and beaks, fresh, challenged, and entertained. . We feel the bird toys in a birdcage are like the leaves of their tree if they were living in the wild. A bird toy not only allows birds to forage and keep entertained, but they can also provide privacy when the lots of bird toys are placed in the upper 1/3 portion of the birdcage. Further, because birds are on their feet 24/7 bird foot health is always something that must be considered when accessorizing a birdcage. A minimum of three types of bird perches should be in every birdcage to exercise, challenge and ease your parrot’s feet. Knowing the right diameter and softness or hardness of the perch will keep your bird happy and fit which is why having the right bird supplies is so important.
We have developed relationships with the biggest birdcage and parrot cage distributors in the world. Because of this, we are able to offer a large selection of play top and dome top bird cages as well as many styles of aviaries. With 350 species of parrots, it’s easy to get confused. Our bird care experts work to make sure your order is not only accurately picked but that it accurately matches your pet bird. We examine every order to see if the bird supplies on the order make sense. For example, we ask does the Lixit water bottle nozzle size match the size of the parrot’s food on the order? Is it the right perch for the birdcage being ordered?
