Because the cage is the place where your bird will spend the majority of his time when you're away, choosing the right home is the most important thing that you can do for your bird. Here are a few tips to make that process easy for you. One: make sure the cage has enough space that your bird can move around freely without bumping into bars, perches, toys or cups. Two: make sure the cage has enough cups for food, water and treats and that the cups are easy to sterilize. We recommend ceramic cups. Toys; make sure the cage has ample places to hang toys, treats and other accessories. This is essential for your bird?s mental health as well as physical health. It is important that your cage has easy access for cleaning and maintenance. This is also helpful when you want to bond with your bird. And lastly, you want to make sure that the cage is durable and attractive as it will be a part of your home.
