How to Choose the Right Bird Cage
by Ken Marlborough
If the tweet, tweet of little beaks is in
your future, bird cages are undoubtedly on your mind.
Bird cages are available in every price range. They are
also available in an increasingly diverse range of styles.
Bird cages are made in many different materials. Some
of the most popular are wood, metal, and acrylic. Powder-coated
and stainless steel cages are also available.
When choosing a bird cage, there are several main considerations.
The first is, of course, price. If you are on a limited
budget, you will not be able to buy a custom cage. The
second consideration should be the type of bird you are
buying. Different birds have different needs. Some birds,
such as Amazons, cockatoos, conures, or African grays,
require large cages. Others, such as canaries, parakeets,
and finches, do better in smaller cages.
The next consideration is purely cosmetic. You will need
to pick a cage that matches your décor. This is
especially important if your bird is to be a focal point
of your home. Bird cages are offered now in styles ranging
from simple to elaborate, elegant to whimsical.
Keep in mind that the main purpose of the cage is to keep
the bird happy and safe. To that end, there are a few
additional considerations. First of all, your bird cage
should have a large door. This gives you easier access
to your feathered friend.
For convenience sake, look for a cage with food and water
containers that can be filled from the outside. Ease of
cleaning is also important. Generally, metal is easier
to clean than wood or acrylic.
