Information on Buying a Parrot Cage
Buying a cage for your parrot is not just something that you do on a whim. A cage is important especially with this kind of pet, who can be really restless and messy in the house. Besides, the cage will have to also depend on the kind of parrot breed that you have.
For instance, breeds that are bigger will of course need a bigger cage. This will not only ensure their safety but also your things safety as parrots can get really wild when they are out of their cages. They will claw on your sofa and chew on everything that they can get their hands on.
How big will it be?
The size is one of the most important consideration when buying a cage. You don’t just buy a size that will fit the current size of your pet parrot, you will also have to think about the other things that you have to put in there. Will he be able to move freely? Will he be able to fit in there when he grows?
Owners actually recommend that you buy the largest that you can find on the market. Some pet shops will recommend some cage sizes but remember that these are minimum sizes. If you want your pet to be comfortable and have peace of mind (which will also leave you with a peace of mind), then buy something bigger.
Also, make sure that the cage you will buy have bars that your parrot will not be able to get through. For instance, for large parrots, spacing that are wide can be good to minimize the feeling of being caged in but try to also see if they can fit into it. Small spaces in between bars are recommended for parrots that are small like doves and finches.
What’s the shape?
Although some people think that the shape of the cage is purely for aesthetic pleasure. It is not. The shape of the cages will depend on the kind of parrot that you have. For instance, if you have a small parrot, they will be doing some flying from side to side so the length of the cage is more important than the height.
The case is not the same with large parrots, which need the height of the cage for climbing, stretching and playing. Still, you also have to make sure that the width of the cage is enough for the parrot.

Parrots, also known as psittacines are birds of the roughly 372 species in 86 genera that make up the order Psittaciformes, found in most tropical and subtropical regions. The order is subdivided into three superfamilies: the Psittacoidea ('true' parrots), the Cacatuoidea (cockatoos) and the Strigopoidea (New Zealand parrots). Parrots have a generally pantropical distribution with several species inhabiting temperate regions in the Southern Hemisphere as well. The greatest diversity of parrots is in South America and Australasia.
Characteristic features of parrots include a strong, curved bill, an upright stance, strong legs, and clawed zygodactyl feet. Many parrots are vividly coloured, and some are multi-coloured. The plumage of cockatoos ranges from mostly white to mostly black, with a mobile crest of feathers on the tops of their heads. Most parrots exhibit little or no sexual dimorphism. They form the most variably sized bird order in terms of length.
The most important components of most parrots' diets are seeds, nuts, fruit, buds and other plant material. A few species sometimes eat animals and carrion, while the lories and lorikeets are specialised for feeding on floral nectar and soft fruits. Almost all parrots nest in tree hollows (or nest boxes in captivity), and lay white eggs from which hatch altricial (helpless) young.
Parrots, along with ravens, crows, jays and magpies, are among the most intelligent birds, and the ability of some species to imitate human voices enhances their popularity as pets. Trapping wild parrots for the pet trade, as well as hunting, habitat loss and competition from invasive species, has diminished wild populations, with parrots being subjected to more exploitation than any other group of birds. Measures taken to conserve the habitats of some high-profile charismatic species have also protected many of the less charismatic species living in the same ecosystems.
