Exercising Your Pet Bird
Your pet bird needs exercise to keep him healthy and happy. Exercise works the muscles and joints while it provides mental stimulation. Give your bird multiple perches in the cage so he can hop from place to place. Choose apparatus to keep your bird active such as ladders, swings and bell toys. However, don’t put so many things in the cage that it becomes difficult to move around freely. Flying is the absolute best exercise for birds. Schedule time outside the cage daily for flying. Socialize and work to bond with your bird during this outside time. Check the flight area and make sure it is secure and safe. Close windows and doors. Turn off ceiling fans. Secure items that your bird could knock over to avoid injuries. And remove any toxic plants that your bird may nibble on. For more information, contact your North Dallas, TX veterinarian.
