Hazards

The phrase "curiosity killed the cat" could easily be rewritten to reflect a pet bird's curious nature. Birds seem to be able to get into just about anything, which means they can get themselves into potentially dangerous situations rather quickly. Because of this natural curiosity, pet bird owners must be extremely vigilant when their birds are out of their cages.

Part of this vigilance should include bird-proofing your home. Remember that some of the larger parrots are intellectually on a similar level as a toddler. You wouldn't let a toddler have free run of your house without taking a few precautions to safeguard the child from harm, and you should extend the same concern to your pet birds.

Choose a cage that has plenty of room for your bird to mm>e about, as well as adequate space for food and water hmnLs. perthes and toys.
