Taking Care of a Pet Bird

Having a pet bird can be a great experience. With having a bird, you have to take certain maintenance precautions that you may not be aware of, especially if this is the first time that you have ever owned one. A few things you must be aware of are claw and feather maintenance.

Some people feel comfortable maintaining their bird’s wings to keep them from flying about the house. For their safety, they clip the feathers on the wings. Clipping wings is the same as cutting hair; it does not hurt the bird. You can also use clipping the bird’s feathers as a taming and basic training tool. There are people who prefer to pluck the bird’s feathers to keep it looking tidier; however, if you can imagine the hair stylist yanking clumps of hair out at a time, this is how it would feel to the bird. We highly advice you to avoid plucking the feathers.

The bird’s nails need to be maintained as well. You can use either simple nail clippers or special bird claw clippers. When you trim the nails, you need to look for the “quick,” or the vein in the claw. This is the blood supply to the nail, and you must avoid clipping it when you cut the claw. Another option to maintain claws would be to get a sand perch. This perch will maintain the bird’s nails over time.
