Why People Like Exotic Birds
Well, just the name alone intrigues people, having something exotic really makes a statement. Other than that, birds are beautiful creatures and exotic ones come's in many beautiful eye captivating colors. The thing about exotic birds are that every different bird can have its own unique pattern and colors based upon that species, this is similar to humans and finger print.
Does Size Matter When Choosing An Exotic Bird?
Well that depends on you doesn't it? What kind of bird do you like? These birds come in various sizes pleasing to anyone. Exotic birds are large, medium and some are very small. So if you choose a large exotic bird like the Bird of Paradise, you would need a very large cage for this bird to feel comfortable in to fly around and pitch on branches in the cage and so forth. Remember, having large exotic birds will require you to setup very large cages.
Nutrition For Exotic Birds
Just like any other pet or animal, the nutrition should be as close as possible to what it would eat in its natural environment. Birds do not just feed on seeds, they do like to indulge in many tasty insects such as works, crickets, roaches, grasshoppers etc. There are many pet stores which do offer close to environment feed for your exotic bird.
All Birds Are Different
Not because all birds have feathers means that they are the same. The saying that say's "bird brain" is totally wrong as many birds have exhibited magnificent intelligence, birds such as the common crow. You should at least do your research upon the temperament of the type of exotic bird you which to keep. Know the birds intelligence level, it's eating and nesting habits, health factors, lifespan and of course, sound and agility factors. Some birds are agility freaks and constantly move and seek things to keep them active. You can introduce bird toys to your exotic bird to see if it likes it and if it will use it any at all.
Some Exotic Birds Can Be Quite Fun
I must confess that parrots make great pets and are actually fun to be around. One of the reason most people like parrots as pets is because many species of parrots just love to talk. There are some species of parrots that try to discover how to speak by themselves. You can discover your parrot trying to mimic the sounds it is hearing through the course of the day. This would be a good sign which means you could attempt training it to speak much more. If you are really looking for exotic birds which are lively and fun and active all day then you must consider getting a macaw and other parrots. These birds are extremely playful and will provide hours of entertainment.
People love birds, and they are pleasurous to just sit watch and admire. They are some of the most lovable pets in the world due to their natural beauty and many times playful nature. But remember, bird care exist. Many owners believe that once you get a get, stuff it in a cage and feed it seeds and water that's it. No, your bird needs much more than that and you should care for your bird the same way you would care for any other pet. Being a bird owner means being responsible.
