Seedzbox Guide to Feeding
Parrots at Home
Parrots are exotic beauties with vivacious personalities to match their glorious plumage. With their regal appearance and striking intelligence, they are fascinating pets that will enrich anyone’s days and nights for the better. A common assumption is that they are challenging to maintain and keep happy, but with knowledge and compassion it is not difficult to keep them content at home as long as we abide by a few crucial instructions when its comes to feeding and watering them, playtime and care tips.
First and foremost, a varied diet is essential to keep parrots interested and entertained. In the luscious rainforests they come from, they would have had access to a range of fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts which they could select from at their leisure. It’s important to try to replicate this diversity as much as possible at home, bored parrots can easily become frustrated and irritable, and constantly stimulating and challenging their taste birds is a great way to keep them entertained.
Apples, pears, cherries, grapes and peas are amongst the many types of food suitable for parrots, and they love it if they are encouraged to actively forage for their food, for example by hiding it in puzzles and toys so that a rewarding activity can be made of eating. Other forms of enrichment include perches, large cages, an outside aviary for the summer months, and some occasional fly time. A fresh supply of water, changed daily, is definitely a must.
Birds have been built to fly, and even those that have been raised in captivity love the feeling of being able to stretch their wings. This is why an outside aviary is a worthwhile consideration, because it gives them a chance to flutter their feathers, whilst also feel the sun warming their plumage. Placing fruit branches in their cage is another wonderful perch idea, and it also enables them to keep their beaks properly shaped.
Parrots are social and intelligent animals, and this is why daily interaction and playtime with these energetic birds is essential for their physical and mental well being. For the parrots, their beloved humans are a part of their flock, and they expect to be able to enjoy quality family time with their adopted flock members. With parrots this is particularly easy, because they are such wonderful conversationalists and produce a range of entertaining vocalisations.
An ample cage with plenty of space and regular cleaning is another important requirement that is often overlooked. When content and satisfied, parrots are able to form meaningful and long-lasting relationships with their human flock members. Their natural curiosity, abundant energy and aptitude for playfulness means that respond especially well to training, which enhances your interactions with them as well as deepening the bond.
