Pet Care Tips for Birds

The Enclosure

Bird experts at an area animal clinic recommend that you keep the birds’ cage out of drafts and cooler areas of the home or room. Try to find a place where the temperature is consistent and warm. Cover the cage with a special cage-cover during the night to help keep birds toasty warm.


Still worried about a chilly bird? Try a heat accessory like a heat perch or lamp. Heat lamps for birds are similar to tiny heaters for the cage. Heat perches help warm your pet’s legs and feet. Both make sense for pet birds.


Toys make keep your pets active, which will help keep them warmer on chilly days.


Create a community and keep your pet birds together on cold days. Just make sure that you have ample room and that the birds are cordial before leaving them unsupervised.


Increase the food that you give to your birds at night to help them stay warmer.
