We have always been attracted to birds and love to watch them in nature as they appear so carefree, gracefully moving in the sky, displaying their variety of colors and sizes. Their natural beauty amazes us at their creation.
However, little is known about their proper care in captivity. Truly they are a species which has inadequate health care. As caretakers, hundreds of dollars on cages, food, toys, and a wide variety of care products may be spent without ever fully determining their physical requirements for captivity. In the last thirty years, the advances in avian medicine haves dramatically increased. Despite these advances, many owners still put just seed and water out for nutrition and buy them toysfor amusement.
The Results: The potentially long lives of birds are greatly shortened due to poor nutrition, neglect and illness while others survive in a poor health quality, their owners being totally unaware of a problem until it is too late.
