Beautiful Birds You Can Own as Pets

Often, people will admire an animal and decide they want to keep it as a pet. Many times, this is not an ideal situation for the animal. This happens frequently with birds. Because they are beautiful and fascinating, birds are often trapped for sale in the exotic pet trade.

This causes problems not only for the bird species itself but also disrupts the ecosystem from which the birds come. It is estimated that only 1 in 6 of the parrots captured in the wild for the pet trade survive the process. The same is true for other species. That being said, some people work to breed and protect endangered species of birds. They release them back into the wild to restore decimated populations or help introduce them to new environments where they can thrive.

Budgerigar: The violet budgerigar mutation is one of approximately 30 mutations affecting the colour of budgerigars. It is one of the constituent mutations of the violet variety. The violet factor produces a visual effect in any bird which carries it. The effect depends on whether the violet factor is single or double and whether the dark and blue mutations are present. In total there are 18 visually different combinations of these three mutations. However, only three of these approximate to the colour specified by the visual violet exhibition standard. Budgerigars, or budgies, are sometimes referred to as parakeets. They are some of the most popular pet bird species since they are easy to tame and care for. They are known for being affectionate and friendly. Plus, they’re small and low-maintenance, making them good options for busy pet owners as well as those who live in more cramped living environments, such as apartments. Budgies can easily be trained, as they can easily talk and perform other tricks.

Canaries: You will want to get a cage that’s at least 2 to 3 feet tall so your Canary has room to fly. Set up your purchase is at different heights and put a couple of water bowls( one for drinking and another a larger, shallower one for bathing) and food bowls in the cage. You can give your Canary commercial pellets and vegetables like Kale , spinach and sweet potatoes to supplement. Cal don’t need feathered companions and they are not the squiggliest of birds. Still, most outgoing canaries like being in the same room as their humans and being talked to.

Hyacinth Macaw: Hyacinth macaws are some of the most beautiful – as well as the largest! – birds you can raise. They are sociable and fun-loving – there’s nothing a macaw loves more than cuddling with its owners. Though, they are huge, tipping the scales at 42-51 ounces and more than 40 inches in length. Therefore, you will need to make sure you have the space to provide enough leg (and wing!) room for these birds. That said, if you can provide enough space, you’ll be handsomely rewarded. These feathered giants are some of the friendliest birds around.

Owls: Owls might not be the first birds you put on your list when you’re deciding what kind of pet birds you want to raise! However, they should be at the top of your list after reading this article. It can be tough to find owls in many places, but you should jump at the opportunity to raise them if you do. These big-eyed birds are good-natured and loyal, with most people who raise owls having rehabilitation licenses that allow them to raise reduced injured owls. Owls are loving and friendly, especially if you have the patience necessary to regularly interact with your owl and train it to your presence. Barn owls and snowy owls are some of your best options in this regard.

Hahn’s Macaw, Besides Being Beautiful It’s Considered One Of The Friendliest Pet Birds. There are many reasons to own macaws – one of the best is how beautiful these birds are. However, lots of pet owners steer clear of macaws due to their size. The good news is that Hahn’s macaws tend to be a lot smaller than other options. They are only about 12 to 14 inches long yet manage to pack a ton of persona into one pint-sized package. As intelligent, playful birds, Hahn’s macaws are gentle when they are socialized and handled regularly. The more time you can spend interacting with your pet, the better – if they don’t get enough social activity, they can easily become depressed. They can also be incredibly noisy.
