Tips: How to make your budgerigar feel good in its cage
Budgerigars are among the most popular feathered pets. However, there are a few things that need to be considered for the colourful feathered birds to feel comfortable in their cage – not just with regard to the cage itself, but also its furnishings. Because a budgerigar needs special accessories in its housing – especially so that it doesn’t get bored.
How to equip the bird cage appropriately for the species
The most important characteristic of a bird cage is not surprising: it must simply not be too small. Above all, its height should be generous. If your budgie feels confined in its cage, this will quickly dampen the animal’s mood. Would you like to buy a cage for your budgerigar? In the Maxi Zoo online shop, you will find various high-quality models that offer plenty of living space for your budgie, thus facilitating a species-appropriate attitude.
Now your budgerigar’s new home still needs to be properly set up. As a starter, you should add a layer of special bird soil made of natural materials to the cage that is as thick as possible. The layer stimulates the bird to look about, scratch around and peck and also locks odours and moisture in. A bird bath, where the bird can refresh themselves is also a must.
Your budgerigar also needs accessories in its cage. The Maxi Zoo online shop also has a wide range of high-quality accessory products. Of particular importance are utensils from which the bird can extract food and drinking water at any time. Feeding cups and water dispensers are recommended as practical aids, which can be mounted on the wire mesh rods of the cage.
Variety in a bird’s everyday life: what it comes down to
Apart from the implements for food intake, the budgerigar should also most definitely have various activity options in its cage that offer it variety. If the housing of your budgie does not have sufficient activity options, your animal will quickly get bored and dissatisfied. Seating opportunities, for example, not only invite you to linger, but also serve as climbing toys. Arch and ring swings are just as suitable for this as perches, climbing frames and small ladders. Maxi Zoo gives you practical products that can all be easily attached inside the cage. The accessories are mostly made from natural materials such as wood, so that your budgerigar can also satiate its instinctive snacking desire without hesitation.
Energy balls with an edible filling have also proven to be a hit. Your feathered companion will love the challenge of getting to the delicious interior of the ball by pecking and snacking on it. Therefore, energy balls are not only suitable as a form of entertainment, but also as a tasty snack. Another advantage: this toy can also be hung on the wire mesh rods of the cage.
