When it comes to spiffy pet bird products safety always comes first! Whether you have a parakeet, a conure or macaw you know that these feathered beauties are into everything and dangers are lurking in many unexpected places. You need to feel secure that the cages, toys and foods you give to your pet bird are as safe as they are comfortable or entertaining. Being bird people ourselves we totally get that. And don’t forget to follow us on Pinterest so you never miss a great pet idea.
Bird cages come in a bewildering variety of shapes, sizes and styles. Finding the right bird cage for your feathered friends is a must if you want them to be as happy and healthy as can possible. Keeping in mind that different types of birds have different requirements to thrive in their bird cage, we've gathered a selection of large bird cages, free flight cages and hanging cages for you to peruse.
Something else to keep in mind is that even if you have medium pet parrots, getting a larger cage (so long as they can't fit through the bars, ect) isn't a bad idea, it'll give them more room to flap around and give you more room to fit in toys. Also, if you have a bonded pair that you need to keep together, having the extra space is always good.
Important Note: while having the right sized cage is important so that when your birds are sleeping or when you're at work, they'll be comfy, it's really, really imperative to remember that if you have a parrot it doesn't matter what super pet bird cage you've gotten, they need to be out and about with you most of the time. Parrots are smart and need room to roam and exercise outside of their cage too! We have some cool bird room ideas that you guys can look at, just in case you don't already have a space setup for your parrot.

Bird perches, like most bird products, come in a great variety of shapes and sizes. You can find everything from plain dowels to natural wood such as grape vines used to make them. Some fasten to your birds cage and others are worked into table top play stands. It's important to supply your pet birds with an assortment of different perches so their feet stay healthy and strong!
They can also be a huge help when it comes to nail trimming time, if you look at these pedi perch birds perches, you'll see that they have a sort of rougher texture designed to wear down your birds sharp little nails. There are also some featured just below.

Bird Travel Cages
Bird travel cages make trips to the vet, or anywhere else for that matter, a breeze. They are essential for if you have to make a trip, of any kind. Whether going to the vet or moving across the country, you're parrots need something safe and familiar to stay in while you go.
Recently we've been asked a lot about a macaw travel cage, and I gotta say I see why people have been having trouble finding a good one! Most every macaw travel carrier that I've seen has been too small! Thankfully, I did manage to find at least ONE! It's large enough, and it's see through. Which, admittedly I know could be problematic for some macaws out there, if they are easily overwhelmed. If they aren't though and enjoy watching the world go by as you travel, this might be a good macaw travel cage for you.
We've also been getting questions about the midwest poquito avian hotel, and I went and looked at it on Amazon and I have to say I don't really have anything bad to say about it. It seems like a great size for conures and African Grey's! Go ahead and check it out for yourself.
