Hi this is Jennica from Pet Planet in Riverton, Utah. We are going to be talking about how to take care of a bird. It's actually pretty simple, you just need a good enough cage. You need bowls and for food and water. You want to refresh the food and water each both daily. You need perches for them to sit on and you want to change the bedding at least once a week to get rid of any pesticides or anything like that can, might harm your bird. They actually, you can give them baths. You can get a bowl with water in it and they will splash around in it or you can actually get a squirt bottle and spray them or mist them and they'll just bathe themselves. There are toys that you can actually get birds. A lot of birds like shiny things like metal and mirrors. I know Cockatiels actually like mirrors a lot. There are also playgrounds that you can actually take them out of the cage and set them on and there's toys on the playground. If you don't want the birds to fly away when they are on the playground you can actually have somebody or you yourself clip their wings so they won't be able to fly away. If you put a mirror in the cage you actually want to keep it towards the smaller birds cause they do, if the bigger birds have them they might tend to fight with the mirror and with you.
