  1. Finding a bird cage – Find a place in your home for the  stand and bird  cage. Make sure that the cage is large enough so that your bird is not cramped and make sure that the bars are not too far apart. You don’t want you bird’s head to get stuck between the bars.
  2. Consider how the cage is made – A stainless steel bird cage is your best bet. It will last for years also, birds with very strong beaks won’t be able to mess it up.
  3. Place food and water in the cage – I recommend food and water bowls that hand on the side of the cage. These are made for your bird to perch on. These allow for easy refills and may be more convenient than placing a bowl on the bottom of the cage.
  4. Add a bathing dish – Most birds like to bath. Add a third dish for bathing.
  5. Include accessories for your bird cage. Birds need perches and toys. Birds spend a lot of their time on perches. Place them at different heights within the cage. Get some  toys like your mirrors, ladders, and bells. These keep your bird from becoming bored.
  6. Line the bottom of your cage – Line to bottom of your  bird cage with something like paper towels. This will catch the droppings and make for easier cleanup.
  7. Add the finishing touches – Fill up all of the dishes with bird food and water, hang up the toys and mirror and finally, add the bird.
