Bird Grooming & Health

In the wild, birds naturally groom themselves with the help of Mother Nature’s offerings. But in captivity, they need a little help from you. When it comes to bird care—keeping your feathered friend happy, healthy and well-groomed—consider some popular products to make your job a breeze. Beak care is an important part of keeping your bird in top shape. A healthy beak is, in fact, a telltale sign of an overall healthy bird. Beyond feeding a nutritionally dense, fruit-rich diet, cuttlebone can be a powerful tool for keeping your bird’s beak trim and healthy, while preventing overgrowth. And it’s a great source of important minerals and calcium. JW Pet InSight Cuttlebone Holder Bird Toy allows you to hang these nutritious bones from any cage with ease. For an even bigger blast of nutrition, try Zoo Med Bird Banquet Fruit Formula Mineral Block Beak Conditioner. It features a similar rough texture to cuttlebone to help manage your bird’s beak condition, with the addition of nutritious fruits including mango, banana, papaya, and pineapple in a solid calcium base. Or try Zoo Med Bird Banquet Vegetable Formula Mineral Block Beak Conditioner with healthy vegetables and grains including carrots, white millet, spinach, alfalfa, canary grass seed and oat groats. Cuttlebone and these beak conditioners provide a safe, simple way to give your bird the trace minerals and calcium he needs while keeping his beak strong and healthy. Ensuring your bird can keep himself clean will allow him to remain healthy and happy. By bathing themselves in water, birds are able to maintain their plumage. It has been shown that birds with access to clean bathing water are even better at flying than unclean birds. There are some excellent bird baths, made for cages, that allow your bird to fulfill his need and desire to bathe and stay clean. JW Pet InSight Bird Bath and Penn-Plax Bird Bath easily attaches to the main door of most wire cages with a screw-on design. Lixit Quick Lock Small & Medium Bird Bath fits most cages and can be set up on the inside or outside of your bird’s cage with a secure twist-and-lock design. And for an even deeper clean, couple your bird’s new bath with Natural Chemistry Ruffled Feathers Bird Bath Cleaner & Deodorizer, made to clean and revitalize skin, while keeping oil glands clean and open.
