As a basic guide to ensure your bird experiences the best possible adjustment to it’s new home we offer a few hints and tip in getting them settled, from placing the cage in a quite room away from a window, scattering a small amount of seed on the cage floor while your bird is learning it’s new surroundings to adding toys in gradually as the bird becomes more settled, as well as general health care, cleaning and feeding advice.
At Pet City we aim to give you and your new pet professional care and advice to ensure a long and happy future.
