Tips for Caring for African Grey Parrots The cage follows the rule: the bigger, the better! It should be easy to clean and maintain (no decoration or model cages).
Cage dimensions: 85 cm wide, 54 cm deep, and 147 cm height, which I believe the least for one African Grey Parrot; for two African Grey Parrots, a bigger cage with the dimensions: 100 cm x 75cm x 170cm is recommended. These cages feature horizontal bars that make climbing easier.
Further parrot cages should open through hinges above, preferably with a platform for the cage, so that it may be easily wheeled onto the terrace or balcony in the summer. The African Grey Parrot cage must be set up such that the grey is not exposed to draughts.
Many parrot cages on the market have too thin cage bars that prevent the parrot from fully wearing down its talons. The talons of the birds cannot be worn out equally. As a result, thicker branches of fruit trees, oaks, or beeches with bark that the African Grey Parrot can climb should be used. The diameter should be at least 4 cm, but up to 5 cm is preferable. In addition, a bar should be diagonally fastened in the cage so that the bird may climb up and down, honing its claws even more. If the claws do not wear themselves out despite all efforts, do not clip them. Even with the veterinary surgeon, it might result in damage. As a result, we recommend a swing for this reason. The handle is constructed of stainless polished high-grade steel, which is food neutral and does not contain any toxic abrasion.
The cage should be fully cleaned once a week, including all perches. Cleaning a climbing tree involves hanging it upside down and hosing it with water. In the fall, ideal climbing trees may be found in the forest.
Wing clipping: Wing clipping should be avoided since it might cause the African Grey Parrot to lose its ability to detect its flying direction and crash or fly into a wall.
Showers is crazy with parrots! Allow the parrot to spend some time alone near water to become acclimated to it. Take the African Grey Parrot into the shower with you on days when the water is flowing. You adjust it to the nicest one above on the showering bar, and everything is visible. After two days, you may gently soak your feet for it. You try again the following day, daring yourself to go a little farther. Some parrots willingly wash themselves in the wash basin of a dripping or running faucet. Following that, the bird is sent to a warm spot where it may preen in peace. Showering is essential for the parrot since the air humidity in our living rooms is quite low. We get 35 – 40% air humidity in our places during harsh winters with extended heating seasons. In comparison, they experience about 90% air humidity in the forest. Because of this obvious contrast, the bird’s skin might get irritated and begin to itch.
One should attempt to improve the air humidity in the bird’s immediate environment: place a moist newspaper in the cage drawer. By using water tanks on heaters or a professional air moisturiser, you may boost the air humidity by 60-65%. This is also beneficial to your health.
