While there are plenty of accessories for bird cages, just like other pets, birds need time for exercise and psychological stimulation. This is why it is important to allow your bird to have time outside of his cage.
You should make sure that you keep your bird’s cage in a safe environment, away from varying temperatures (away from a bathroom or kitchen), and in a room where your bird can safely fly around once you open his cage.
You want to keep your bird in a room where there is little to no risk of escape, and of course, away from other pets and dangers like plants that can be poisonous, open containers of water and sharp objects. It is also recommended that you keep your bird away from anything he could become tangled in.
Letting your bird have this type of play time should be enjoyable and should not be stressful for you as a pet owner, if you make a safe environment for your bird. You can make this time special for your bird by placing some toys or perches in the room to keep him busy.
If you are worried your bird will never return to his cage, don’t be! If you usually feed your bird in is in his cage, when he is hungry, he will return to his cage.
