Birds are housed in aviaries or cages. Aviaries are great for colony housing and are generally considered better for the health of birds, as they allow them to get more exercise. Smaller cages are acceptable but should be big enough for your bird to stretch their wings and fly fully extended from one side of the cage to the other.

Most cages come with wooden or plastic dowel perches. These are generally too smooth and predispose your bird to overgrown nails and skin lesions of the feet. Ensure you add large diameter sticks and ensure that they’re rough! Branches from fruit trees make great perches. It’s also a good idea to have at least three different width perches in your bird’s enclosure, to mimic its normal habitat.
