Home Safety for Parrots

It is fixed in the researches and also our experience that; very few parrotssurvive as long as they can. In other words, very few cages can make a parrot’s life complete. The vast majority of our parrots lose their lives much earlier, as a result of accidents at home or as a result of running away from home.

Protect your parrots against other pets

Other Pets

Unfortunately, other types of pets are at the forefront of the risks. Especially cats and dogs are often kept in homes. These animals can cause two different harms to the free-running parrots in the house. The first, of course, is physical attacks. There are many birds that have been attacked, especially even though they have lived in the same house for a long time when their owners are not in the room. These parrots go to the other animal when the room is empty. However, with a sudden movement, they sometimes hurt intentionally and sometimes accidentally. In order to prevent this situation, animal owners should always be very careful. The second and main risk is parasites and ailments. In particular, dogs constantly go out to the outside world, sometimes they experience direct and sometimes indirect intimacy with other dogs. There are extreme parasites, that is, a structure that contains parasites, resulting from these events and the natural structure of dogs. Although the majority of these parasites harm dogs, they can make caged parrots in the same environment sick in a short time.

Metal Poisoning

In fact, it is a condition that decreases over time. Due to the lack of inspections in previous years, many furniture, white goods, metal home accessories were painted with heavy metal paints. Although these paints harm us humans in a long time, our birds die as a result of metal poisoning shortly after gnawing these objects. Today, states are making much more intense efforts to prevent the use of harmful and poisonous paints. Therefore, the risk is reduced. But it would be delusional to say that it has disappeared. But it would be delusional to say that it has disappeared. In addition, no matter what, we should not let them gnaw something in the house.

Non-galvanized, chemically painted cages will harm the parrot. Their beaks, which they use as their hands, will hold on to the wires while walking around the cage, and the wires will wear out and harm the parrot.

plants

Although we may think that plants are unlikely to harm our birds at first thought, many of the houseplants contain poisonous liquids and toxic substances. Your parrot, who will not care about this, may mistake the greenery you give and eat house plants and may face serious health problems. The surest and only solution is to prevent the bird from reaching the plants.

Parrots' Safety Belongs To Their Owners.

Kitchen

It is the most dangerous area for our birds. Birds must be strictly prevented from entering. It is only a matter of time before your bird will get irreversible burns when it touches a boiling dish, water or the hot steam coming out of the pot. Also, a knife on the counter is enough for your bird to cut itself. At this point, the definitive solution is to definitely prevent the birds from entering the kitchen.

Medicines

Just like the risks that are risky for our little children, any medicine left in the middle is also a serious risk factor for our birds. So much so that the drug does not need to be a heavy drug or a poisonous drug. The bird that gnaws at a simple aspirin or vitamin tablet has almost no chance of survival. The only thing we need to do to prevent this is to always keep all the medicines in a closed cabinet.

Do not leave medicine in the open at home, curious parrots will definitely taste it.

sprays

Considering that more than half of the products used at home are now in pressurized sprays, the magnitude of the risk becomes apparent. No matter how harmless a simple spray in the middle may seem, if your bird’s beak has a large edge or corner that it can hold and your bird grabs it and squeezes it from there; Be sure that this can easily puncture the pressure spray can. I don’t even need to explain the risks of a punctured pressure canister. This type of spray should not be kept in the middle, especially when your bird is free at home.

Electric cables

This type of spray should not be kept in the middle, especially when your bird is free at home. Do not forget that in these cables, which are a very attractive toy for our birds, there is electricity even when your electronic device is turned off. And it’s only a matter of time before your bird is electrocuted in just one bite. Passing these cables through points that our birds cannot reach will eliminate all risks.

Camouflage the cables inside the house, otherwise the parrot may gnaw those cables due to its nature.

Ventilation Fans

It is very dangerous to have a free bird in the room when these propellers, which we use very often in hot weather, are in operation. The thing to remember here is that the protective wires on the outside of the propellers are made for the safety of people. Although these wire gaps create a safe environment for you, your bird can easily insert its wing or tail.
