Birds are the third most popular pet in the United States. Even though they
are small and caged, birds still require a great deal of care and attention. They are complex creatures, and if you take good care of your own bird, you will have the opportunity to see what unique pets they are.
While one bird can make a wonderful addition to your family, he’d probably be a lot happier with a friend of the same species. Even though male canaries may typically be kept by themselves, many birds are happier with a partner or small flock. In most cases, male/female pairs will do the best together. Finches frequently live in flocks of 100 or more, so having just one finch is contrary to their nature.
Unlike cats, dogs, rabbits, and other pets, you do not need to spay or neuter your birds. These surgeries for birds are much more invasive, and because of birds’ extremely light weights, correct anesthesia can be tricky. Also,
since birds lay eggs, their population can be controlled by simply removing the eggs.
