To Prepare the Cage for the Budgie
By Geomil Georgiev
From the smallest parrots with great popularity among the lovers have budgies â€“ their weight reaches up to 40 grams, and the length of their body is no more than 20 – 23 cm. Usually cages for budgies are sold equipped with perches, made of wood or hard plastics. But after that the owner of the feathery ones has to complete the interior with several real, rough, unattractive twigs, because if the budgie never changes the position of its toes and always holds tight to the flat and smooth surface of standard sick, its toes start swelling, rubbing sore and there start to appear wounds and scabs. If you don’t have fine sandpaper to cover the floor, you can spread out under the layer of very fine ballast (or very coarse sand ) and an ordinary newspaper, which must not have colored illustrations. Most printing inks are poisonous for budgies. Something more that can threaten your birds is using twigs from the coniferous tree â€“ yew, whose wood is also poisonous for birds. It is best for this purpose to use twigs from orchard trees.
