I don’t know any one who started out wanting anything less than a loving home for their bird. However, because they didn’t know all they needed to know about caring for their bird, mistakes were made, and their bird suffered as a result.
Even with all the information available to us, we still don’t know all there is to know about having birds as pets. It’s a continuous discovery and mistakes will be made. If you find yourself making some of the mistakes discussed below, forgive yourself. Do the research, learn what you need to know and change it.
