Keeping Your Bird Safe in Your Home

If you're a new bird owner, you should know that your pet is naturally curious and will want to explore when it is outside of its cage.  For this reason, you'll want to provide a safe environment inside of your home.  Here are a few bird home safety tips that may be of help to you:

Do you have plants in your home?  If so, you probably have watering cans also.  You'll want to keep your watering cans empty or in a place that is inaccessible to your pet bird as it could drown in a can that is filled with water.

Like many people, you probably have ceiling fans in your home.  However, if your bird is outside of its cage, you need to make sure that you keep all ceiling fans off so it does not fly into the blades and get injured.

If your house has a working fireplace, you'll want to invest in a carbon monoxide tester.  This tester is not just for your bird's safety, but also your own as exposure to CO can cause adverse side effects.

Finally, when you are not home, your bird should be kept in its cage.  By keeping your pet in its cage, you will ensure that it does not get into anything that may cause it harm.
