A bird such as a budgie, canary or parakeet can make a very rewarding pet, but because they are designed for flight, you do need to take special care to look after them properly. They need as much space as possible, plus toys and lots of attention to keep them stimulated. Food and drink are important too, but as each species has different requirements, contact Vets4Pets for advice.
