BIRD CARE

What is Husbandry?

When we talk about caring for your bird, the word “husbandry” usually comes up. Animal husbandry refers to the practice of raising animals – in this case birds- for the purposes of domestication, breeding, and food production (examples are egg and meat production). As bird owners, you are responsible for making sure that your birds grow and thrive. This means educating yourself on:

  • How to select a bird to join your flock
  • Where to get birds
  • The type of housing that your bird needs
  • How to keep your bird happy
  • Ways to be a responsible bird owner

What’s the Difference? Poultry vs. Pet Birds

Poultry are domesticated fowls that are typically raised for the production of meat or eggs. Pet birds, on the other hand, tend to be caged birds not bred for their utility.

Although there are many similarities between all the different types of birds, it’s still best to know the unique needs of your particular birds, so you can ensure they thrive and are in optimum health.
