Everything You Need to Choose and Care for Your Bird

Are you looking for Finch food? A pair of Parakeets? A chew toy for your Parrot? Uncle Bill’s has what you need. We carry a wide variety of birds and bird supplies, and our knowledgeable employees can help you determine exactly what you need to care for your pet bird.

Choosing a Bird

What are the best birds to have as pets? The answer to that question may be different for every customer. When you come to Uncle Bill’s to buy a Conure, a Cockatiel, or any of our available birds, we can help you decide which animal is best for you, based on a number of considerations, such as:

  • Personality – Different bird breeds have different personalities. Canaries, for example, tend to be independent, and comfortable being alone, whereas Parakeets (also called Budgies) need regular social interaction with their owners or with other birds.

  • Lifespan – Customers looking to buy a Parrot should be prepared for a lifelong commitment – Parrots can live for 50 years or more in captivity. Generally, the lifespan of pet birds correlates with size – Finches and Canaries have shorter lifespans than Parrots, but even so, they may live up to 10 years (or longer).

  • Care/housing – Even tiny Finches need a roomy cage, and a Parrot’s cage should be at least 4 feet tall. Cages housing larger birds, or several birds, will need to be cleaned frequently.

Bird Supplies

Once you've selected a bird to adopt, our friendly staff can help you choose the bird food and supplies you need to create a happy and healthy environment for your pet. Our quality, selection, and price are the best in the area, and we carry many bird supplies that you can’t find in other local pet stores.

Birds can be wonderful pets! If you’re considering a pet bird for your home, Uncle Bill’s can help you find your ideal pet and answer any questions you may have about bird care.
