Simplify Spending

Find out how to save money on your bird budget

By Susan Chamberlain

Food, grooming, cleaning products and accessories are ongoing expenses for people who share their homes with pet birds. Try these four simple, cost-conscious tips to keep your bird budget healthy.

1. Hire A Professional or DIY?

Grooming fees can add up, especially if you have multiple birds. Prices differ according to the size of the bird, your zip code, demand and the venue in which you have your bird groomed.

House calls from professional groomers vary in price and region. In my area, grooming fees start at $40. (Don’t be afraid to ask for references.)

I think more people should DIY when it comes to grooming there birds. You should know all the aspects of bird care before getting a bird. But also you should have a professional or a avian vet show you how to do it. Birds can be badly injured if grooming is done wrong. Blood feathers can be cut and nails and beaks trimed to short. Make sure you know what your doing before you start grooming!
