I Find It Difficult To Keep These Birds As Pet, Help by IMASTEX: 10:07am On Jun 28, 2016
I have this long interest and passion to keep birds as pet. I have severally caught some few birds which I intended keeping as pet. The shocking news is that I usually wake up the following day to meet them dead, even before I could get a bird cage. I do have this bad feelings been somehow responsible for the deaths, and I am equally not pleased not to have my long desires of keeping a bird as pet come through.
Please, I need advise on the following:
1. What could be exactly responsible for the deaths?
2. What is the name of this particular breeds?
3. Can they be kept as pet. If no, which do you recommend? And if Yes, how?

Thanks for your response

I think they died of thirst. Did you provide them with water? Dehydration kills much faster than hunger. Plan for them before getting new ones.
Yes, I made provision for their water and even feed.
Okay, it is just that I am a bit confuse if they can be kept as pet. So that I don't get to buy a bird cage and at the end not able to use it.

Try Parakeets. I would hv recommended a Parrot but its bigger in size than the dead bird.

This man, you are busy trapping wild Sparrows and expecting them to survive? wink ..Haba, leave those ones alone now?...why would you want sparrow as a pet?/I have never come across anyone who keeps them as pets.. If you want a small bird that can sing, colourful and good to look at, go to pet shop or market and look for Canaries.. something like the pix attached below..

You will need a spacious cage specifically made for bird keeping, you can get a sample online then get a carpenter to build you a good one; nkata ( basket) is no place to house a bird, its too confined in opinion, even for a short period..

There was a thread here on Canaries a few months ago, you can search for it to get a better understanding in keeping these wonderful birds.. good luck

Op is that yellow fluid coming from the dead bird?, am I the only one who think this is unsafe?.

You need a pet, go to pet shop.

What you are doing is like taking a man of the street (his natural domain) and put him in confined space (prison).

What do you think birds do with wings......FLYYYYY OP.

Stop killing them.

I remember this species of bird. They sometimes fly into our house back then, and we trap them and attempt to keep them as pets. But just like OPs bird, they end up dead.

I guess they can't be tamed, or we were doing something wrong, like keeping them in a small basket.

i suggest getting a parrot, i dont have one but the fact they can actually talk makes them amazing i would say.

In other news, do you need a natural permanent hair removal solution? Have you heard about thanaka powder and kusumba oil? Google and read more about both of them and send an email to kinibd@yahoo.com if interested in purchasing. Thanks.

No thanks Sir, I only wanted birds. By the way, I am a snail farmer and an erectile health expert: check my signature for details. As an agriculturalists. I have interest for birds, some other animals and plants.

This specie of bird cannot be caged. They always want to be free and live a free live. No matter how much food and water you give it, it will die. The bird died of boredom.

Invest in a cage, look for where to suspend it in the air. The cold floor with no where to perch killed that poor bird angry

ha ha ha. you funny gan

you are struggling with common sparrow while i dey struggle with baby falcon sef. (kestrel)

btw I don't cage my bird. I used to tie it, but the sharp guy untied all the knots on its leg and ripped of its anklets.

so i just let him free around my house and balcony which is spacious enough and filled with plants.
(still training him though so i can take her outdoors later for hunting small prey).

ample amount of sunlight and perching spots to spread his wings.



A perch is necessary. mine needs a rough carpeted material. don't let your bird perch on the cold floor. it will get bumblefoot or some other sore condition.


make sure his dietery requirements are fulfilled.

In my case , my girl needs fresh meat, bones, insect , lizard and live prey if possible. (day old chick, rats, sparrow, etc.)

if giving just organ meat, add some vitamin powder or inject vitamin supplements into the food.

Always provide sufficient water.


summary:


-enough space
-perch
-shelter/box/nest
-nutritious food
-water
-sunlight/fresh air
-company . remember for birds : Boredom kills .
