How Much Does a Bird Cost per Month?

This checklist lays out all the costs that bird owners can expect to pay.

Who can resist these cheeky little guys? They flap into our hearts in next to no time, and are like real family members.

But for the good of the owner and the bird (!), every bird fan should consider whether they can afford the costs of keeping birds before buying.

Everyday costs are very low, but the cage is very expensive. But you generally keep it for a long time, and you only have to buy it once.

By the way: you can buy a lovely big aviary from around $ 300. An aviary is a large cage where the birds have enough space to fly for short stretches.
