    Parrots and other pet birds fly hundreds of miles per day, forage for food, and participate in countless other survival-related activities that help give them intense physical workouts. Placing birds in captivity inadvertently limits their opportunities to provide themselves with adequate exercise to maintain their physical conditions, so bird owners must do what they can to maximize their pets' opportunities to move around and exercise more.

    They really don't.  Jumping from branch to branch is about it and isn't much.  With small birds (like finches) a very large tall cage that would permit them to fly somewhat would get more exercise.

  • I leave the cage door open for my parrot sometimes, he demands it! Place a birdperch outside his cage, little things for him to destroy or play? He eventually might get curious? Do Keep an eye on him, pls b careful with other pets around.

    flying is good for the bird. Mine flys around the room.

    Flying around a room (safely) is the bird equivalent of going for a jog.

    They need it for cardio and muscle strength.

    I do not think they do.

    Caged birds need safe free flight for atleast a couple of hours a day for their physical and mental wellbeing.

    Ask them what type of music they like and play it for them. They will dance and it is great exercise for them.
