Do birds fart? The answer is “No”. However, I have heard one of my lovebirds emitted fart-like sound. Why would it happen?
Some friends asked me how to grow wheat grass (cat grass) for their birds. The method of planting wheatgrass is actually very simple, no matter by water or soil. I am going to introduce you the water-planting (hydroponics) method. I like water-planting because it is much more easier and convenient than soil-planting. You can even have harvest in just a few days. Growing your own wheatgrass is healthier for your birds because the grass is fresh and grown without chemicals. Wheatgrass seeds can be found in the shops/places where are selling plants.
If your birds don’t put their food into the water bowl, you are a lucky person. It’s really a headache if your birds love putting food or toys into the bowl because it may possibly “pollute” their drinking water. Bird lovers are used to “monitoring” the water quality and changing it frequently every day.
We usually consider 1 year for dog equals to 7 years for you. Similar to dogs, birds’ age should be viewed relative to its life span. Different bird species have different life span. Grey parrots have an average life span of 50 years, lovebirds have 10-15 years. I am using a bird with about 20 years’ life span as an example to show you how to estimate its age in human years. You can then estimate your birds’ in human years by proportion.
