Selecting the Right Pet Bird

Pet birds come in a vast assortment of species and personalities. Fortunately, there is a right bird to fit every type of pet parent and household.

  • Finches. Small birds with a gentle disposition, finches require the company of other finches. Keep in mind that finches need enough room in their habitats to fly, so it’s best to provide the largest habitat possible.
  • Conures. Although not known for their melodious singing, they can be taught to mimic sounds and whistles and love to play with a variety of toys.
  • Canaries. Known for their stunning colors and sweet songs, male canaries make for a great companion. Similar to finches, canaries need room to fly in their habitats. And if you’re looking to keep multiple canaries, do not house male canaries together.
  • Parakeets. Also known as Budgerigars, parakeets are active and need time outside of their habitat daily to interact with their human companion. You might even consider keeping two so they can bond with each other.
  • Browse all of our live bird care sheets to determine the best pet bird for your lifestyle. And if you have any questions about which bird is right for you, discuss your options with one of our Petco partners in any store location.
