The term “softbill” is loosely applied and often misleading. Rather than referring to a particular species of bird, it is an umbrella term used to categorize bids that eat a soft food diet, instead of a hard seed diet. A soft food diet includes nectar, insects, fruits, leaves, fish, and worms. The “softbill” term is most commonly used in pet and aviary circles to indicate a caged bird that feeds on insects or plants and whose young are helpless at birth.
There are as many different types of cages as there are softbills, and what is ideal for one variety, many not be best for another. Some softbills need more room than others. Most softbills are kept in flight cages, or aviaries, that are tall but don’t have a lot of floor space. Before selecting a cage, you should know exactly what kind of bird you have so you can accommodate its individual needs. Find out if the bird is a runner or flyer; is social or aggressive, for example. No matter the style of cage, be sure it can be easily cleaned, there is easy access to food and water containers; it is placed in a ventilated area; and is protected from the elements.
Softbill beaks are not designed to crack open hard seed casings. Instead, they are designed for catching insects or fish, extracting nectar from flowers, or eating soft plant material. The diet you feed your softbill will depend on the species you have. You should always offer the freshest food possible and attempt to recreate the diet the bird would eat in the wild.
Birds such as softbills need the opportunity to stretch their legs and their wings. A cage that is designed to allow the bird space to fly or hop is preferred. Food is also a good enrichment tool as long as it is not overused. Offering a new kind of fruit or live crickets will help to stimulate the bird. Adding new perches or changing the placement of existing perches will give the bird a new space to explore. Toys and safe natural items can add enjoyment to the bird.
