Bamboo bird cages
Bamboo bird cages are used commonly nowadays by bird owners to house their feathered companions. These cages also decorate homes of people.
Bamboo bird cages are made out of bamboo which is a woody perennial evergreen plant belonging to the grass family Poaceae. Bamboos are the fastest growing woody plants in the world. Bamboo grows in the far eastern parts of the world.
So in the Far East countries like China, Japan, Taiwan and Vietnam people prefer to house their beautiful exotic pet birds in exquisite looking bamboo cages rather than the prosaic stainless steel bird cages. In China bamboo is considered to be a symbol of longevity and in Japan it is considered to be a sacred protection from evil. Bamboo cages are oriental cages that are hand crafted by the experts of the Eastern countries. Their beauty and oriental charm have made them popular not only in the East but also in the west. They are difficult to disinfect.
Bamboo bird cages for housing live birds
Bamboo cages can be used as live bird houses. They have a sliding tray at the bottom for ease of cleaning. They also generally have practical large entry doors and lots of perches so that the bird can play and exercise inside the cage. They are available in various shapes and styles. These cages are available in conventional shapes like round bird cages, square and rectangular bird cages.
There are bamboo cages that are both functional and decorative such as the pagoda style bamboo bird cage and stylish varnished or lacquered bamboo cages. Beautiful large triple storey bird cages made out of bamboo are ideal for serving as beautiful and usable homes for a range of large birds like Amazons, parrots, macaws and African Grays. Bamboo cages are available with many fancy tops like semi circular dome, round dome and flat tops.
Bamboo bird cages for decoration
Handcrafted bamboo cages from the Far East that are smaller in size make great decorative items. They can be used as wall hangings, plant holders or for conservatory and table top decoration. You can also grow climbing plants like the ivy all over these bamboo cages to grab the attention and appreciation of your guests. These cages make great living room accessories too.
