When you think of bloomers, the first thing that may come to your mind is a pair of gartered bloomers women often wear under their skirts. Interestingly, bloomers mean something else entirely different when it comes to bird care. Bloomers are additional cage accessories you can use for your pet birds' cage. Perhaps they are called bloomers because they have the same look as women's bloomers - gathered at the top and bottom and ballooned in the middle.
In bird care, bloomers are added to cages to help dispose of bird waste. The bloomers are 'worn' around the bottom part of the bird cage. This way, the waste gets collected in one area instead of getting scattered inside the cage. This eliminates the chances of spreading the germs inside the cage and around its immediate area. As a result, pet birds -- and you -- can live in a clean and healthy environment with no danger of getting exposed to harmful bacteria.
An example of great bloomers for bird cages is the J.T. Industries parrot Birdie Bloomer in mesh from Pet Store. These bloomers are made of lightweight yet durable nylon that's hardly visible from afar. They will not detract from the design of your pet birds' cage.
The J.T. Industries parrot Birdie Bloomer can be washed by hand or by machine. These bloomers can also fit square or round cages perfectly, thanks to their gartered edges.
