Home > Pet Guide > Birds > Mynah




Mynah birds have been kept as pets since ancient times and are arguably the best talkers of all bird-kind! They are active, intelligent birds who require a wider cage than you might suspect (to facilitate their natural hopping tendencies). Your mynah will do well on softbill food and love chopped fruits and vegetables. They are prone to iron storage disease and hemosiderosis, but with proper care, they can live to be 10-12 years old.
