Birds and Fish for Display

Is it permitted for people to put birds, such as parrots, inside a cage, intending to keep them for display or intending to enjoy the sounds of their chirping? What about keeping fish in tanks?

There is no harm in that as long as they are not mistreated, and they are fed and given water properly. It doesnt matter whether it is a parrot, a pigeon or a chicken or other than that. The condition is that they be treated well, not mistreated, and it also doesnęt matter whether that is the type of animal that is kept in a cage, a pen, or a tank, like fish.
