  • Yummy food options may include pellets, nuts, dehydrated fruit, fresh apple slices, bananas, carrots, celery sticks, cheese, bagels, crackers, and more!

  • Once you have jam-packed the cage full of goodies, place the lid back on with the red ball on top to keep it secure, and then screw the chain back on in a clock-wise direction to tighten
  • The strong middle skewer is great for piercing pieces of fruit or vegetables, just like a kebab!

Why Toys are Important for Pet Birds

  • Toys are vital for your bird’s mental and physical health and have a major role in their quality of life
  • Birds are naturally active creatures and need to be provided with mental and physical stimulation every day
  • Birds spend the majority of life without you by their side to entertain them, therefore, they need a pleasurable, challenging and exciting outlet to keep their minds and bodies stimulated
  • Birds who do not have toys to keep them busy will become bored, depressed, unhealthy, and even carry out negative behaviours such as feather or skin picking, pacing, chewing, biting, loud squawking or destruction
  • Interacting with toys allows your bird to satisfy their natural instincts to chew, throw things around, explore, preen, chew, hang, fly, forage, and allows your bird to practice the natural skill of holding, grasping and manipulating objects with their feet
  • The physical exercise also helps to keep muscles, tendons, bones and beak in optimal condition

What is Creative Foraging?

  • Creative foraging refers to giving your bird an interesting way to search for and obtain their food
  • In the wild, birds learn to forage for food and have natural instincts to gnaw on wood, leaves and other objects – these skills need to be practised daily
  • Creative foraging replaces the practise of making food easily accessible in a food dish which only promotes laziness
  • Your bird must be provided with intellectual and physical challenges and learn how to become a self-sufficient forager by working hard to earn their food
  • When a foraging toy appears in your bird’s cage, they will explore it, discover that it contains food and instinctively learn how to procure their food  
  • Eventually, you can make a complete transition from open dish feeding to providing all your bird’s meals in foraging toys   

Scientifically Proven Results

  • Food foraging is universally recommended by avian veterinarians and behavioural scientists
  • Studies show that parrots that eat from a regular dish will spend 15-27 minutes per day to eat, whereas, birds that must forage for their food take 4-6 hours per day to capture and eat their food
  • Creative foraging provides environmental enrichment, constant mental stimulation, and vigorous physical exercise

Tips and Tricks

  • You can increase foraging opportunities by using multiple foraging devices placed in different locations
  • Place the devices around the cage so that some are more difficult than others to access, and change locations often
  • The feeding devices may be filled with your choice of food such as pellets, dried fruit, shelled nuts, sliced vegetables, seeds and other treats
  • The goal is to make your bird work for its food – however, if your bird is not able to acquire all their daily nutrition from the toys, you must still ensure they are receiving all the nutrition they need for their activity levels 

Important

  • Incorrect use may result in entrapment or injury 
  • Contains small parts
  • Keep out of reach of children
  • Always select the appropriate size and type of toy for your specific bird
  • Observe your bird's behaviour with a new toy 
  • Remove and replace the toy if it becomes damaged or worn 
  • Keep bird's nails well-groomed and keep them engaged with a variety of toys which offer different materials, colours, sounds and challenges
