    Foraging Dish Starter Pack

    A large rectangular plastic dish with metal hooks to attach to the bars of the cage. This is a large dish that makes a great foraging tray and is great for birds that don’t like to be down low/on the ground of their cage. It comes with a 500g pack of bird safe foraging substrate to get you started.

     

    Please introduce the concept of foraging for food gradually to your birds. Feel free to contact me to discuss if you need assistance with this.

     

    The rectangular dish measures 23cm wide, 12.5cm deep and is 7cm tall, it is suitable for most breeds of parrot, but particularly small and medium birds. The hook on attachment suits most cage bars.

    JW Tip and Treat

    A great cage-mounted foraging toy for our smaller birds, this simple yet enjoyable toy is perfect for Budgies, Lovebirds and Cockatiels. Watch as your bird learns to tip the pod to retrieve the reward from the tray below.

     

    Be sure to check out the video tab on this page to see this toy in use!

     

    Please note that there is a mirror that makes up the back wall of this toy. Mirrors have been found to be popular with these breeds of bird in particular, so it may help encourage your bird to this toy while they’re learning. Once they have learned to use the foraging part of this toy, you may wish to cover the mirror with some paper to avoid your bird becoming obsessed with their reflection. I have done this with my own birds’ toy and found it successful.

    Cane Basket Forager

    The new Cane Basket Forager is a toy handmade by me! An easy toy to introduce to your small parrot who is beginning to forage. Partially fill the basket with some bird-safe foraging substrate and sprinkle some pellets, millet or other treat on top then watch your bird swinging in the basket while retrieving their goodies. You can also put foraging surprises in the large 8cm vine ball at the top.

     

    The toy measures 20cm wide and 25cm tall. It is fantastic for Budgies through to Indian Ringnecks. It hangs from 3mm plastic chain and stainless steel wire. A loop is made in the wire, for you to attach your chosen hanging link from. All plastic ‘C’ links on the toy are closed off with a straw bead for safety. This toy isn’t suitable for large parrots or those who particularly like to chew through plastic.

    Hanging Buffet Ball (3″) on Kabob

    This toy is perfectly designed for feeding your bird fruits and vegetables. You could also fill with shredded paper, large pellets/nuts and parcels.

     

    Your bird just needs to reach their beak into the slots/openings in this toy to pull out their prize! Wrapping your birds’ chunks of fruit and vegetables will prolong the enjoyment of this toy as your bird chews through the paper to get to their reward. Believe it or not, this toy can actually help to reduce mess and wastage. Every beak-full of food your bird gets out, he has to purposely chew/work for so more often than not, he’s not going to throw it all over your walls! The tray also catches small pieces of food for your bird to come back to later.

     

    The Buffet Ball can be filled whilst on the hanging bar or completely removed and even used separately. All pieces come apart for easy cleaning and changing. The small ball attachment at the bottom is secured onto the pole by the threaded stainless steel inset into the ball. The Buffet Ball and tray of this toy are made from tough polycarbonate with stainless steel hardware to hold up against even the tougher beaks.
    The ball measures 9cm in diameter and each of the 12 slots (6 per half) is about 4cm long and 8-12mm wide. The whole toy hangs 37cm tall, including the quick link and the stainless steel skewer measures 8mm thick.

    The individual 3″ and 5″ foraging balls are also available in my store.

    5 Yucca Slices

    5 Yucca Slices

    A selection of 5 pieces of Yucca. Yucca is a type of plant and these pieces of dried plant stalk are bird safe, soft and chewable. Parrots, small and large love munching on the soft, fibrous natural material. It’s great to give as a foot toy or thread onto other toys. You can poke a hole with skewer, wire or scissors and hang it in your birds’ cage. By making small holes in the Yucca and pushing dry food treats into it, you can make this a foraging foot toy also.

     

    You will receive a pack of 5 pieces, as pictured – 2 discs, 2 quarter pieces and a half piece. The half is from a larger disc so is a decent size and all slices are roughly 2cm thick. These can all be cut to smaller pieces easily with a stanley blade so can make more than 5 pieces. As a natural item, the pieces do vary and can have ‘imperfections’ and areas of different colours.

     

    These yucca slices have come from the ‘Bird Kabob’ 20 pack (shown below), which I have opened and divided into even packs of 5 pieces each for those wanting to try a smaller amount.

    The last photo is an example of how food can be stuck in the yucca.

    Small Acrylic Maze

    This is a cute little foraging toy that is great for the smaller breeds of birds. Fill it with your bird’s favourite treats, and their normal diet.

     

    Your bird will need to spin the maze by holding onto the opening and moving it around.

The maze fits together as 2 pieces and is held firmly by the bolt and washers attaching it, however it can be taken apart for easy cleaning.

    Medium Pipe Dream

    The Pipe Dream is a foraging toy of Kirsty’s own making. They are made in 3 different sizes to suit a range of parrots and the medium is best suited to Cockatiels to Indian Ringnecks.

     

    Your parrot just needs to lift the lid out of the way and reach their beak inside the pipe to retrieve their reward. You can mix seed/pellets with bird safe foraging substrate inside the toy or use larger items like nuts, beads or chunks of vegetables wrapped in paper. When first introducing this toy, you can use a piece of sticky tape to hold one lid open for your bird to learn where to find the food. After they have used it this way for a few days, you can remove the tape and let them pick the lid up themselves.

     

    The stainless steel chain running through the toy, helps to hold the lids a little more securely to add some difficulty. Pacifiers adorn the ends of the chain.

     

    The Pipe dream is made with bird safe, tough pvc and all hardware is stainless steel. There are acrylic beads and cardboard birdy bagels for your bird to play with too. At the top, there is an ‘o’ ring to attach your own hanging link to. There are 2 options for the type of lid you would like on this toy, for Cockatiels, small Conures, Quakers & most Lorikeets the plastic lid is suitable (first 2 images). For birds that like to destroy plastic, like larger Conures, Caiques, Indian Ringnecks then the tougher acrylic lid is best (last 2 images).

     

    For Budgies and Lovebirds, there is a small toy available and for Alexandrines to Macaws, the Large Pipe Dream is available and comes only with acrylic lids.
