The Smarty Ring is a foraging foot toy made out of hard timber. Each coloured dot is removeable and has a 'well' underneath that you can hide small treats in for your bird to retrieve. The toy comes with a coloured plastic bead under each dot which can be removed or left in if your bird likes beads. Put small pieces of nuts, flavoured pellets or a sunflower seed under the dot and teach your parrot to remove the dot to find the reward. This toy is also available in my store in a hanging, slim version which is better for smaller birds. It is called the 'Smarty Stick'. The toy often comes with the dots quite well hammered in at first, please let me know if you'd like my assistance removing them for the first time or if your parrot would prefer to dig them out themselves!
This is a big, sturdy foraging toy that is great for the larger breeds of birds. Put your birds' favourite treats, beads or normal food in this toy for your bird to work for. The Mini Feather Weight Foraging Foot Toys also fit well in the Tug n Slide. Your bird will need to grasp the handle of the slider plate and move it back and forth for the reward to move between the 3 levels inside the toy. Then, when it's in the bottom chamber, they need to pull the leather strap at the bottom of the toy to move the platform down and allow the reward to fall into the retrieval tray. This toy is made from tough polycarbonate and is dishwasher safe. The toy itself is measures 28cm long and 13 x 11cm wide and deep (includes width of slide plate). Including the chain and leather strap, it is 60cm long and attaches to cage with large, stainless steel quick link.There is also the option for me to replace the leather strap with a stainless steel 'o' ring connected to a regular pacifier for you bird to pull on instead, as most birds will chew up or untie the leather very quickly.
This is well designed, different foraging toy, that suits the medium to large birds well. Hide treats, beads and normal diet/pellets within the cones of this toy to entice your parrot. The Mini Feather Weight Foot Toys and 2cm Vine Balls fit in this toy also. Your bird will need to move the cones around the circle, up to the top, where an opening allows the reward to slide out of the cone, into the retrieval tray in the middle of the circle. Extra/replacement cones are also available so you can add more as your bird becomes more experienced. This toy is made from tough, clear and blue polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks.Measures 22 x 25cm. Attaches to cage with the 2 large, polycarbonate washer/screws that fits onto most cage and aviary bars. For Indian Ringnecks and smaller parrots, the smaller Mastermind Heart is more appropriately sized.

The spinning carousel has 4 compartments with lids that open different ways. The whole toy spins on an axis and has perching areas in between for ease of use. A great way to make this toy even more interesting and add some challenge for your bird, is to use foraging foot toys inside the compartments. Items like Mini Feather Weights, 2cm Vine Balls and small Yucca Pieces work well in the Carousel. The Carousel toy is ideal for small parrots: Cockatiels to Indian Ringnecks. It is made from tough polycarbonate and is sturdy. However, due to the nature of one of the lids, it is possible for larger or destructive birds to remove the lid from the 'corner swivel lid' in particular. The toy can be used by (and is great for) Alexandrines, Galahs, Corellas, Cockatoos, Eclectus Parrots, African Greys etc however, please be aware that they MAY break this lid off. Smaller parrots generally don't do this.
The Turn n Learn Logs is a great foraging toy that can be a challenge even for the smartest of parrots. It's a very time consuming toy and requires some patience and skill. Your bird will need to unscrew each of the opaque, blue logs to access the compartment in the bottom of each log, where treats, toys and beads can be hidden. Mini Feather Weight Foot Toys and 2cm Vine Balls fit well within the compartments as foraging items. Birds will generally use their beaks to chew the logs in the opposite direction to each other in order to open it, but some larger parrots may use their feet to hold the lower log too.
Each log is rougly 5.5cm in diameter and hangs just over 30cm long when screwed shut and 55cm long when unscrewed. It attaches to the cage with a quick link.
This is a great, tricky foraging toy - hide treats, foot toys, pellets, fruit or vege chunks within this toy for your bird to get out.Your clever parrot will need to turn the 2 keys the correct amount and pull them out of the 'lock' to allow the lid of the toy to separate from the body of the toy. The key stays attached to the toy so it doesn't get lost and the lid and body of the toy are connected by a chain so it can open without parts going everywhere. Check out the videos of this toy in use! The Parrot's Treasure can be used by most breeds of parrots, however shouldn't be given to Conures, Quakers, Caiques, Lorikeets and Indian Ringnecks until they are experienced foragers as it can be a tricky toy. This toy comes in clear and in translucent yellow and what you receive will vary depending on what stock I receive from my supplier. Parrots are very clever, but won't automatically know how to use this toy. Be sure to introduce this toy to them at an easy level and gradually make it more difficult - show them how to use it, let them win!
The Snack Rack is a great foraging puzzle for parrots that has 2 main difficulty levels. Hide treats, toys, pellets, fruit or vege chunks within the Snack Rack for your bird to get out. Your bird will need to turn the outer pieces which rotate around the main body of the toy. Great for small parrots (eg Conures, Quakers, Lorikeets) that are experienced with other foraging designs, as well as for all medium and large breeds of parrots. Each of the 2 outer pieces has an indent which allows the piece to pass over the middle shelf which has a protruding piece. Start the toy at an easier level by having the treat at the top so your bird just needs to turn the pieces until one falls down to reveal the treat. For Alexandrines and larger parrots, you can later increase the difficulty by putting the treat in the bottom level and your bird will need to turn and LIFT the top level to get it over the shelf above it, before retrieving their reward. This can be seen in the videos below. Please note, this toy used to come in a translucent green colour, as you will see in the videos. It now comes as completely clear.Parrots are very clever, but won't automatically know how to use this toy. Be sure to introduce this toy to them at an easy level and gradually make it more difficult - show them how to use it, let them win!
This is a time consuming, fun toy for your parrot to work with, as well as being durable and sturdy! Fill the toy from the opening in the top then turn the top cover. Your clever parrot will need to spin each level to line up the openings so the reward falls to the treat opening at the bottom of the toy. The levels spin freely and your bird can watch their food move closer and closer until it reaches the opening. This toy is made from tough, polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. It comes in clear only though you may see the old, coloured version in some videos.
Measures 16cm tall and 8cm in diameter. The whole toy, hanging on chain is 39cm long and attaches to the cage with a quick link.The Rings of Fortune toy arrives from the manufacturer with a pear clip attaching the chain to the body of the toy. I find this unsafe as many medium and large parrots can undo these pear clips and have the potential to get their beak caught on it in play. Because of this I change the attachment to a stainless steel medium 'O' ring, provided by me and safely attached (closed, safe for beaks!).
This is a fun little puzzle toy for your parrot to explore and find treats in.
