    Flower Pot Foot Toy

    This wooden flower pot can hold small treats or beads for the extra clever foragers out there.

     

    A stiff vegetable tanned leather flower is held in place over the top of the flower pot by a stainless steel wing nut wound onto a stainless steel bolt. Your bird must undo the wing nut to remove the vegetable tanned leather flower and get inside to the treat! We recommend using dry food only for this foraging toy.

     

    Measures 6cm long and 4.5cm wide and is suitable for medium to large parrots, though smaller breeds could use this toy if it were mounted on the cage bars or placed in a bowl.

    Shower Perch

    Shower Perch

    This shower perch made by ‘Super Bird’ is ideal for taking your parrot into the shower or as a perch against the mirror or window with a view. It holds securely to glass or tile surfaces with 3 suction cups and folds away easily for when not in use. It comes in white/blue as pictured, the blue section is covered in grippy sandpaper so it doesn’t get slippery once wet.

     

    The perch measures 18cm tall (height of the vertical pipe along the wall), 26cm wide (width of horizontal pipe along the wall) and the perching part comes out 28cm from the wall, with a perchable length of 25cm. Great size for small to medium birds, like Budgies through to Alexandrines. It can also be used for larger birds, like Galahs, Corellas and African Greys with a little less room to move around. My 360g Corella regularly uses this perch and dances, putting extra pressure on the suction cups with no issues.
    Suitable for glass and smooth tiles but won’t hold on textured tiles, gaps with grout or on standard plasterboard/painted walls.

    Tug n Slide Tower

    Tug n Slide Tower

    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 toy is made from tough, clear and blue polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks.

    Turn ‘n Learn Logs

    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.

    Parrot's Treasure Chest

    Parrot’s Treasure Chest

    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!

    Snack Rack

    Snack Rack

    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!

    Rings of Fortune

    Rings of Fortune

    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 toy is made from tough, polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. The barrel itself is 4 x 7cm when closed and hangs from a chain with small quick link, totaling 28cm long.

    Your bird will need to reach through the gaps in the bars to access their rewards. You could make this harder by wrapping everything inside the toy with paper for them to chew open or lining the baffle cage with cardboard once your parrot has mastered it.

     

    This toy is 100% stainless steel and measures 10 x 10cm across, while hanging just over 20cm tall from a chain with quick link attachment. It has a 1.8cm space between each of the bars.

    The toy measures roughly 40cm tall (including chain and link) and 35cm wide.

    These natural toys are handmade and the seed pods are seasonally available. Therefore, every toy does differ  and may have a variety of sizes of seed pod (instead of 6 large Pincones, it might have 8 smaller ones for example). Not all items will include Banksia pieces and I generally try to use items to suit your birds’ breed. Be sure to fill out this section in your order notes so I know who I’m making for!

    Various Yucca Pieces (5)

    Various Yucca Pieces (5)

    A selection of 5 various 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.

     

    As a natural item, the pieces do vary and a fair selection will be chosen for you.

     

    The last photo is an example of how food can be stuck in the yucca. This is a different size/style of Yucca to the item – see “5 Yucca Slices” for this style of Yucca piece.
