    0 out of 5

    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.

    Birdy Vine Ball Lollipop

    5.00 out of 5

    Birdy Vine Ball Lollipop

    A cute little foot toy that is fun to chew. This toy is handmade by me, with a rolled paper stick and a 2cm vine ball, both are coloured with food safe dyes. There is a butterfly or star bead at the top of the toy and pony bead at the bottom, to hold the vine ball in place. While the beads are fixed, the vine ball can move around a bit.

     

    This toy is great for a foraging treat too, put a dry treat inside the vine ball for your bird to retrieve. They are quite light which makes them suitable for small parrots. I hand make these in a variety of colours, using both star beads and butterfly beads at the top. A random colour will be chosen for you, though you can request preferences in your order notes.
    Christmas is close! I’m now also making these in Christmas themed colours!

    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.

    Holy Gumballs

    Holy Gumballs! Is a small to medium sized toy with lots of fun things happening! There’s so many colours and textures for your bird to explore and so many places you could hide food treats to encourage foraging behaviour too. With lots of rolled paper sticks poking out of the piece of timber in the middle (these are all coloured with food safe dyes), plastic flowers, wiffle balls, a nickel-plated bell and 2 mini ‘Feather Weight Stars’, Holy Gumballs will satisfy the tactile and visual needs of your bird.

     

    To add a foraging component, you can wedge thin treats like hulled oats or slivered almond pieces in the mini Feather Weight Stars, you can put dry treats inside the wiffle ball or stick pieces of paper straws in the holes (the paper straws can have treats inside too!) and you can even wedge pieces of food into the rolled paper sticks for your bird to retrieve. The last 2 photos show examples of this.

     

    This toy measures roughly 24cm long (including pear clip and bell) and 17cm wide, it suits most small to medium parrots.

    Smiley Maraca

    Smiley Maraca

    These are super cute little maraca rattles that are great as a foot toy for an inquisitive parrot. There are small beads inside that clatter and rattle around making a pleasing sound for your bird. They can also be threaded onto wire or a very small ‘O’ ring through the roughly 2mm hole in the tip of the handle and used as a toy part.

     

    Each maraca measures about 7cm long and 2.5cm in diameter and the widest point. Colours are as displayed (purple, blue, pink, green and yellow) and a random selection will be chosen for you.
    The plastic isn’t sturdy enough to withstand the chewing of larger parrots but they make good foot toys with supervision and are great additions to the cage for non-destructive birds.

    Balsa is a very soft timber that is satisfying to chew and is a favourite for many small parrots. I made this toy as a birthday present for Larry the female Cockatiel, who is owned by one of my wonderful customers. She is pictured with her toy and has chosen to name it ‘Balsa Heaven’.

    Nuts About Casuarina

    Nuts About Casuarina

    A 20cm long, natural chew for small parrots. One of the original “Kirsty’s Natural Bird Toys”, this toy is handmade with Australian native seed pods and other natural parts like yucca, threaded onto stainless steel wire. A loop is made at the top of the toy to attach a hanging link to.

     

    You can add an element of foraging to your birds’ environment by hiding millet, pellets or other treats in the small openings in the dry seed pods, as shown in the last 2 pictures as an example.

     

    These natural toys are handmade and the seed pods are seasonally available. Therefore, every toy does differ and contains a mix of dry/open and green/closed seed pods. Please contact me before purchase if you have specific wishes or want to check availability of certain seed pods.

    Natural Budgie Ladder - 25cm

    5.00 out of 5

    Natural Budgie Ladder – 25cm

    Natural ladders that are handmade, for each order.

    Each rung of the ladder will be a piece of branch from a native tree, with lots of bark for your small birds’ feet and nails. Ladder rungs are roughly 7cm across and an appropriate thickness for a Budgie. Lining the side is a seasonal mix of Australian Gumnuts, Casuarina and Liquid Amber pods plus native branch pieces, balsa bricks, vine balls/rings, birdy bagels, yucca pieces, woven leaf shredding strips and finger trap pieces, threaded onto stainless steel wire.

     

    I make a loop on each of the 4 ends. You can then attach a pear clip or other hanging link to each end.

     

    These natural toys are handmade and the seed pods are seasonally available. Therefore, every toy does differ and contains a mix of dry/open and green/closed seed pods. Please contact me before purchase if you have specific wishes or want to check availability of certain seed pods.

     

    These ladders do take a bit of time for me to make and I do this in addition to my job as a vet nurse. I also prefer to use fresh seed pods that I collect once I have an order, so please allow up to 1 – 2 weeks for your order to be made (though some can be made in a matter of days). Feel free to contact me before placing an order to check availability.

    Contact via my Facebook Page or email to contact@animalenrichmentaustralia.com is preferred.
