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.

    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 wheel spins freely and your bird can watch their food move from shelf to shelf until it reaches the opening. By adding bird safe foraging substrate, you can increase the difficulty of this maze once your bird is experienced at it. 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.

     

    This toy is made from tough, clear and coloured acrylic and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. It is the small version of this toy, a large is also available and both are pictured in the last image.  The small measures 10cm in diameter and roughly 3cm thick/deep. Screws onto the side of the cage with the nut and bolt set, as well as 2 washers. Fits all cage/aviary bars.

    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). The acrylic discs are all clear, coloured ones are not currently available.

     

    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.

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!

    Your can introduce this to your bird at an easy level, without any covering at first. Once they know there’s food in the toy, you can start covering it with the sleeves provided for them to work more for their food. Your clever parrot will need to chew open the cardboard box to access the rewards inside! The cardboard sleeves come with various perforated openings that you can remove as ‘windows’ to the food inside, another great way to adjust the difficulty as your bird learns. The Hanging Box Feeder comes with 2 sleeves in the pack already and refill packs of 5 sleeves can be purchased separately.

    Custom Natural Ladder (various sizes)

    Natural ladders that are handmade, custom for each order.

    Each rung of the ladder will be a piece of branch from a native tree, with lots of bark for your parrots’ feet and nails. 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. Even the occasional small Pinecone or Banksia cone is added to the ladders.

     

    Please select from the options to customise your ladder. If you have other requests, please include them in the order notes and/or contact me first to discuss your requirements. I typically make a loop on each of the 4 ends. You can then attach a pear clip or other hanging link to each end (hanging links purchased separately and available on this site). I can put alternative ends on the ladder like a hook shape, though please be careful to assess how the hook sits in your birds’ area to ensure it is safe. See the last couple of photos which show these options.

     

    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 may be made in a matter of days too). 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.
