    Food Tumbler

    Wow, in just 2 days of the website being open, this toy has sold out! More are expected to arrive mid-late August 2016.

    This is a new foraging design, the most recently released by Caitec and it can be done by nearly every type of bird. Fill it with your bird’s favourite treats and their normal diet then watch them spin the toy to work for their food.

     

    Your bird will need to spin the whole toy so that food falls into the shaft which has an opening for treat retrieval at the bottom. Your bird can grip and spin the toy from the opening in the shaft or along the wavy edges of the toy. The shaft is adjustable to increase the difficulty and on the hardest setting, it really takes a lot of work to get the food into the shaft. The photos show the toy in each difficulty setting which is secured by locking the shaft in place.

     

    This toy is made from tough, clear polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. It measures 16-19cm long (depending on how you have the shaft adjusted), 13cm wide and will sit 8cm deep from the cage bars. The treat retrieval opening is 13 x 36mm. It attaches by screwing onto the side of the cage with the polycarbonate attachment, common among this brand of toy.

    Push & Pull

    The Push and Pull is a foraging toy with a familiar concept, push and pull the levers back and forth to release food to the lower level.

     

    Your clever parrot will need to shake and move the levers on each of the levels to get their reward to the opening at the bottom of the toy. The treat retrieval area can be accessed from 2 sides which makes it suitable for sharing too. The toy is filled from the top after twisting the lid off. By filling this toy with a bird-safe foraging substrate, you can make the Push & Pull more difficult for a more experienced forager. This one is a favourite of my Quaker pair, Marnie & Elle!

     

    The body of the toy measures 18cm tall, 11cm wide (including the levers) and hangs a total of 35cm from a chain and pear clip.

    Hanging Sphere

    This toy is perfectly designed for feeding your small parrot their 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 Hanging Sphere is 8cm in diameter, 21cm long in total and is made from tough polycarbonate. It is best suited to birds with smaller beaks, for Indian Ringnecks and larger, the Buffet Ball is better suited.

    Space Circles

    This rolley polley toy is great for feeding your bird dry food and treats. Your clever parrot will need to push and tilt or shake the toy to get to their reward.

     

    The 'Space Circles' is a figure 8 shape and hangs from the centre of the '8'. When hanging, the toy sits so the treat is at the lower end and your bird will need to push the higher end down and also move it side to side to work the reward through the track, to the opening. You can fill it with bird safe foraging substrate to make the treats harder to get to or use a foraging foot toy like a 2cm Vine Ball or Mini Feather Weight. The Space Circles makes a delightful rattling sound as your bird shakes it, due to the beads sealed inside the protruding arms of the toy which your bird can use as a handle.

     

    This toy is made from tough polycarbonate and will stand up to even the the rougher beaks. It hangs 23cm long on a small quick link and chain, it is 16cm across the '8' and 2.5cm thick.

Fill it with your bird’s favourite treats, and their normal diet, mixed with bird safe foraging substrate. You can use Mini Feather Weight Foot toys, vine balls and other items in this toy as well as treats. The photos show the toy with these items in use. It comes brand new and empty.

     

    Your bird will need to lift the light, plastic lid and reach their head into the cup to access their reward. The cups and lids move around freely on a long length of nickel plated chain.

Then change to no tape, with the lids sitting loosely once your parrot knows that they can get the food with the lid lifted. You can even start sticky taping the lids closed once your parrot is really good at this toy! They will need to chew through the tape to open the lid! (avian vet recommended/safe).

    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.

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.

    DISCONTINUED Feather Weight Foot Toy (Various Sizes)

    LAST ONES LEFT!     These products have sadly been discontinued by the manufacturer. I only have a few ‘rings’ and lots of mini left now. No small or medium I’m sorry.

     

    These Featherweight foot toys are so versatile! You can use them for foraging as you can hide food in the ridges of each ‘bobble’ for your bird to dig out. They can be given as a foot toy, put inside many other foraging toys or hidden around the cage. The rings can also placed over perches to spin or strung on the chain/rope of many other toys. Because they are made as kids toys, with non-toxic plastic, they are as safe as possible for your bird to chew.

     

    I use these daily for my own birds, hiding seeds and small pellets in the ridges and using them through the foraging toys in their cages. Take a look at all the videos in the tab below of the various foot toys in use.

    Each ball or bobble is about 2cm in diameter and the different sizes are connected as per the images. The ring measures 9cm in total diameter.
    They are available in blue, green, yellow, orange, pink and red as pictured and random colours will be chosen for you unless otherwise requested.
