  • Nuts About Casuarina

    5.00 out of 5

    A 25cm 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 example pictures.

     

    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.

  • Medium Pipe Dream

    5.00 out of 5

    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.

  • Hanging Box Feeder

    0 out of 5

    The Creative Foraging Systems Hanging Box Feeder toy is great for feeding your birds’ dry food and treats. Fill with bird safe foraging substrate to make the food harder to get to and more time consuming for your bird.

     

    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.

     

    This toy is made from clear polycarbonate and hangs on a short chain with pear clip to attach it to your birds’ cage.

    0 out of 5

    This perch, made by Paradise Toys, is made with bird-safe sisal rope and stainless steel hardware. The strong wire that the rope is twisted around, means you can bend and manipulate this perch to shape it around your parrots’ cage. Have it zig zagging across the cage, looping over other perches or attached in a ‘U’ shape for your birds’ sleep perch.

     

    The 2cm rope diameter is suitable for small parrots from Budgies to Indian Ringnecks. It attaches to the cage at each end with a stainless steel bolt and wing nut set, with large diameter washers in between. Fits most cage and aviary bars. The rope section of this perch is 60cm long, making the total length closer to 66cm including the pvc parts and bolt.

  • Balsa Heaven

    5.00 out of 5

    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’.

     

    This toy incorporates long, thin slats of balsa, with some colourful beads and a small pacifier at the bottom, all threaded onto stainless steel wire. A loop is made at the top of the toy to attach a hanging link to. The toy measures roughly 17cm tall and 15cm wide and the balsa can be fanned out or laid flat depending on your cage set up.

     

    Fantastic for Budgies, Lovebirds, Cockatiels, Conures and Quakers.

    The Paper Party Toy can be attached from the top of the cage (similar to the Squidalicious toys) but is best used horizontally from the side of the cage where it then becomes a perch as well as a toy.

     

    Measures roughly 11 x 4cm and fans out to about 4cm at the end. Attaches to cage bars with a small stainless steel bolt/washer/wingnut set. Colours do vary and will be chosen at random.

  • Large Bagel Swing

    0 out of 5

    The Large Bagel Swing is just as the name suggests, a swing that is made from a large (20cm) birdy bagel. It is a great size for Cockatiels, Conures, Quakers, Lorikeets, Caiques, Indian Ringnecks, Mini-Macaws and Alexandrines. I hand-make this toy with a bagel that is 20cm in diameter, hanging from stainless steel wire with a small stainless steel quick link included.

  • Hemp Rope Climbing Net – XS

    0 out of 5

    This great little climbing net is ideal for those smaller feet and beaks! Designed with Budgies, Lovebirds & Cockatiels in mind, the diameter of the rope pieces is 3-4mm. It is made from hemp which is a natural fibre that is a lot safer for your bird to nibble on than cotton or other ropes. It is actually small enough to fit reasonably within your birds cage, or can be set up as part of a play area out of the cage.

     

    The net measures 40cm x 40cm and doesn’t come with hanging links. You can purchase these separately or hang around existing perches if you get creative.

  • Custom Natural Ladder (various sizes)

    5.00 out of 5

    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.

  • Foraging Windmill/Paddle Wheel

    4.67 out of 5

    This is a very smart and well designed foraging toy for experienced foragers and is suitable for most small breeds of birds, as well as medium ones.

    Fill the top compartment with pellets/seeds/pieces of nut treats and some foraging substrate. Your bird will need to turn both the wheel at the top and then the wheel at the bottom of the toy. This spins the paddles, moving the food from level to level until it falls into the tray below for your bird to retrieve.

     

    The windmill is made from tough polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. *Note – the toy does have a small (stainless steel) wing nut that holds the lid of this toy on. This wingnut does spin with the bottom wheel so it would be tricky for most birds to unscrew without help. If this is an issue for your bird, avoid this toy or outsmart them by placing it only a cm from the ceiling of the cage, so they can turn the wheel but not access the screw!

     

    Measures roughly 23cm tall an 9cm in diameter. Screws onto the side of the cage with 2 of the polycarbonate washer/screws and fits most cage and aviary bars.

    $38.00
  • Foraging Wheel (First Generation)

    4.00 out of 5

    There is a reason this original foraging wheel from Caitec is still around, it is great for feeding your birds’ dry food and treats and can be used by many breeds, including small parrots.

     

    Fill with a mix of normal food or treats and a safe foraging substrate, to make the treats harder to get to. Your bird will need to turn the face of the wheel using the handle or the openings. This changes the position of the 2 openings and allows access to the 5 different compartments within the wheel. You can add chewable items to the mix for your bird to get their beak into. Mini and small Feather Weight Foot Toys fit well inside the compartments, as well as 2cm Vine Balls and small Yucca Pieces.
    This toy is made from tough polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. It attaches to the side of the cage using the typical Creative Foraging Systems washer/screw provided which fits most cage and aviary bars.
    The wheel is about 15cm in diameter and 3cm deep and best suits small and medium parrots and is not very suitable for Alexandrines due to their beak size. Check out the Generation II wheels for larger birds.

  • Small Acrylic Maze

    0 out of 5

    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.

  • Bird Kabob Pack of 20 Yucca Pieces (20)

    0 out of 5

    A bag of approx 20 yucca slices in discs, halves and quarters.

    Yucca is a type of plant and these pieces of dried plant root are bird safe, soft and chewable. Great to give as a foot toy or thread onto other toys. By making small holes in the Yucca fibres and pushing dry food treats into it, you can make this a foraging foot toy also. The last photo is an example of how food can be stuck in the yucca.

    As a natural item, the colour of the pieces do vary and there are some small holes or gaps in some pieces.
