A collection of toys that I have selected as suitable for Cockatiels. You can also see this playlist of my Cockatiels in action with their foraging toys: HERE

  • Birdy Vine Ball Lollipop

    0 out of 5

    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 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.

  • JW Tip & Treat

    0 out of 5

    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.

  • Birdy Bagel Firecracker

    5.00 out of 5

    The new Birdy Bagel Firecracker is a toy handmade by me to meet your small parrots’ chewing and preening desires! With a 10cm birdy bagel as the base, a dozen finger traps each held on with a birdy bagel bite and with shredded crinkly paper stuffed in the end of each bagel, it’s got plenty to chew!

     

    The toy measures 20cm wide and 25cm tall. It is fantastic for Budgies through to Indian Ringnecks. It hangs from a stainless steel chain and comes with a hanging link, though you can choose if you’d like a nickel plated or stainless steel one. Triangle link at the base is nickel plated as I cannot source stainless steel ones.

  • Holy Gumballs

    0 out of 5

    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.

  • Cane Basket Forager

    0 out of 5

    Apologies, this product is out of stock while I wait for resupply of safe cane baskets for the base.

    The new Cane Basket Forager is a toy handmade by me! An easy toy to introduce to your small parrot who is beginning to forage. Partially fill the basket with some bird-safe foraging substrate and sprinkle some pellets, millet or other treat on top then watch your bird swinging in the basket while retrieving their goodies. You can also put foraging surprises in the large 8cm vine ball at the top.

     

    The toy measures 20cm wide and 25cm tall. It is fantastic for Budgies through to Indian Ringnecks. It hangs from 3mm plastic chain and a stainless steel wire and comes with a hanging link, though you can choose if you’d like a nickel plated or stainless steel one. All plastic ‘C’ links are closed off with a straw bead for safety. This toy isn’t suitable for large parrots or those who particularly like to chew through plastic.

  • Hide n Seek Refill

    0 out of 5

    A fun pack of safe, shreddable items for your bird to enjoy!

The pack comes with a decent handful of timber cubes in a variety of natural and coloured, 2 x vine balls measuring roughly 3 to 4cm in diameter that are normally natural/uncoloured (but sometimes come coloured) and a lovely mix of raffia rope pieces, which are fantastic for preening.

  • Hide-a-Treat Forager (2 Sizes)

    5.00 out of 5

    A simple foraging toy for parrots, newly released from ‘Sweet Feet & Beak’ in a transparent design. Your bird will see the food inside the 3 separate compartments inside and needs to lift the lid to access the goodies.

     

    Available in 2 sizes to suit a wide variety of breeds. I suggest the small for Cockatiels to Indian Ringnecks and the large for Alexandrines to Macaws. It comes in 3 colours: purple, green and blue. A colour will be chosen at random, though you are welcome to request your colour preferences in order notes. I will do my best to accomodate requests.

  • 5 Yucca Slices

    0 out of 5

    A selection of 5 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.

     

    You will receive a pack of 5 pieces, as pictured – 2 discs, 2 quarter pieces and a half piece. The half is from a larger disc so is a decent size and all slices are roughly 2cm thick. These can all be cut to smaller pieces easily with a stanley blade so can make more than 5 pieces. As a natural item, the pieces do vary and can have ‘imperfections’ and areas of different colours.

     

    These yucca slices have come from the ‘Bird Kabob’ 20 pack (shown below), which I have opened and divided into even packs of 5 pieces each for those wanting to try a smaller amount.

    The last photo is an example of how food can be stuck in the yucca.
