The Ole' Senior toy by Bird Kabob is made with a really big stalk of yucca. It has much of the hard, outer stalk on the outside, but with holes cut out to get your bird started on the chewing joy that is yucca. It measures a total of 38cm long and the yucca log itself is 22cm long and 9cm in diameter.It does not come with a hanging link, which can be purchased separately. Yucca is a type of plant and these pieces of the dried stalk are extra enjoyable for your bird to chew. Also suitable for rodents who love to munch at the soft fibres too! As a natural item, each toy will vary slightly and may have areas of changed colour or texture. Yucca, also known as 'yukka'.
Much like a dumbbell, this light foot toy has 9 movable, coloured Vine Rings wrapped around the centre. It's great to shake, rattle and roll around! The multiple paddle pop sticks that make up the centre and crunchy vine rings are good for your parrot to chew. The Vine Ring Rattle measures 14cm long and 4cm wide. It is better suited to medium and large breeds of parrots but even the small guys can safely enjoy this toy in their foraging tray or bowl.
These Feather Weight 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 and the mini ones can be put inside many other foraging toys or hidden around the cage. The rings can be used as toy parts, hung from other toys, given as a foot toy or placed around your birds' perches. 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. Please note the videos also show the 'small and medium' ones in use. These sizes are currently unavailable, but the mini (single ball) and rings (5 balls in a loop) are available. Each ball is about 2cm in diameter and are available in blue, green, yellow, orange, pink, purple and red as pictured. A random selection of colours will be chosen for you unless otherwise requested.
Vine Balls are a great, versatile item. They can be used as a chewable foot toy, put food inside and use it within a foraging toy or even on its' own as a foraging foot toy! Lastly, they make a great toy part as you can thread them onto wire, chain or rope as part of a toy. Each vine ball is made from wound grape vine and is roughly 4cm in diameter, but do vary as they are natural products. Other vine ball sizes as well as coloured vine balls are also available in my store.

Corner shelves are a great way to utilise space that may be otherwise difficult to make fun! Pop this platform high up in your birds cage as a nice roosting spot or at another level, with foot toys as a play area for your parrot. It can also be handy to place this near to a bolt-on foraging toy to provide access to that level of the cage. Popular with able-bodied and handicapped birds, it provides a nice spot to 'chill out'. The bars and sides of the platform are powder-coated. It attaches to the cage with bolts and rectangular 'washers' and will fit most cage and aviary bars. See the last 4 photos for an example of the corner shelf set up in a small, travel cage that has horizontal bars on one side and vertical bars on the other. The bolt with the fixed wingnut head screws straight into the hole in the corner shelf, eliminating the need for loose parts on the inside and outside of the cage. The shelf has a large 'lip' on the curved edge. It is pictured with the lip facing downwards, however it can also be positioned the other way, with the lip facing up. This would hold small items like foot toys on the shelf (until your bird throws them over the edge). The straight edges of the powder coated shelf are 30cm, the ledge is 4cm tall and from the inner corner to the outer most edge (on the curve of the shelf) is 28cm. I also offer the option of adding a piece of woven seagrass mat onto the platform for a chewable, safe & comfy perching spot for your bird. Replacements can be purchased separately for once the mat gets chewed. I use seagrass mats from Bunnings, that I wash and then soak in F10 veterinary disinfectant. They are thoroughly sun dried then cut to size, using a few small zip ties to stop the cut ends from fraying. The seagrass mat is then attached to the Sundeck with a few more small zip ties.You can choose to make these seagrass covers yourself, however it's recommended to wash the mats well before use.
A simple foraging toy for parrots, 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 transparent 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 accommodate requests.

This toy is perfectly designed for feeding your bird 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!

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 tray also catches small pieces of food for your bird to come back to later. The Buffet Ball can be filled whilst on the hanging bar or completely removed and even used separately. All pieces come apart for easy cleaning and changing. The small ball attachment at the bottom is secured onto the pole by the threaded stainless steel inset into the ball.

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.Yucca, also known as 'yukka'.
