This toy is great for feeding your birds' dry food and treats. Fill the compartments with a foraging substrate to make the treats harder to get to.
The spinning carousel has 4 compartments with lids that open different ways. The whole toy spins on an axis and has perching areas in between for ease of use. A great way to make this toy even more interesting and add some challenge for your bird, is to use foraging foot toys inside the compartments. Items like Mini Feather Weights, 2cm Vine Balls and small Yucca Pieces work well in the Carousel. The Carousel toy is ideal for small parrots: Cockatiels to Indian Ringnecks. It is made from tough polycarbonate and is sturdy. However, due to the nature of one of the lids, it is possible for larger or destructive birds to remove the lid from the 'corner swivel lid' in particular. The toy can be used by (and is great for) Alexandrines, Galahs, Corellas, Cockatoos, Eclectus Parrots, African Greys etc however, please be aware that they MAY break this lid off. Smaller parrots generally don't do this.
This is a great, tricky foraging toy - hide treats, foot toys, pellets, fruit or vege chunks within this toy for your bird to get out.Your clever parrot will need to turn the 2 keys the correct amount and pull them out of the 'lock' to allow the lid of the toy to separate from the body of the toy. The key stays attached to the toy so it doesn't get lost and the lid and body of the toy are connected by a chain so it can open without parts going everywhere. Check out the videos of this toy in use! The Parrot's Treasure can be used by most breeds of parrots, however shouldn't be given to Conures, Quakers, Caiques, Lorikeets and Indian Ringnecks until they are experienced foragers as it can be a tricky toy. This toy comes in clear and in translucent yellow and what you receive will vary depending on what stock I receive from my supplier. Parrots are very clever, but won't automatically know how to use this toy. Be sure to introduce this toy to them at an easy level and gradually make it more difficult - show them how to use it, let them win!
The Snack Rack is a great foraging puzzle for parrots that has 2 main difficulty levels. Hide treats, toys, pellets, fruit or vege chunks within the Snack Rack for your bird to get out. Your bird will need to turn the outer pieces which rotate around the main body of the toy. Great for small parrots (eg Conures, Quakers, Lorikeets) that are experienced with other foraging designs, as well as for all medium and large breeds of parrots. Each of the 2 outer pieces has an indent which allows the piece to pass over the middle shelf which has a protruding piece. Start the toy at an easier level by having the treat at the top so your bird just needs to turn the pieces until one falls down to reveal the treat. For Alexandrines and larger parrots, you can later increase the difficulty by putting the treat in the bottom level and your bird will need to turn and LIFT the top level to get it over the shelf above it, before retrieving their reward. This can be seen in the videos below. Please note, this toy used to come in a translucent green colour, as you will see in the videos. It now comes as completely clear.Parrots are very clever, but won't automatically know how to use this toy. Be sure to introduce this toy to them at an easy level and gradually make it more difficult - show them how to use it, let them win!
This is a time consuming, fun toy for your parrot to work with, as well as being durable and sturdy! Fill the toy from the opening in the top then turn the top cover. Your clever parrot will need to spin each level to line up the openings so the reward falls to the treat opening at the bottom of the toy. The levels spin freely and your bird can watch their food move closer and closer until it reaches the opening. This toy is made from tough, polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. It comes in clear only though you may see the old, coloured version in some videos.
Measures 16cm tall and 8cm in diameter. The whole toy, hanging on chain is 39cm long and attaches to the cage with a quick link.The Rings of Fortune toy arrives from the manufacturer with a pear clip attaching the chain to the body of the toy. I find this unsafe as many medium and large parrots can undo these pear clips and have the potential to get their beak caught on it in play. Because of this I change the attachment to a stainless steel medium 'O' ring, provided by me and safely attached (closed, safe for beaks!).
This is a fun little puzzle toy for your parrot to explore and find treats in.
To use this foraging toy, your bird needs to turn the inner shaft of the toy using the forked handle at the front. The barrel can lock in either direction and only by turning the shaft to the central position, will it slide out to reveal the treat opening. This toy is made from tough, polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. The barrel itself is 4 x 7cm when closed and hangs from a chain with small quick link, totaling 28cm long.

Your bird will need to reach through the gaps in the bars to access their rewards. You could make this harder by wrapping everything inside the toy with paper for them to chew open or lining the baffle cage with cardboard once your parrot has mastered it. This toy is 100% stainless steel and measures 10 x 10cm across, while hanging just over 20cm tall from a chain with quick link attachment. It has a 1.8cm space between each of the bars.

A Mini Feather Weight foraging foot toy is pictured in use and can be purchased separately for small seeds to go inside. Or you can use a nut or smaller treat wrapped in paper as the treat or a 2cm Vine Ball (foraging foot toy) with food inside.
