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! 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! This toy is made from tough polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. This is a loose, individual toy. It can be hung from a skewer (various options shown below), hung by a large hanging loop or used as a foot toy for a very large parrot or placed in a foraging bowl.
The Buffet Ball is 9cm in diameter and each of the 12 slots (6 per half) is about 4cm long and 8-12mm wide. This is a versatile toy that suits most parrots.Also known as the 3" Party Ball. The 5" Party Ball is shown in the last image and also available in my store.
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. The large sized ladders have perches that are 20-25cm long and a diameter to suit large parrots. Please select from the available lengths. If you have other requests, please include them in the order notes and/or contact me first to discuss your requirements. I make a loop on each of the 4 ends, which you can then attach a pear clip or other hanging link to. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org is preferred.
The Creative Foraging Systems Box Feeder toy is great for feeding your birds' dry food and treats. Fill with a mix of food and bird safe foraging substrate to make the food harder to get to. Your bird will need to chew open the cardboard box to access the rewards inside! This starter pack comes with 10 refill boxes which come with a 'honeycomb divider' to separate the box into 8 compartments, prolonging the foraging enjoyment! Refill packs of 15 boxes can be purchased separately in my store. This toy is the larger of the 2 sizes (shown together in last images) and is made from tough polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. It comes in clear, as pictured and attaches to the side of the cage using a polycarbonate screw/washer that fits most cage and aviary bars. Be careful not to cross thread these when tightening them as the screw pieces will snap!
This is a chunky shreddable toy that your companion parrot will love! Made with natural, woven plant material, it truly is designed for beaks that love to chew! Made by Planet Pleasures who supply an awesome range of natural bird toys for your parrots' chewing pleasure! You can even turn this into a foraging toy for your bird by hiding favourite pieces of dry food in the many openings and hidey holes in the different weaves of this toy. Measures roughly 40cm long and 8cm in diameter. This toy doesn’t come with a hanging link which you can choose separately.
This is a high quality, sturdy foraging design that is great for all breeds of birds. Fill it with your bird's fruits and vegetables as well as foot toys, blocks of wood, pinecones and banksia pods.
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 15 x 15cm across, while hanging a total of 40cm tall from a chain with quick link attachment. The bars are 2cm apart.
This is a sturdy foraging toy designed for large and extra large birds. Your parrot will need to turn the wheel to access five separate food compartments which you can fill with foot toys, beads, nuts, 'foraging parcels' and other treats. You can fit foraging foot toys, such as the Flower Pot, Smarty Ring and up to medium Feather Weights within the compartments of this wheel. Using 4cm Vine Balls and Yucca Pieces is also a great foraging idea. Measures roughly 20cm in diameter and 5cm thick/deep. It screws onto cage at 2 points and fits most cage and aviary bars. For medium parrots, I suggest the smaller, 'Extra-Large' version of this wheel. They are all made from tough polycarbonate and are dishwasher safe.
This is a sturdy versatile foraging toy that is great for the most 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. You can also use Mini Feather Weights as foraging foot toys inside the maze. The maze itself is a sealed piece of acrylic and cannot be opened, it is tough and will stand up to the big beaks! The Large Maze measures 15cm in diameter and 3cm thick, it screws onto the side of the cage with the nut and bolt set, as well as 2 washers which fits all cage/aviary bars. The small is available in my store also.
The Hanging Tilt-a-Wheel is a new design made by Caitec. Or should I say, a 're-invented' design after the Cage-Mounted version was too difficult for most beaks. This 'saucer' is see through and has 2 openings in the top that your clever parrot can access their food from. Fill it with dry food, treats and foraging substrate (eg bird safe kitty litter) and watch as your bird spins, pushes and tilts the wheel to get to the reward. The Tilt-a-Wheel measures 21cm wide and a total of 27cm tall, including the quick link that it hangs from. There is a short length of natural, sisal rope under the toy too.
These colourful little tea cups are too cute to pass by! With different faces on each cup and a handle that can be held my many breeds of birds, they make a great foot toy. Train your bird to hold it with their foot while they 'drink' out of the cup for a reward. You can use them as a toy part or just hang the cups in your birds cage. Mini Feather Weight Foot Toys fit well within the cup, as do 2cm Vine Balls and many pellets and smaller nuts. There is a video in the tab below showing the cup in use. There is a gap in the handle, big enough for stainless steel 'o' rings and small rope to pass through to hang the cup or use it as a toy part.
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.
The cousin of the popular 'Buster Food Cube', the Buster Food Ball is a little bit easier of a toy to use - but not too easy! While the ball shape means it rolls around with more ease, it still has all the wonderful compartments inside the ball to slow the food down from exiting the toy. Your pet will need to roll this ball around with their paws and nose to get the food moving through the maze tracks inside, before it falls via the 2 openings in the central shaft. The inner shaft is removable for easy filling and cleaning. Lock it in and watch your dog work at their meal. Always introduce new foraging toys to your pet with supervision and guidance. The Buster Food Ball comes in 2 sizes, this is the small. While blue and red are both pictured, only red is available currently.
This has long been one of my favourite foraging toy designs - the Buster Food Cube is a great toy with a clever design. The cube has compartments inside which means food doesn't move around quite as freely as it would in a hollow item. Your pets' dry treats and/or kibble will move through the internal components, like navigating a maze to reach the exit. The inner shaft of the toy also has just round 2 openings within, making more of a challenge for your clever pooch to get their biscuits out. It is simple to fill and can fit a whole meal for your pet (though we recommend to spread their meal between a number of toys each day, to keep them engaged). To easily clean and fill the Buster Food cube the interior shaft of the toy, which is a different colour, can be removed. Once the toy has your pets' meal or some treats inside, simply twist the shaft to lock it into place. This toy is suitable for small dogs (under 10kg), cats, large parrots and rabbits. It comes in 4 great colours. For larger dogs, please see the larger sized cube. While the Buster Food Cube is made from hard plastic and not designed for chewing, the shape also makes it difficult for dogs to get their mouth around to pick up and chew.
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.
