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.
A Christmas themed natural chew, full of crunchy Pinecones for your medium to large parrot.This toy is handmade with Pinecones that have been cleaned and dried safely before use. There is also pine slats, vine balls, vine rings, a yucca chunk and a vine star for your lucky bird to enjoy in the holiday spirit. Coloured items are dyed with food-safe colours and items are threaded onto 85cm of stainless steel wire. Each end is looped over and attached to the other end to make the wreath shape. The toy hangs from a stainless steel chain and 'o' ring. A hanging link of your choice can be purchased if required. The toy measures roughly 40cm tall (including chain and link) and 35cm wide.These natural toys are handmade and the seed pods are seasonally available. Therefore, every toy does differ and may have a variety of sizes of seed pod (instead of 6 large Pincones, it might have 8 smaller ones for example). Not all items will include Banksia pieces and I generally try to use items to suit your birds' breed. Be sure to fill out this section in your order notes so I know who I'm making for!
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 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 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. Suits most breeds of birds or mixed cages but is designed for medium parrots. 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.
