The 3 Cup Foraging Toy is the well made, but cheaper copy of a very popular foraging toy that I have stocked for many years (The Bottom’s Up). It is great for the smaller breeds of birds. It is easy to teach your bird to use and can also be made more difficult. Fill it with your bird’s favourite treats, and their normal diet, mixed with bird safe foraging substrate. You can use Mini Feather Weight Foot toys, vine balls and other items in this toy as well as treats.
Your bird will need to lift the light, plastic lid of the 3 Cup Foraging Toy and reach their head into the cup to access their reward. The cups and lids move around freely on a long length of nickel plated chain. While your bird is learning to use the toy, you can sticky tape the lids open or partially open to make it easier for them. Then change to no tape, with the lids sitting loosely once your parrot knows that they can get the food with the lid lifted. You can even start sticky taping the lids closed once your parrot is really good at this toy! They will need to chew through the tape to open the lid! (avian vet recommended/safe).
The height of the cup is slightly less than that of the Bottom’s Up, at 4.5cm instead of 5.5cm (see the pictures), but functions in the same way, including with the foot toys inside. The whole toy measures roughly 47cm long (including pear clip and bell) and 7cm wide. All hardware is nickel plated, though I can upgrade it to stainless steel hardware with the parts that I sell. There are now multiple options to select from if you’d like the hardware upgraded. Please see the last photo for examples also.
