A selection of 5 pieces of Yucca. Yucca is a type of plant and these pieces of dried plant stalk are bird safe, soft and chewable. Parrots, small and large love munching on the soft, fibrous natural material. It's great to give as a foot toy or thread onto other toys. You can poke a hole with skewer, wire or scissors and hang it in your birds' cage. By making small holes in the Yucca and pushing dry food treats into it, you can make this a foraging foot toy also. 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'.
This is the absolute safest type of toy hanging link available here. The large quick link is 100% stainless steel, including the clasp which is hexagonal in shape so can be easily tightened with pliers for those parrots that like to un-do clips. Always use quick links, tightened with pliers, for large or destructive parrots. Many toys come with the smaller pear clips attached. You can replace them with stainless steel quick links. Also check your purchases as certain toys and ranges like Planet Pleasures and my own natural toys don't come with links so you can choose your own. The Quick Links measure 4cm long, 1.7cm wide and the opening is 6mm. Stainless steel grade 316.
Pinecones are great for your bird to chew. You can also hide treats inside them. These Pinecones have been briefly soaked in a solution of F10 veterinary disinfectant and lightly scrubbed to remove any debris, before being dried in the sun. You can also select to have holes drilled in them to thread them onto wire or a skewer yourself. These will be roughly 4.5mm holes that will suit most small skewers. Large skewers and ropes are generally unsuitable for Pinecones as I'm not able to drill larger holes in them without breaking the core. They are packed into a box with shredded paper, or into paper bags within the box for posting.
Plastic 'C' links are handy links for small parrot owners. You can make these into a chain or use them to attach bird toys to cage bars or make your own creations.Ensure you also purchase 'straw beads' to close the 'C' link as shown. This is important to keep your bird safe from getting their beak or other parts caught in the opening.
Stainless steel 'O' Rings which can be opened with pliers to use for toy making. Ensure you close the gap on these securely to keep your parrots' beak and claws safe from catching.Come in small, medium and large. All sizes are shown in second image.
A standard sized, small pear clip that is 100% stainless steel, including the clasp. It is the safest metal for use with our parrots and the design is safe with any small parrots that don't un-do the clasps. Always use quick links, tightened with pliers, for large parrots or those that can un-do these clips. Many toys come with links attached in the nickel plated variety. You can replace them with stainless steel links. Also check your purchases as certain toys and ranges like Planet Pleasures and my own natural toys don't come with links so you can choose your own.
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 2cm in diameter, but do vary as they are natural products. Larger vine balls are also available in my store.
