A selection of my own Cockatiels’ favourite perching and chewing items, that I feel should be a part of every new birds’ set up. Raindrop is pictured in her favourite spot, on her Sundeck.

By purchasing this pack, you not only have the convenience of Raindrops’ recommendations all together, I will add the optional extras most popular with these toys. Options like the seagrass mat attached to the Sundeck and hanging links to the toys that don’t normally come with them, will come included.

The 20cm bolt on perch will vary in bark type with each pack, but will always be a native branch with some bark.

If certain items are out of stock from this pack, I may change the pack from time to time, to continue availability. Be sure to check the list of items included.

Sundeck Platform - Small

A handy, easy to use 'sundeck' platform for your bird to relax on. The arms hook onto the horizontal bars of the cage and the platform sits flat below it. These are versatile items that suit most cage designs. Pop this platform high up in your birds cage as a nice roosting spot or at another level, with foot toys as a play area for your parrot. It can also be handy to place this near to a bolt-on foraging toy to provide access to that level of the cage. Popular with all birds, these are great for handicapped parrots, with mobility or stability issues too.

The platform measures 20cm wide, 16cm deep and the arms are 10cm tall (the platform will sit 10cm below the horizontal bars that it hooks onto). They come with plain, coated bars which you can safely use as is or cover yourself with native bark or similar.

I also add a piece of woven seagrass mat onto the platform for a chewable, safe and comfy perching spot for your bird. Replacements can be purchased separately for once the mat gets chewed. I use seagrass mats from Bunnings, that I wash and then soak in F10 veterinary disinfectant. They are thoroughly sun dried then cut to size, using a few small zip ties to stop the cut ends from fraying. The seagrass mat is then attached to the Sundeck with a few more small zip ties. While this option normally has an extra cost when the Sundeck is purchased separately, it is included for this beginner pack.

Thin 20cm Bolt on Natural Branch Perch

These bolt on perches are a great addition to your birds' cage. They are easy to attach to the inside or outside of the cage and can also be used in aviaries. Each natural branch has been hand selected by me from safe, native trees and all have bark on them, so they're great for your parrot to chew as well as being good for their feet and beak. There is a mix of Paperbark, Bottle Brush, Wattle, Eucalypt and other native branches.
Each perch measures 20cm long and 1.5cm to 2.5cm in diameter.

Thin 20cm

Balsa Heaven

Balsa is a very soft timber that is satisfying to chew and is a favourite for many small parrots. I made this toy as a birthday present for Larry the female Cockatiel, who is owned by one of my wonderful customers. She is pictured with her toy and has chosen to name it 'Balsa Heaven'.

This toy incorporates long, thin slats of balsa, with some colourful beads and a small pacifier at the bottom, all threaded onto stainless steel wire. A loop is made at the top of the toy to attach a hanging link to. The toy measures roughly 17cm tall and 15cm wide and the balsa can be fanned out or laid flat depending on your cage set up. The colour/style of the pony beads can vary depending on availability.

Fantastic for Budgies, Lovebirds, Cockatiels, Conures and Quakers. This toy doesn't normally come with a hanging link, but I will attach a normal nickel plated one for you as part of this pack.

Small Timber Banana

The Small Banana is a toy made from soft pine that is coloured with food safe vegetable dyes. There are more coloured timber pieces hanging from soft plastic strands that hang from both sides of the toy. Great for small parrots (Budgies, Lovebirds, Cockatiels, Lorikeets, Conures and Quakers), these small timber toys also come in other fruit designs, like apples, grapes and oranges!

This toy includes a nickel plated chain and pear clip. The total height of the toy is 25cm, while the main body of it is 13cm high, 7cm wide and 6cm deep.

Vine Tweeter Totter

The popular Vine Tweeter Totter toy, made by Super Bird Creations, is a cute fun toy for the little ones. Your small parrot will enjoy exploring, chewing and preening at the shredded crinkly paper that explodes out of the 4cm vine ball, playing with the small vine rings that hang from the horizontal paddlepop bar, jingling the bell and turning the timber beads.

All parts are cotton free and colouring is food safe dye. It comes with nickel plated hardware, including a pear clip.

This toy measures 19cm tall (total, including pear clip and bell) and 13cm wide.

Planet Pleasures Small Fire Wheel (Bird Tire w/Star)

A great shreddable toy that your companion parrot will love! Made with natural, woven plant material, it truly is designed for beaks that love to chew and nibble. Made by Planet Pleasures who supply an awesome range of natural bird toys for your parrots' chewing pleasure!

Did you know that you can use these for foraging which helps to keep your bird entertained? Hide treats in the weaves and openings of the toy for your bird to pick out. There's lots of gaps in the weaves that will hold treats in this design, which makes the Fire Wheel the perfect foraging/chewing toy.
