Foraging Wheel (First Generation)


There is a reason this original foraging wheel from Caitec is still around, it is great for feeding your birds’ dry food and treats and can be used by many breeds, including small parrots.


Fill with a mix of normal food or treats and a safe foraging substrate, to make the treats harder to get to. Your bird will need to turn the face of the wheel using the handle or the openings. This changes the position of the 2 openings and allows access to the 5 different compartments within the wheel. You can add chewable items to the mix for your bird to get their beak into. Mini and small Feather Weight Foot Toys fit well inside the compartments, as well as 2cm Vine Balls and small Yucca Pieces.
This toy is made from tough polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. It attaches to the side of the cage using the typical Creative Foraging Systems washer/screw provided which fits most cage and aviary bars.
The wheel is about 15cm in diameter and 3cm deep and best suits small and medium parrots and is not very suitable for Alexandrines due to their beak size. Check out the Generation II wheels for larger birds.

    Great foraging toy. My galah loves it and waits for it to be filled each morning. It keeps him occupied for the entire day and the 5 compartments add variety to what can be put in. The only problem I’ve come across is if the the items put in it are too small they will fall out of the wheel when the bird spins the front.

  2. Thanks Amba for the great feedback! As discussed in more detail by message, positioning the Wheel on the side of the cage, with a foraging tray or bowl/dish below it can help to make the pieces falling out be less of an issue. Once Wallie has mastered his new toy well, you can cut pieces of paper or cardboard to fit in each compartment to cover them. He will need to chew the paper/cardboard to access the mix below which will also prevent small items falling out the opening when the wheel is turned. Happy foraging! 🙂
