The Hanging Tilt-a-Wheel is a new design made by Caitec. Or should I say, a ‘re-invented’ design after the Cage-Mounted version was too difficult for most beaks. This ‘saucer’ is see through and has 2 openings in the top that your clever parrot can access their food from. Fill it with dry food, treats and foraging substrate (eg bird safe kitty litter) and watch as your bird spins, pushes and tilts the wheel to get to the reward.
The Tilt-a-Wheel measures 21cm wide and a total of 27cm tall, including the quick link that it hangs from. There is a short length of natural, sisal rope under the toy too.

Vetafarm South American Mix 350g0 out of 5$13.00
Great for use as a treat in dry food foraging toys for birds that eat plain pellets as their regular diet. This food is designed for South American Breeds of parrot as a base-diet, in conjunction with vegetables and fruits. I prefer to feed a plain pellet with lower energy and use these as treats as well as daily vegetables and fruit.
This variety comes in one size only but is the same as the ‘small’ in the Nutriblend range. Each pellet is slightly smaller than a green pea.
Rings of Fortune0 out of 5$34.10
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!).
Hemp Rope Climbing Net – XS0 out of 5$15.00
This great little climbing net is ideal for those smaller feet and beaks! Designed with Budgies, Lovebirds & Cockatiels in mind, the diameter of the rope pieces is 3-4mm. It is made from hemp which is a natural fibre that is a lot safer for your bird to nibble on than cotton or other ropes. It is actually small enough to fit reasonably within your birds cage, or can be set up as part of a play area out of the cage.
The net measures 40cm x 40cm and doesn’t come with hanging links. You can purchase these separately or hang around existing perches if you get creative.
Balsa Heaven5.00 out of 5$12.70 – $15.20
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.
Fantastic for Budgies, Lovebirds, Cockatiels, Conures and Quakers.
Large Bagel Swing0 out of 5$17.20
The Large Bagel Swing is just as the name suggests, a swing that is made from a large (20cm) birdy bagel. It is a great size for Cockatiels, Conures, Quakers, Lorikeets, Caiques, Indian Ringnecks, Mini-Macaws and Alexandrines. I hand-make this toy with a bagel that is 20cm in diameter, hanging from stainless steel wire with a small stainless steel quick link included.
There is a plastic pacifier, smaller birdy bagels an ‘ice chunk’ bead and a crunchy vine star for your bird to chew and explore too. All parts are safe for your bird to chew.
This toy measures 30cm tall and 20cm wide in total. The brown, layered part of the bagel is roughly 1.3cm wide, the coloured outside section is 2cm wide. The bagels come in a variety of colours which are chosen at random, unless you note your preference in the order comments.
Barrel of Fun0 out of 5$16.80
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.
Vetafarm Nutriblend Small 350g0 out of 5
Great for use as a treat in dry food foraging toys for birds that eat plain pellets as their regular diet. Also useful to use this coloured, flavoured pellet to convert your bird from a seed diet. Birds are more likely to take to this food when converting than they are to many of the plain pellets.
This pellet is the small size, larger than the mini. Each pellet is slightly smaller than a green pea.
These 2 packets are on special as their ‘best before’ date is July 2018.
Planet Pleasures Medium Tower0 out of 5$18.50
This is a colourful, versatile 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. This tower toy has lots of different woven ‘stars’ with nooks and crannies to hide food in and for beaks to explore. Coloured with bird-safe food dyes, it comes in a variety of colours.
Measures roughly 16cm wide, 4cm deep and 29cm tall, including the natural rope loop it hangs from, it doesn’t come with a hanging link which you can choose separately. This is for the medium size, I also stock the small and large sizes in my store.
Small Baffle Cage5.00 out of 5$38.00
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.
Corner Shelf – Powder Coated5.00 out of 5$47.00
Corner shelves are a great way to utilise space that may be otherwise difficult to make fun! 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.
The bars and sides of the platform are powder-coated. It attaches to the cage with a combination of bolts, washers and wingnuts and will fit most cage and aviary bars. You can line the platform with a seagrass mat, native bark or similar if you’d like a more natural feel.
