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.

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!).
Mastermind Circle0 out of 5$48.80
This is well designed, different foraging toy, that suits the medium to large birds well. Hide treats, beads and normal diet/pellets within the cones of this toy to entice your parrot. The Mini Feather Weight Foot Toys and 2cm Vine Balls fit in this toy also.
Your bird will need to move the cones around the circle, up to the top, where an opening allows the reward to slide out of the cone, into the retrieval tray in the middle of the circle. Extra/replacement cones are also available so you can add more as your bird becomes more experienced.
This toy is made from tough, clear and blue polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks.
Measures 22 x 25cm. Attaches to cage with the 2 large, polycarbonate washer/screws that fits onto most cage and aviary bars. For Indian Ringnecks and smaller parrots, the smaller Mastermind Heart is more appropriately sized.
Tug n Slide Tower0 out of 5$42.80 – $44.30
This is a big, sturdy foraging toy that is great for the larger breeds of birds. Put your birds’ favourite treats, beads or normal food in this toy for your bird to work for. The Mini Feather Weight Foraging Foot Toys also fit well in the Tug n Slide.
Your bird will need to grasp the handle of the slider plate and move it back and forth for the reward to move between the 3 levels inside the toy. Then, when it’s in the bottom chamber, they need to pull the leather strap at the bottom of the toy to move the platform down and allow the reward to fall into the retrieval tray.
This toy is made from tough polycarbonate and is dishwasher safe. The toy itself is measures 28cm long and 13 x 11cm wide and deep (includes width of slide plate). Including the chain and leather strap, it is 60cm long and attaches to cage with large, stainless steel quick link.
There is also the option for me to replace the leather strap with a stainless steel ‘o’ ring connected to a regular pacifier for you bird to pull on instead, as most birds will chew up or untie the leather very quickly.
Parrot’s Treasure Chest4.00 out of 5$23.20
This is a great, tricky foraging toy – hide treats, foot toys, pellets, fruit or vege chunks within this toy for your bird to get out.
Your clever parrot will need to turn the 2 keys the correct amount and pull them out of the ‘lock’ to allow the lid of the toy to separate from the body of the toy. The key stays attached to the toy so it doesn’t get lost and the lid and body of the toy are connected by a chain so it can open without parts going everywhere. Check out the videos of this toy in use!
The Parrot’s Treasure can be used by most breeds of parrots, however shouldn’t be given to Conures, Quakers, Caiques, Lorikeets and Indian Ringnecks until they are experienced foragers as it can be a tricky toy.
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.
Snack Rack5.00 out of 5$25.60
This is an interesting foraging toy that really can be done by nearly every type of parrot. Hide treats, toys, pellets, fruit or vege chunks within the Snack Rack for your bird to get out.
Your bird will need to turn the outer pieces which rotate around the main body of the toy. Each of the 2 outer pieces has an indent which allows the piece to pass over the middle shelf which has a protruding piece. Start the toy at an easier level by having the treat at the top so your bird just needs to turn the pieces until one falls down to reveal the treat.
For Alexandrines and larger parrots, you can later increase the difficulty by putting the treat in the bottom level and your bird will need to turn and LIFT the top level to get it over the shelf above it, before retrieving their reward. This can be seen in the videos below.
Mastermind Heart0 out of 5$37.40
This is well designed, different little foraging toy, that suits the small guys well. Hide treats, beads and normal diet/pellets within the cones of this toy to entice your parrot.
Your bird will need to move the cones around the heart, up to the top, where an opening allows the reward to slide out of the cone, into the retrieval tray in the middle of the heart. Extra/replacement cones are also available so you can add more as your bird becomes more experienced.
This toy is made from tough, clear and green polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. For Alexandrines and larger parrots, the Mastermind Circle is more appropriately sized.
Measures 20 x 18cm. Attaches to cage with the 2 large, polycarbonate washer/screws that fit most cage and aviary bars.
Foraging Windmill/Paddle Wheel4.67 out of 5
This is a very smart and well designed foraging toy for experienced foragers and is suitable for most small breeds of birds, as well as medium ones.
Fill the top compartment with pellets/seeds/pieces of nut treats and some foraging substrate. Your bird will need to turn both the wheel at the top and then the wheel at the bottom of the toy. This spins the paddles, moving the food from level to level until it falls into the tray below for your bird to retrieve.
The windmill is made from tough polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. *Note – the toy does have a small (stainless steel) wing nut that holds the lid of this toy on. This wingnut does spin with the bottom wheel so it would be tricky for most birds to unscrew without help. If this is an issue for your bird, avoid this toy or outsmart them by placing it only a cm from the ceiling of the cage, so they can turn the wheel but not access the screw!
Measures roughly 23cm tall an 9cm in diameter. Screws onto the side of the cage with 2 of the polycarbonate washer/screws and fits most cage and aviary bars.
Hide n Seek5.00 out of 5$24.00
This is a super versatile little foraging toy that is easy to use and can be made harder for your birds. Hide nuts, toys, pinecones, gumnuts etc, shredded paper, blocks of wood, cuttle fish bones, fruit or vege chunks in this toy for your bird to chew out.
To use this toy, your bird simply needs to choose his/her target and get chewing! There are a total of 10 slots/opening in this toy to choose from. For expert foragers, you can easily make this toy harder by lining underneath/inside the openings with thick cardboard to chew through. The back of the toy unclips to make refilling a breeze without having to unscrew it from the bars (can be removed and refilled within an aviary also).
Measures 10 X 17.5cm, this toy is made from tough polycarbonate. It comes only in blue and includes the refill pack with wood blocks, shredded paper and a few vine balls as pictured. Screws to the side of the cage with a polycarbonate screw/washer that fits most cage and aviary bars.
Giant Foraging Wheel (Second Generation)0 out of 5
This is a sturdy foraging toy designed for large and extra large birds. Your parrot will need to turn the wheel to access five separate food compartments which you can fill with foot toys, beads, nuts, 'foraging parcels' and other treats. You can fit foraging foot toys, such as the Flower Pot, Smarty Ring and up to medium Feather Weights within the compartments of this wheel. Using 4cm Vine Balls and Yucca Pieces is also a great foraging idea.
Measures roughly 20cm in diameter and 5cm thick/deep. It screws onto cage at 2 points and fits most cage and aviary bars.
For medium parrots, I suggest the smaller, 'Extra-Large' version of this wheel. They are all made from tough polycarbonate and are dishwasher safe.
