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.
Straw Beads are small plastic tubes that can be used in toy making. They come in red, blue, green, orange and yellow. Use Straw Beads to safely close the opening in 'C' links (as pictured). This is important to keep your bird safe from getting their beak or other parts caught in the opening. C links not included and can be purchased separately.
These colourful little tea cups are too cute to pass by! With different faces on each cup and a handle that can be held my many breeds of birds, they make a great foot toy. Train your bird to hold it with their foot while they 'drink' out of the cup for a reward. You can use them as a toy part or just hang the cups in your birds cage. Mini Feather Weight Foot Toys fit well within the cup, as do 2cm Vine Balls and many pellets and smaller nuts. There is a video in the tab below showing the cup in use. There is a gap in the handle, big enough for stainless steel 'o' rings and small rope to pass through to hang the cup or use it as a toy part.
A standard sized, small pear clip that is nickel plated and safe for most small parrots. Please use stainless steel if you are concerned about metals or the longevity of metals in an outdoor environment.
Always use quick links for large parrots or those that can un-do these clips. Many toys come with these links attached but please check as certain toys and ranges like Planet Pleasures and my own natural toys don't come with links so you can choose your own.
