This toy is perfectly designed for feeding your large bird fruits, vegetables and foraging treats. You can fill it with shredded paper, large pellets/nuts and parcels as well as pine cones, timber pieces and gumnuts.
Your bird just needs to reach their beak into the slots/openings in this toy to pull out their prize! Wrapping your birds’ chunks of fruit and vegetables will prolong the enjoyment of this toy as your bird chews through the paper to get to their reward.
The Party Ball is made from tough polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. It is 12cm in diameter and has a range of round holes (1.5cm) and oval slots (3.5 x 1.5cm) for your bird to use. This is a loose, individual toy and can be hung from the skewers shown below or placed in a foraging bowl.
The smaller 3″ Party Ball (aka Buffet Ball) is pictured in the last photo and also available in my store.
A high quality and very safe stainless steel skewer that can be used to hang fruits and vegetables, foraging balls, foraging boxes and all kinds of other items in your birds' cage. Also great for Rabbits and pocket pets. This skewer is different in that the end cannot be unscrewed, a great solution for larger birds or those that make it their mission to un-do all their toys! The clever design by this brand means that your parrot cannot sufficiently grip the part that un-screws, to be able to un-do it. The ball end is made from hard parrot-safe plastic. Better yet, you can hang the skewer by holding the metal part inside the cage and the ball outside, then screw together, through the bars so that the ball sits on the outside. The skewer is 22cm long and does not include a hanging link. These can be purchased separately or hang as described and you don't need one. Suitable for all breeds of parrots and cages up to 1" bar spacing. See my store for the larger sizes available too! This is the Hangin' Round Skewer with the small sized skewer width and ball and a 8" long skewer. There is a 12" and 18" length available with a larger sized skewer width and ball. I also stock other brands of small skewers to choose from, though Hangin' Round is the highest quality of them.
A safe stainless steel skewer that can be used to hang fruits and vegetables, foraging balls, foraging boxes and all kinds of other items in your birds' cage. The skewer is 25cm long and includes a large stainless steel quick link. Suitable for small to medium parrots. Not recommended for large parrots or those that chew as the skewer attaches to a rod of hard plastic before a loop comes out to hang from the quick link. See the Hangin' Round Skewer for larger parrots.
The Creative Foraging Systems Box Feeder toy is great for feeding your birds' dry food and treats. Fill with bird safe foraging substrate to make the food harder to get to.

Refill packs of 15 boxes can be purchased separately in my store. This toy is the smaller of the 2 sizes (shown together in last images) and is made from tough polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. It comes in clear, as pictured and attaches to the side of the cage using a polycarbonate screw/washer that fits most cage and aviary bars.

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.

The Snack Rack is a great foraging puzzle for parrots that has 2 main difficulty levels. 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. Great for small parrots (eg Conures, Quakers, Lorikeets) that are experienced with other foraging designs, as well as for all medium and large breeds of parrots. 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. Please note, this toy used to come in a translucent green colour, as you will see in the videos. It now comes as completely clear.Parrots are very clever, but won't automatically know how to use this toy. Be sure to introduce this toy to them at an easy level and gradually make it more difficult - show them how to use it, let them win!
This is a fun little puzzle toy for your parrot to explore and find treats in.
