Sola is the lightest wood in the world and is even softer than balsa! Small parrots love chewing at the satisfying pieces. Because these stems are so light, they can be easily held as foot toys. Alternatively, you can thread onto wire, cord or a skewer to make your own toy. You can also put these in your birds foraging tray or refillable holder toy (eg Hide n Seek, Buffet Ball or Baffle Cage). While these parts do not come with a pre-drilled hole, the sola is so soft, that it’s easy to poke a hole with a skewer, screwdriver or similar.
Each Sola Stem measures roughly 10cm long and 2 to 3cm in diameter. These are listed individually, so you can purchase the quantity that you want in plain, dyed and bark options. I have dyed the coloured ones myself with food safe dyes – a costly and time consuming process, hence the extra cost of the dyed option. The new ‘bark’ option of Sola has a thin layer of ‘crispy’ yet soft bark on the outside. This is soft enough for small beaks to break through still.
While perfectly safe for all breeds of bird, I have only ‘tagged’ this product for smaller parrots. This is because of how soft this part is and the fact that larger parrots would destroy it incredibly quickly. Sola is softer than balsa and yucca – so soft, you can easily dint it with your fingernail! Your large bird will have a great time chewing it, just don’t expect a piece to last too long once they discover the joy of tearing it into tiny pieces.
