This is a great, chewable toy that will help to keep your parrot amused. With lots of soft, chewy yucca along with some coloured wood blocks, threaded onto sisal rope, what’s not to love! Yucca is a type of plant and the long cream tubes pictured here are lengths of the yucca plants’ root. The inside of the root is very soft and fun to chew. You can also stuff seeds and treats into the yucca for your bird to forage out! (as pictured in the last photo).
Natives in the area Yucca grows, cook and eat the yucca root. Yucca is found in other toys in my store and in pieces as a foot toy or toy part. It is natural and safe! This toy measures 35cm long and 15.5cm wide and hangs from a nickel plated pear clip.
A selection of 5 various pieces of Yucca. Yucca is a type of plant and these pieces of dried plant stalk are bird safe, soft and chewable. Parrots, small and large love munching on the soft, fibrous natural material. It’s great to give as a foot toy or thread onto other toys. You can poke a hole with skewer, wire or scissors and hang it in your birds’ cage. By making small holes in the Yucca and pushing dry food treats into it, you can make this a foraging foot toy also.
As a natural item, the pieces do vary and a fair selection will be chosen for you.
The last photo is an example of how food can be stuck in the yucca. This is a different size/style of Yucca to the item – see “5 Yucca Slices” for this style of Yucca piece.
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.
There is a reason this original foraging wheel from Caitec is still around, it is great for feeding your birds’ dry food and treats and can be used by many breeds, including small parrots.
Fill with a mix of normal food or treats and a safe foraging substrate, to make the treats harder to get to. Your bird will need to turn the face of the wheel using the handle or the openings. This changes the position of the 2 openings and allows access to the 5 different compartments within the wheel. You can add chewable items to the mix for your bird to get their beak into. Mini and small Feather Weight Foot Toys fit well inside the compartments, as well as 2cm Vine Balls and small Yucca Pieces.
This toy is made from tough polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. It attaches to the side of the cage using the typical Creative Foraging Systems washer/screw provided which fits most cage and aviary bars.
The wheel is about 15cm in diameter and 3cm deep and best suits small and medium parrots and is not very suitable for Alexandrines due to their beak size. Check out the Generation II wheels for larger birds.
The Creative Foraging Systems Hanging 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 and more time consuming for your bird.
Your can introduce this to your bird at an easy level, without any covering at first. Once they know there’s food in the toy, you can start covering it with the sleeves provided for them to work more for their food. Your clever parrot will need to chew open the cardboard box to access the rewards inside! The cardboard sleeves come with various perforated openings that you can remove as ‘windows’ to the food inside, another great way to adjust the difficulty as your bird learns. The Hanging Box Feeder comes with 2 sleeves in the pack already and refill packs of 5 sleeves can be purchased separately.
This toy is made from clear polycarbonate and hangs on a short chain with pear clip to attach it to your birds’ cage.
A 30cm long, natural chew, full of lots of different natural seed pods and textures for your small to medium parrot to chew and explore.
One of the original and most popular “Kirsty’s Natural Bird Toys”, this toy is handmade with Australian Gumnuts, Casuarina, Banksia and Liquid Amber pods plus native branch pieces and a pinecone, threaded onto stainless steel wire. A loop is made at the top of the toy to attach a hanging link to.
You can add an element of foraging to your birds’ environment by hiding millet, pellets or other treats in the small openings in the dry seed pods, as shown in the example pictures.
Suits most breeds of birds or mixed cages as it is a good, in between size.
These natural toys are handmade and the seed pods are seasonally available. Therefore, every toy does differ and contains a mix of dry/open and green/closed seed pods. Please contact me before purchase if you have specific wishes or want to check availability of certain seed pods.

This toy is perfectly designed for feeding your small parrot their fruits and vegetables. You could also fill with shredded paper, large pellets/nuts and parcels.
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. Believe it or not, this toy can actually help to reduce mess and wastage. Every beak-full of food your bird gets out, he has to purposely chew/work for so more often than not, he’s not going to throw it all over your walls!
The Hanging Sphere is 8cm in diameter, 21cm long in total and is made from tough polycarbonate. It is best suited to birds with smaller beaks, for Indian Ringnecks and larger, the Buffet Ball is better suited.
A bird-safe foraging substrate that is made from recycled paper and recommended by many avian vets. This is a 500 gram packet to get your pet parrot started with foraging. You can add this to foraging toys, mixing it with pellets or seed to make the task take longer for your parrot. Or create a foraging tray or bowl for your bird to search amongst – add foot toys, seeds, pellets or foraging parcels for your bird to find amongst the substrate.
This is a convenient sized, 500 gram packet. It is decanted from a larger bag and packaged in a clean zip lock bag with a label.
Feeling the cold? As the temperature cools down, these Snuggle Safe Heat Pads are a great, SAFE way to keep your pets warm. With no electric cords or chewable surfaces, this is the safest way to do it. The Snuggle Safe Heat Pad can be used for cats, dogs, parrots, rabbits and pocket pets.
Microwave for about 8 minutes (see instructions for different microwaves) and it stays warm for nearly 10 hours so it’s great for overnight. The heat pad comes with a fleece cover which can be used with cats, dogs and most pocket pets, though it’s recommended to not have materials in reach of parrots and other pets that like to chew fabric. I choose to not have fabrics near my birds and it works just fine without the cover.

This is a cute little foraging toy that is great for the smaller breeds of birds. Fill it with your bird’s favourite treats, and their normal diet.
Your bird will need to spin the maze by holding onto the opening and moving it around. The wheel spins freely and your bird can watch their food move from shelf to shelf until it reaches the opening. By adding bird safe foraging substrate, you can increase the difficulty of this maze once your bird is experienced at it. The maze fits together as 2 pieces and is held firmly by the bolt and washers attaching it, however it can be taken apart for easy cleaning.
This toy is made from tough, clear and coloured acrylic and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. It is the small version of this toy, a large is also available and both are pictured in the last image. The small measures 10cm in diameter and roughly 3cm thick/deep. Screws onto the side of the cage with the nut and bolt set, as well as 2 washers. Fits all cage/aviary bars.
