Medium Pipe Dream$20.00 – $21.00
The Pipe Dream is a foraging toy of Kirsty’s own making. They are made in 3 different sizes to suit a range of parrots and the medium is best suited to Cockatiels to Indian Ringnecks.
Your parrot just needs to lift the lid out of the way and reach their beak inside the pipe to retrieve their reward. You can mix seed/pellets with bird safe foraging substrate inside the toy or use larger items like nuts, beads or chunks of vegetables wrapped in paper. When first introducing this toy, you can use a piece of sticky tape to hold one lid open for your bird to learn where to find the food. After they have used it this way for a few days, you can remove the tape and let them pick the lid up themselves.
The stainless steel chain running through the toy, helps to hold the lids a little more securely to add some difficulty. Pacifiers adorn the ends of the chain.
The Pipe dream is made with bird safe, tough pvc and all hardware is stainless steel. There are acrylic beads and cardboard birdy bagels for your bird to play with too. At the top, there is an ‘o’ ring to attach your own hanging link to. There are 2 options for the type of lid you would like on this toy, for Cockatiels, small Conures, Quakers & most Lorikeets the plastic lid is suitable (first 2 images). For birds that like to destroy plastic, like larger Conures, Caiques, Indian Ringnecks then the tougher acrylic lid is best (last 2 images). The acrylic discs are all clear, coloured ones are not currently available.
For Budgies and Lovebirds, there is a small toy available and for Alexandrines to Macaws, the Large Pipe Dream is available and comes only with acrylic lids.
The Groovy Bonzo is a chewing toy made for our smaller chewing parrots. With thick paper twist rope poking about, it entices even shy chewers in for a nibble. The different textures of the grooved timber and bits to twirl around on the paper rope is all made from bird safe materials.
The toy measures 25cm wide, 4cm deep and a total of 40cm long including the hanging link it comes with (the body of the toy is about 15cm tall).
Vetafarm Nutriblend Small 350g
Great for use as a treat in dry food foraging toys for birds that eat plain pellets as their regular diet. Also useful to use this coloured, flavoured pellet to convert your bird from a seed diet. Birds are more likely to take to this food when converting than they are to many of the plain pellets.
This pellet is the small size, larger than the mini. Each pellet is slightly smaller than a green pea.
These 2 packets are on special as their ‘best before’ date is July 2018.
Vetafarm South American Mix 350g$13.00
Great for use as a treat in dry food foraging toys for birds that eat plain pellets as their regular diet. This food is designed for South American Breeds of parrot as a base-diet, in conjunction with vegetables and fruits. I prefer to feed a plain pellet with lower energy and use these as treats as well as daily vegetables and fruit.
This variety comes in one size only but is the same as the ‘small’ in the Nutriblend range. Each pellet is slightly smaller than a green pea.

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.

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.

This great little climbing net is ideal for those smaller feet and beaks! Designed with Budgies, Lovebirds & Cockatiels in mind, the diameter of the rope pieces is 3-4mm.

It is actually small enough to fit reasonably within your birds cage, or can be set up as part of a play area out of the cage.

Even the occasional small Pinecone or Banksia cone is added to the ladders.
Please select from the options to customise your ladder. If you have other requests, please include them in the order notes and/or contact me first to discuss your requirements. I typically make a loop on each of the 4 ends. You can then attach a pear clip or other hanging link to each end (hanging links purchased separately and available on this site). I can put alternative ends on the ladder like a hook shape, though please be careful to assess how the hook sits in your birds’ area to ensure it is safe. See the last couple of photos which show these options.
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.
These ladders do take a bit of time for me to make and I do this in addition to my job as a vet nurse. I also prefer to use fresh seed pods that I collect once I have an order, so please allow up to 1 – 2 weeks for your order to be made (though some may be made in a matter of days too). Feel free to contact me before placing an order to check availability.
