What are preening toys?
Preening toys are toys with fibres that your parrot can pull, pick at and pull apart. You might have seen your own birds picking at fabric fibres to enterain themselves or preening your hair. Providing your bird preening toys can distract them from picking at fabric/cotton fibres which are unsafe for them. They can also be helpful if your bird has a tendency to overpreen his own feathers.
Why are cotton preening toys unsafe for parrots?
Although cotton rope toys are frequently marketed as "preening toys" for parrots, they are actually unsafe for birds because of the ways birds interact with the material. Because parrots love to shred, chew, preen using their beaks, cotton rope preening toys poses significant risks of chemical poisoning, strangulation, entanglement and developing a gastrointestinal blockage.
