    Why do birds need shredding toys?
    Shredding is a natural activity for parrots and are critical to their psychological well being. Being natural foragers, shredding foliage away from food is part of their natural feeding behavior. You might have seen your own birds shredding their perches, newspapers at the bottom of the cage or even your important documents! 

    By providing shredding toys, you will provide your bird with opportunities for natural activities similar to those that would occur in the wild. You will have happier birds who are interested in exploring and shredding their toys than screaming and developing other behavioral problems.

    Why do birds need chewing toys?
    Chewing is a natural activity for parrots and is critical to their psychological well being.

    Parrot beaks were designed for chewing. Wild parrots spend hours each day utilizing their strong beaks to chew leaves and bark, chiseling away at nest holes, tearing up branches looking for food or extracting food from a pea pod or walnut. You might have seen your own birds chewing on their perches or even your wood furniture!

    By providing chewing toys, you will provide your bird with opportunities for natural activities similar to those that would occur in the wild. Not only does this activity keep beaks and nails healthy, but it helps maintain alertness and mental stability. You will have happier birds who are interested in exploring and chewing their toys than screaming and developing other behavioral problems.

    Why do birds need preening toys?
    Preening toys are toys with fibres, loose strands or knots that your parrot can pull, pick at and pull apart. You might have seen your own birds picking at fabric fibres to entertain themselves or preening your hair. These toys enable parrots to mimic natural preening behaviour and can help to reduce over-preening of their own feathers which damages the natural feathers.  Providing your bird appropriate preening toys can also 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 do birds need climbing toys?
    Climbing is a natural activity for parrots. Although wild parrots can fly, they love to climb through trees and vines, using their beak as a third foot. Our pet parrots do not get as much flight opportunities, so it is important to provide a playing environment that simulates a parrot’s natural habitat.

    Climbing is even more important for clipped or special needs parrots. As they cannot fly (well) to get from one place to another, you’d notice that they will climb, jump and swing instead. By providing climbing toys in your parrot’s playing environment, you are providing your bird much needed opportunities for active play and exercise.

    What are foot toys?
    Parrot foot toys are toys that your parrot can hold in his foot or push around easily with his beak. They are huge favorites among ground-feeding birds (such as budgies, parakeets, cockatiels, cockatoos, African greys), clipped birds or parrots who simply love playing on the ground.

    Because of their smaller size, they are great toys to introduce to shy parrots and can be a great way to teach a parrot how to play with toys. Foot toys are very versatile as they can be used alone or added to other foraging toys, toy buckets or bowls in your bird’s cage.

    Why do birds need natural wood perches?
    Birds, especially our pet birds, are standing on perches for most of the day. In the wild, they would be flying and perching on tree branches - with no two branches being the same. Hence, natural wooden perches are very important as they provide parrots natural areas to perch on like they do in the wild.

    Natural wood perches are the best perch option for birds out of all perches (plastic, dowel, rope, sand/concrete) because the natural textures and varying diameters of the wood are very comfortable to perch on and helps to exercise their feet.

    This prevents arthritis (pain and swelling in the joints) and bumblefoot, usually caused by perching on perches that have the same diameter. Bumblefoot is a common, and extremely painful condition where the skin on the foot starts to wear away due to constant pressure on the same spot which can eventually lead to infection.

    The length variations in natural wood perches also encourage much-needed exercise as birds hop, climb or fly between perches.

    Benefits of soaking seeds
    Soaking seeds is a great addition to a parrot’s daily diet and one of the easiest ways to introduce fresh foods to seed junkies. The process of soaking makes grains, legumes and seeds more nutrient-dense and easily digestible. They are especially great for breeding or moulting birds as they are high in protein. They also make a great weaning food for baby birds.
