Why do birds need foraging toys?
Foraging is a behavioral need for parrots. Wild parrots spend up to 70% of their day searching for food. After finding food, they have to crack and peel open their food which takes most of their day and keeps them occupied. Also, it has been found that parrots prefer to perform some sort of work for food even when "free" food is available.
By providing foraging toys, you will provide your bird with a purpose, a mental challenge, increased opportunities for exercise, play time and a reward for their effort!
