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.
