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!
How to clean the Stainless Steel Birdie Skewer
May be hand washed and is dishwasher safe
When introducing new toys to your bird, monitor your bird with the toy for the first few days until you are sure he is interacting safely with his new toy.
The skewer comes with a metal cage clip. When hanging the skewer on the cage bars ensure that the cage clip is fully screwed on to prevent entrapment.
