As a bird owner I’ve gone through many bird toys some good, some useless. Here are seven toys that I have found that are worth the money without breaking bank.
The spiral bungee rope toy/perch has been essential for my Conure. She uses it to go up and down levels, get in and out of her cage and occasionally sprials up the cord itself. Although this may technically not be a toy, she enjoys and uses it daily. I highly recommend it for any bird owner. Yes is it $16.00 but we got this toy when we got her 4 years ago and its still in great shape . If the rope gets soiled just pull it out and run it under water with a scrub brush (no soap) and scrub it clean and let it air dry before putting it back in the cage. Birds love bells and there is a bell on the bottom of this toy that they will love to play with. Check it out by clicking here
One thing to remember about birds is that they are not that different from dogs. They like to chew and you need to make sure that they are doing it in a safe way. They best way to do that is to buy them a toy made to chew on. Here is one that is great for different size and multiple birds. This is the most expensive one on my list but its size and being so in depth it’s worth the money. This toy you hang from the top of the cage and if any part of it becomes soiled just cut off parts of it or scrub with a scrub brush and warm water to clean. (no soap) For more information click here
Its important to embrace a pet birds’ wild roots. They naturally have the need to forage and if you neglect that need they can become destructive or disruptive. Make sure you always have at least one foraging toy for your bird. Give them a task and make them work for their reward and both you and your bird will be happier for it. This foraging toy I recommend for its versatility and size and what pet owner wouldn’t spend $15.00 so that their pet doesn’t destroy things, themselves, or your peace? Look here
The thing with foraging is that birds like options just like anyone. And all pets have their favorites. My bird has always gravitated toward this basket foraging toy. It is her “go to” when she is nervous, anxious with new people or all around bored. She destroys it, but I have peace of mind that it wont hurt her in the process. I clip it on to the front of my cage for easy access. Of all the toys that I have recommended this one is Peanuts’ favorite. Here it is see what you think
