Food-Finding Parrot Toy Examples

The parrot toys you see below are examples of how you can use the natural parrot toys that we provide to our clients as Food Finding Toys or foraging toys.

Here’s what I want you to notice in the pictures below:

1) Look how I’ve wedged pellets into the first two toys shown; be prepared to squint as they’re kind of hidden.

2) The third toy I’m showing is an example of what the second toy looks like after my African Grey Parrot has tried to tear the food out of it… while it was new.

And the great thing about these toys, is that the more destroyed they are, the MORE hiding places you can find to hide food (pellets)… and if you look closely, you will see that I’ve been able to hide the food even deeper and more cleverly in the torn up toy.

It’s this process of encouraging your parrot to scavenge through the toy, digging at it and pulling it apart to get the food it can see out of it, that really gets your bird actively using his brain and using his body in creative ways to get at the task, too!
