Why Toys are Important for Pet Birds

As bird owners, we enjoy hours of watching our feathered friend play with bird toys. There are numerous types of toys: destroy, sound/noise, Bird Playing On Interactive Perchinteractive and exercise. All are excellent types of pet bird supplies to satisfy your bird’s natural inquisitive nature.

Parrot Playing On Toy PlaneBirds get bored. Toys challenge your bird, allowing them to move around bird toy parts, ring bells, untie knots, or even take shreddable bird toys apart. Switch out the toys to keep your pet bird stimulated and from playing with the same toys all the time.

It is not uncommon to see your bird favor or bond with a particular toy. Just like a child and his favorite blanket, the toy will become a surrogate friend to your bird. You will begin to notice your bird getting angry or loud when his “friend” is removed from the cage. There is no need to remove your bird’s favorite toy, but it won’t harm anything by just leaving the toy in the cage.

One more little tip… if you bird is not interacting or is afraid of a certain bird toy, hang it outside the cage. This will decrease his fear and create curiosity.
