Every Parrot Needs Some Toys

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Dear Parrot Lover,

If you are a new parrot owner, you may not know what a foot toy is. Or if you do, you may be wondering what the benefits are of giving your parrot a foot toy to play with, especially when their cage is already filled with lots of other toys to play with.

The simple reasoning is that foot toys help in exercising your parrot’s dexterity; strengthens foot and leg muscles; and increases mobility.

Most foot toys are small, brightly colored, multi-textured toys that are not hung in a parrot’s cage. Instead they are given to your parrot so that he can play with it with his feet and beak. They come in such a vast array of sizes, shapes and colors that you are sure to be able to find quite a few suitable foot toys for your parrot! Some foot toys are easily destroyed whilst others are seemingly indestructible. Some are made out of natural resources or wood, plastic, paper, stainless steel and much more.

There are a variety of toys for a variety of parrot personalities. For example, if your parrot likes to shred everything in sight, then a toy that is easily destroyed will be more appropriate than a stainless steel one. If your parrot like to use his beak during his playtime, then a toy such as a puzzle or one that has easily moving parts will satisfy his curiosity. If your parrot loves to forage for his treats, try stuffing a plastic whiffle ball with a few of his favorite treats and giving it to him to play with.

Before deciding on the perfect foot toy for your parrot, you should think about how your parrot will probably play with it. Make sure that the toy will withstand your parrot’s strong beak and being dropped quite a few times as well. Always keep your birds size in mind, but do not buy the biggest toy just because your parrot is a big bird! Instead, consider whether or not your parrot will be able to lift up the toy with his feet and beak and manipulate it around.

As with any toy, parrots can be a bit nervous of a foot toy, so remember to introduce a new foot toy to your parrot very slowly. Your parrot will soon come to the realization of much fun it is to play with such a toy that they can hold with their feet and beak.

Discover The #1 Reason Parrots Loose Their Homes

Dear Parrot Lover,

Do You Know Why Your Bird Bites?

Do you have a bird that bites a lot? Are there days when you believe that he has mistaken your finger for a chew toy? Are you in fear that your bird will bite you again? And is this fear stopping you from enjoying being a parrot parent?

Sadly, once most parrot owners have been bitten by their parrots, it is very hard for them to regain their trust of their Parrot. Besides requiring a positive attitude and plenty of patience, you will also need to try to understand your parrot’s behavior.

Contrary to popular belief, it is quite easy to stop your parrot from biting you! You just need to know how to interpret your parrot’s body language.

One of the most common causes of parrot bites is that the owners do not give their parrots enough credit and unknowingly force them to do something that they do not want to do. So, their parrot bites them to make them aware of the fact that they do not want to do whatever it is that their owner wants them to do. An easy example of this is when an owner wants to spend time with their parrot and reaches into the cage to get him and the parrots bites the owners hand. Obviously the parrot did not want to come out of his cage and let the owner know that by biting him. Just because the owner wanted to spend time with the parrot at that moment, doesn’t mean that the parrot wanted to spend time with the owner at that moment.

Here are other reasons why some Parrots bite:

Fear

Frustration

Reaching Adolescence

Molting Feathers

Protecting their cage/toys

Jealousy

All parrots display very subtle behavior signs that he shows you to forewarn you that he is preparing to bite you. As soon as you can learn to identify those behavior signs, you will be able to prevent your parrot from biting you. Another advantage of recognizing these signs is that not only will you understand your parrot’s behavior, but you will also be able to identify the triggering factors that lead up to a bite, and of course will be able to prevent your Parrot from actually biting you ever again!

A few of the most common warning signs are your parrot pinning his eyes and fluffing out his feathers.

Never ignore these subtle behavior signs! Because if you do, your parrot will bite you and you will flinch and scream out in pain. Since parrot’s love overly enthusiastic displays, he will love your rendition of being bitten. You have now, inadvertently, taught your parrot that if he bites you, he will receive a show! You have just taught your parrot that he will be rewarded with your loud vocalizations whenever he bites you. And this is not what you want!

Are Your Parrot’s Bad Behavior Habits Standing
In The Way Of A Lasting, Satisfying Bonding Experience?

Do You Know The #1 Reason For Parrot Homelessness? Poor Behavior!
