Bird Toy Mania

Dear Parrot Lover,

Parrots are very intelligent beings. So intelligent, in fact, that they have the same mental capacity and intelligence as a two to three year old human child!

Just like children, these parrots need to be mentally stimulated. If they are not, they will literally go mad. They will also become increasingly destructive. But proper parrot toys also help parrots to hone their foraging skills.

But choosing the perfect parrot toy is essential to your parrot’s overall health and mental wellbeing. Did you know that parrot’s require a minimum of five toys? Each of these parrot toys should be as unique as your parrot. They must all be different colors, have different textures and, more
importantly they must each serve a different purpose.

The most important type of parrot toy is a foraging toy. When living in the wild, parrots forage for the food, but in a caged captivity environment, such as in your home, parrots do not have as much of an opportunity to forage for their food. Foraging helps to keep your both your parrot’s mind and beak very busy. Foraging toys allow you to place your parrot’s favorite treats inside them. Your parrot now has to attempt to figure out how to get their yummy treats out of the toy.

If your bird is quiet destructive whenever he is let out of his cage, and prefers to rip up your curtains, then you will certainly need to purchase a special kind of toy. This type of toy will be one that is meant to be destroyed by your parrot, such as a shreddable toy. But the time it takes your parrot to do this should be quite a while. If it takes your parrot only a few hours or minutes to destroy their new toy, then do not buy that toy again in the future. Those toys are a waste of your money.

The next best type of parrot toy is a puzzle toy. These carefully constructed toys are meant to keep your parrot happily occupied for hours. Some puzzle toys are designed to be nibbled on and even destroyed. With these toys it is important to remember that it is the learning experience that counts and not necessarily how much the toy can withstand from your parrot’s strong beak.

Other great toys to purchase are foot toys that your parrot can play with both in and out of his cage. If your parrot spends a lot of time outside of his cage, then consider buying a play gym. This free standing gym resembles a tree on which you can hang a few toys for you parrot. With branches pointing in different directions, your parrot will also be working out his feet.

Parrot toys provide your parrot with safe opportunities to explore and investigate various textures and tastes. Such toys offer many health and psychological benefits for your parrot.

Tips for a Trained Bird

Friday, September 15th, 2017

Dear Parrot Lover,

Not every parrot owner acquires their parrot as a baby or directly from a reputable breeder or pet store. Some parrot owners acquire their older parrot through a pet adoption program, or through a rehoming situation. No matter how an older parrot is acquired, they will have very special training needs.

Most likely your older parrot is more nervous being in a strange home with strange people and even stranger sounds and sights. They will typically express this nervousness through aggression that is commonly displayed by your parrot being extremely territorial of his cage or carrier.

You must have the utmost patience with your older parrot during his adjustment phase into his new home with you. This is certainly not the time to fight fire with fire! The quieter you are around your parrot and the softer you speak, the calmer your older parrot will become. Ever heard the expression “Music soothes the savage Beast”? Well, try playing some soothing music for your parrot.

Make sure that you also provide your new parrot with all of the foods that they are used to eating in their former home. If those foods can be considered to be ‘parrot junk-food’, such as foods that are heavily dyed and covered in sugar or salt, then you should also offer your parrot healthier food choices. But allow him to get used to eating different food at his own pace. Never simply replace his old brand of food with a new brand of food. Parrots need time to adjust to their food as well. Switching over too soon could cause your parrot to refuse to eat and he may starve. Sounds rather extreme, but it is sadly quite true.

You should also try to make sure that your parrot’s cage is a safe and happy haven for him. If your parrot still has his old cage, then you should clean it thoroughly and replace any broken toys, torn up ropes and whittled perches with newer and stronger ones. If you are giving your new older parrot a brand new cage, then do try to outfit with new perches and toys that are of the right dimension and size for your breed of parrot.

Place the cage in such a way that it is up against at least one wall in your house, and in an area of the house that is most often frequented by family members. Older parrots desire a sense of security and being against a wall offers that to them. The easiest way to assimilate your older parrot into the comings and goings of your family is to place them where they can feel that they are a part of your family, such as in the living room. But do not place their cage in the kitchen as fumes from certain types of pots and pans can be quite lethal to parrots.

With older parrots it is best to simply take your time in training them and allow them to actually set the pace.

Training Your Bird Can Do So Much….

When we see a parrot, we see what a pretty bird it is and think it can’t be that hard to have a bird for a pet. Well, that’s not a safe assumption! In fact, birds are great pets, if you know what you’re in for. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you can end up with a pet you can’t stand who screams at you, bites you, and generally disrupts your life.

Bird rescues are filled with birds that are no longer convenient as pets for owners who have grown tired of them. These birds can come with bad behaviors that need to be reworked before they can be adopted out.

The good news for bird rescues and bird owners like you is that any bird can be trained out of bad habits! Proper training and management can keep bad behaviors from forming altogether or can help change behaviors a bird may already have.

What
Does Training Do

Training helps change the relationship between a bird and his human. It develops communication between bird and human, and it can actually make your bird learn to love you.

Many mistakes in bird training are easily made by an owner, particularly if you don’t know it’s a mistake. Sometimes owners resort to mean or punitive styles of training that just don’t work and are cruel. These methods create birds that are fearful or mean in exchange.

Training should be positive and geared towards the bird. When training is done this way, a bird quickly responds and noticeable changes occur in a matter of days or weeks. Those previous behaviors of biting, screaming, or trying to harm you gradually reduce and go away.
