Choosing Bird Toys

Choosing bird toys can be either complicated or simple, depending on whether you did your homework.

One of the main things to take in mind when choosing your bird’s toys is what they would do if they were not sitting in your living room, but in the wild. Like dogs, cats, and other pets, birds tend to “play” as if they were growing up in the wild.

For instance, parakeets are very intelligent, love sounds, and love colors. Also, like all birds, they need to be able to use their beaks to “explore” from time to time, because it also helps in its cleaning. So, maybe the best way of choosing bird toys for this kind of bird might be to check out what colored ropes, bells, and other challenging things you can find to keep your friend busy when you are not around.

Normally, the same people who advise you of what food to feed your new fine-feathered friend will also be able to help you when you are choosing bird toys to entertain your new “fowl” friend.

As with any pet, you also need to keep safety in mind when choosing your bird’s toys. For instance, the fumes from cedar, pine, redwood, and pressure-treated wood can be toxic or fatal to some birds. Also, bird toys that your bird can get their feet or wings entangled in should definitely be avoided. One should also avoid toys that have parts which could be easily swallowed by your bird.

Like any pet, sometimes choosing new bird toys for your new friend is a simple matter of trial and error – just because your brother likes soccer doesn’t mean that you do, even though you are from the same family. The same is true for your pet. The main key in choosing bird toys is to keep safety, entertainment, and contentment in mind.
