Lightbulb Cool bird toys

Hollow out wooden tunnel log things: I see them when I go to buy new toys for my budgies, and I always wonder how can a bird chew out the entire center? or make a nest in it?

Here's a picture. ( it was the only one i could find lol)

Or those funny looking pinata's for birds? Has anyone ever bought one of those? I'd like to know more about these items.

Those round ones are more so for bigger parrots who can rip it apart. You can buy the piņata either pre filled or DIY. The birds shred them

Does your bird chew it and break it apart with its beak? Do you have to fill it like a real pinata? It sounds like fun for the birds

Ohhhhhhhhh I see. Cool!
What about the hollow out nests? Does a bird really hollow out the entire thing?

Kennedy -

Where did you get that wooden toy with the pegs? That's neat! Is there a nut or treat inside?

I got mine from a local petsmart
But I'm sure they would be at any pet store that supplies hamster accessories.

Yes there is a nut in there.. To big for a conure.. But she loves it with almonds shoved in the middle

The pinatas I've also heard of. I suppose the birds can hollow it out. I've mostly heard of budgies using it.

yeah that wood toy is a very soft wood

our chinchillas LOVE that wood block toy. its a HUGE hit with them, though i dunno how small birds would like it. id worry bout budgie heads getting stuck in the spaces.

I ordered two of those "Nut Knot Knibbler" in the mini size. Found them for $2.31 each on line. One is for Libby, my GCC and the other is for Charley, my Hahns Macaw. Charley loves wood!

I didn't get one for Angelina, my Parrotlet, because as you say, I'd worry about her teeny head getting caught -- she's very petite, only 24 grams!

I have bought the pinatas, Cricket likes them. They don't come filled, you have to fill it with something your bird likes.

1" is too big for tiels and lovebirds and budgies. my lovebirds could fit their body through the 1" bar spacing of the ferret nation cages, so 1" could possibly get heads stuck for little birds. max for tiels and lovebirds is 5/8"

Yes, that's why I didn't get one for my Parrotlet, just the GCC and Hahns. She gets only tiny toys!

Oh right forgot about that.. It must be smaller.. Can hardly get my finger past the first knuckle in there..

But ya considering the size of a parrotlet I can see the things they could get into trouble with :0

I plan on hanging them in their cages, just to make it more difficult! I'll post on how they work out.

~I bought Bob some new toys!
I stuffed some apple slices in the ball (pic 3)
Bob loves it!

The wooden ball (pic 2) came flat packed I put it together, photographed it then decided it wasn't solid enough and took it apart and hung it off the play stand in bits.
Not such a big hit but it got played with.

I thought I could stuff mash in the small holes and hang it or put it in flat.
And the other toy, cos it looks cool and I can stuff it with nuts then put it back together!
