Selecting Foraging Toys for Your Birds
All birds like to solve puzzles and find treats. Simple foraging toys are good for most birds. We
recommend a mix of foot toys and hanging toys. Also, some foraging toys
should be the kind your bird can destroy (wood, paper, and other natural
materials) -- that's what they do in the wild.
Changing the Difficulty Level. Toys
can be made easier or more difficult for your bird to open by adding layers of
material that block the treat or loosening parts to make it easier.
Difficult Foraging Toys. Cockatoos
tend to be very "mechanical" (they like to take nuts and bolts
apart) and like the most complex toys. They enjoy the challenge of the
Locked Up Loot Toys. Simple foraging toys like Flower Power and Peek-A-Boo may be too
easy for cockatoos.
