SAFETY.  To make these toys "bird safe", we buff the edge of the holes so they are rounded, not sharp.  This makes the holes a tiny bit larger.

More about the tubes.
  • Easy to clean & refill.    
  • TOY STYLES - your choice of 3 styles -- Foot, Hanging (on a
    bird safe chain), or Cage Mounted Toys 
  • HOLE SIZE in the 1/2-inch and 3/4-inch tubes is 7/16-inch.
    We use bigger sized holes for larger tubes.
     
  • PVC SIZE is the inside diameter (width) of the pipe.   

How to select the right size and style for your bird:

  • SELECT SIZE.  What do you want to put in the tube? 
         HOLE SIZE in the 1/2-inch and 3/4-inch tubes is 7/16-inch.
    We use bigger sized holes for larger tubes.
     
         PVC SIZE is the inside diameter (width) of the pipe. 
  • SELECT STYLE: 
         foot (on plastic rope hanger),
         hanging (on bird safe metal chain), or
         cage-mount (bird safe metal hardware).  
  • DIFFICULTY.  The foot toy is more challenging (for a small
    bird to hold or move than the hanging or cage mounted
    style toys.  The foot toy has a plastic rope hanger.
Bird Size and Toy Sizes
  • Small Birds (smaller than Amazon or AF grey).  Get the ½" size with a plastic rope hanger or get the hanging or cage mount style. 
  • Medium Birds (Amazon/grey) Can hold the smaller ½" in their foot (see photo below on the right).  Some medium birds can
    hold the 3/4" size.  They can also use any size that is hung or
    cage mounted.
  • Large Birds (large macaw and cockatoo) We recommend 
    using the larger sizes for these bigger birds.

How to use PVC toy

  • Remove white end cap and insert food or toy. Replace the cap.
    The bird works through the holes in the PVC tube to get the
    food or toy. 

  • You can add a small paper ball (like wadded up typing paper) in
    each end of the tube to hold the food near the holes to make it
    easier to get.

Clearly Fun™ PVC Food & Toy Foraging Tubes
  • Easy to clean & refill.    

    • HOW TO WASH.  Wash in a dishwasher or wash by hand. 
      If you put in the dishwasher, remove the caps and put
      the parts in the silverware basket.  I let the tube air dry.

    • HOW TO MAKE THE CAPS TIGHTER.  Caps are removable
      (by people and some birds).  To make the cap extra tight,
      place a small piece of paper between the tube and the cap.

    • Clearly Fun Treat Tube, foot toy with plastic rope hanger

    • The foot toy style comes with a short plastic rope hanger.
      It small holes in the cap that can be used to hang on the
      EH Chewable Hangers (skewers) as shown in some of the photos.

  • Toy Styles - your choice of 3 styles 

    • Foot toy with removable Paulie Rope hanger

    • Hanging toy - hardware is all nickel-plated (NP). 
      It is bird safe (chain & O-rings).

    • Cage mount toy - with stainless steel (bolt and wing nut)
      and two acrylic washers.

  • Hole size in toys:  Each PVC tube has three holes. 
    ** Hole size we use for the smaller tubes is 7/16-inch
    (just under 1/2-inch).

    PVC Sizes are ½-inch, 3/4-inch, 1-inch, 1-1/2-inch, and 2-inch
    The size is the inside diameter (width) of the pipe
    .

    • How large?  What fits inside??

      • ½" -- pistachio nuts, shelled peanuts, and seeds

      • 3/4" and 1" -- large almonds, Brazil nuts (plus the smaller
        types of food too).
