Toys for Your Feathered Friend
Birds are highly intelligent and in the wild, they engage in plenty of play during the day. However a pet bird does not have access to the intrigues of the wild and often, they do not have playmates to pass the time with. This is why it is important to have plenty of toys so they can keep themselves occupied!
When pet birds are bored or left by themselves for too many hours during the day they begin to get listless, depressed and may show this by plucking out their own feathers. To avoid this, you need to give your bird plenty of affection and the ability to entertain themselves when you are not around.
Toys that are designed for birds can be very different from the toys we have for dogs and cats because their needs are entirely different. Toys are a way of channelling your pet’s natural instincts. You should try to get toys that stimulate all your bird’s senses. This includes their sound, taste and sight. In the wild, birds are very active, they fly, hop, jump and climb. They are also natural chewers and use their strong beaks to break twigs, bark and other pieces of wood.
You should be extremely careful about the components of the toys that you are giving to your bird. Anything hazardous should be kept out of reach and your bird will probably gnaw on, throw and play rough with the toys that you do give to him or her. This is why you should keep a close eye on the toys that you give to your bird. If they are starting to fall apart or fray, remove the toy immediately as you do not want your pet to ingest a part of it accidentally. Toys for birds need not be very complicated, even those that are simple can appeal to their natural instincts will be played with for hours.

Got A Question? Raise a Wing
Do birds really play with toys?
While birds may not play in the typical way a cat or a dog might, birds need plenty of mental stimulation and exercise to keep their minds and bodies active. Toys for birds involve more rope climbing and puzzling activities. You can also get them toys that can be chewed to exercise their beaks.
What kind of toys should I get my bird?
Besides entertaining them, these toys should also give your bird a way of channelling their natural instincts. For instance, birds love to chew so they will automatically try to tear apart the toys you give them. So ensure you give them safe toys that cannot be torn apart easily. The toys should also be designed to stimulate their senses – including sight, sound and taste.
What are the important points to remember while buying toys for my bird?
Toys should be in line with the size of your bird, those that are too big may go ignored as they are too hard to play with and those that are too small may be dangerous as they can swallow it. There may be some trial and error when it comes to buying these toys just be careful to supervise your bird initially so there are no accidents.
