Dear Parrot Lover,
If you are a new parrot owner, you may not know what a foot toy is. Or if you do, you may be wondering what the benefits are of giving your parrot a foot toy to play with, especially when their cage is already filled with lots of other toys to play with.
The simple reasoning is that foot toys help in exercising your parrot’s dexterity; strengthens foot and leg muscles; and increases mobility.
Most foot toys are small, brightly colored, multi-textured toys that are not hung in a parrot’s cage. Instead they are given to your parrot so that he can play with it with his feet and beak. They come in such a vast array of sizes, shapes and colors that you are sure to be able to find quite a few suitable foot toys for your parrot! Some foot toys are easily destroyed whilst others are seemingly indestructible. Some are made out of natural resources or wood, plastic, paper, stainless steel and much more.
There are a variety of toys for a variety of parrot personalities. For example, if your parrot likes to shred everything in sight, then a toy that is easily destroyed will be more appropriate than a stainless steel one. If your parrot like to use his beak during his playtime, then a toy such as a puzzle or one that has easily moving parts will satisfy his curiosity. If your parrot loves to forage for his treats, try stuffing a plastic whiffle ball with a few of his favorite treats and giving it to him to play with.
Before deciding on the perfect foot toy for your parrot, you should think about how your parrot will probably play with it. Make sure that the toy will withstand your parrot’s strong beak and being dropped quite a few times as well. Always keep your birds size in mind, but do not buy the biggest toy just because your parrot is a big bird! Instead, consider whether or not your parrot will be able to lift up the toy with his feet and beak and manipulate it around.
As with any toy, parrots can be a bit nervous of a foot toy, so remember to introduce a new foot toy to your parrot very slowly. Your parrot will soon come to the realization of much fun it is to play with such a toy that they can hold with their feet and beak.
Combat your parrot’s boredom!
Your Bird Needs Toys To Remain
Healthy and Happy!
Boost His Happiness —
and Improve Your Bond With Him —
With This Amazing Array of Parrot Toys!
Do you want to warm the feathers of your parrot’s heart? Would you like to provide your bird with all the advantages that he needs to live a healthy, happy, well-adjusted long life?
Then you must discover the amazing advantages that merely playing with toys has to both his physical development — and his psychological health as well.
Any of you who own birds and also have been parents are already aware of how the simple of act of “playing” is vitally important to your child’s overall development.
Doesn’t it just make sense then that your bird — you could have the intelligence and development of a human 3 year old — also needs some “playtime” in order to develop properly?
Toys also help your bird combat boredom. And as you know, boredom in parrots can lead to all kinds of bad behavior from . . . squawking . . . to feather plucking . . . and more!
Like me, you’ll discover that it’s difficult to limit your selection to just one item — or even two. But the best part is, at those really low prices, you won’t “have to” limit. You’ll be able to buy as much as you want.
And then watch your parrot play for hours!
