Birds just as cats and dogs love to play. Give them any toy
to play with and they will play with it until it is not completely
destroyed. Birds are intelligent little creatures and they
need something to do with themselves. They will play with
the toys you give them and most birds will destroy their toys
completely. This is good. It helps their beaks to grow properly
and keeps them active.
Look for toys that a dyed/colored using non-toxic colors,
or food dyes. Avoid toys with soft rubber parts that your
bird might accidentally ingest. If it's a non-wood product
that you might not want a teething human to chew... you may
want to think twice before giving it to your bird.
Toys made with ropes and fabrics are WONDERFUL but play with
toys needs to be supervised and you need to trim them when
they get too frayed. This is to avoid toes or heads from getting
tangled. You should also rotate your bird's toys at least
once a month for variety. Take a few toys out of the cage
and replace them with others... your toys will last a little
bit longer and your bird will stay busy and interested.
