At one time or another, we have all seen a parrot pounding away on a Stimulating Bird Toy, or carefully attempting to dismantle the chewable sections of a hanging toy.
Watching these delightful creatures play, while admiring their colorful plumage, and in awe of their attempts to mimic human speech, is probably why we brought a parrot home to begin with.
Unfortunately, after the initial period of paying a lot of attention to our new feathered friend, we get caught up in the daily routine of work and family affairs.
We tend to forget we have an exotic bird in our household who needs a daily dose of Stimulating Parrot Toys to fill the void in time when we aren't nearby.
Parrots get bored very quickly, when left alone with nothing to do. A bored bird can turn into an un-friendly beast, and too many households have to give up their avian pets simply due to that kind of neglect.
Anyone considering bringing home one of these wonderful pets should first plan out how to entertain and keep their parrots active while they are away.
A wide variety chewable, non-destructible, and foraging toys are available to prevent your bird from getting bored.
At least three totally different types of toys should be in any bird's cage. These toys can a should be rotated and / or replaced with new ones periodically when the bird stops playing with any particular toy.
Making your own toys with parrot toy parts that you can buy, or from pieces of bird safe wood, leather etc are a good option for those who are handy and creative.
Whatever your motives are for keeping a pet bird in your home, it is vital for your bird's mental and physical health to always give him a large dose of Stimulating Parrot Toys to pass the time of day.
