A bird can easily become unhappy by sitting in an empty birdcage all day. Birds have solid beaks and energetic minds that need to be occupied to keep them happy and engaged. Boredom is the leading cause of plucking in birds, which leads to birds pulling out their feathers. This is why it's important to choose the appropriate swings and toys for your pet bird. When picking swings and toys for your bird, think about the following:
Size- When selecting a swing or toy for your bird, ensure that it is the appropriate size. Some swings and toys are made for small birds and aren't safe for your large bird. Larger pet birds have stronger beaks, which can easily damage toys meant for smaller birds. Broken pieces from these toys can be a potential choking hazard.
Types- Bird toys are available in different forms with different functionalities. Some toys require foraging, some encourage exercise, some are puzzles, some make noise, and some are foot toys. Some toys are meant to comfort your pet birds, while others are intended to decrease temper and frustrations. Get your bird different types of toys to keep him/her entertained. Different types of toys will also keep your bird challenged, release aggression, and keep fit.
Personality- You can know your bird's toy personality through observation. This will help you to pick the best swing and toy for your pet bird. Which types of materials, textures, colors, and/or shapes does your bird prefer? Observe how your bird engages with different toys, shades, and materials, and use your findings to make the best bird perch and toy selection that will keep your pet entertained.
Safety- Avoid poorly built perches and toys at all costs. Also, stay clear of toys with areas that could trap your birds' head or pinch your bird's toes. Keep in mind that a bird can get his little beak into anything, so ensure that the toys and perches you purchase are tough enough. This will prevent the risk of them breaking them, or even your bird swallowing the damaged items.
Toy rotation- Just like kids, birds also get bored quickly; that is why it's crucial to rotate their toys. Don't put all the toys in the cage. Instead, put a few and rotate them occasionally. Also, ensure you hide the others where he or she can't see them. After a week or so, change the toys in the cage with the surprise toys. Rotation also gives you a chance to clean up the toys without bothering the bird.

One of the great advantages to shopping locally is the personal service extended to customers. Recently I was looking for a specific dog coat. I called first and Meghan could t have been more helpful. She set aside several coats for to to look at when I. came inShe spent time with me and my dog as we tried on different sizes. I did purchase one that wasn’t exactly what I wanted. when I tried it on my dog at home it was too small so I returned it apologetically as she had taken such time with me. She was enthusiastic in her reply that they love our pets as much as we do and they want each outcome to be a happy one. Working with Meghan was a 5 star experience for sure!
