|It's been a challenge keeping Jack, my Quaker Parrot,
occupied. He's got a great personality but he's too smart
for his own good. Even though I always keep a few toys
in his cage, he gets bored easily. I have to stay on top of toy
changes to keep him from squawking to remind me!
Recently, work was getting busier,
and I wasn't changing the toys as often
as normal. During water and food
changes, I noticed Jack was beginning
to pick his feathers.
One day, he had a few feathers
stuck to his beak and a small bald
patch. I knew I'd gone too long without
offering him something new. So, I
grabbed your catalog – that's
when I noticed the article on toys.
The part about treat toys really hit
home. Jack gets bored quickly with
regular toys, but if I show him a treat,
he perks right up and does anything
to get it. I thought, why not get a treat
toy to keep him occupied – something
that challenges him to get at the treat?
I ordered a bunch of treat toys, and
he LOVES them! Talk about motivation
– he never seems to get bored
with the Treat Piñata. He spends
hours pecking, shredding, and tearing
the piñata to get at the treats I put
inside. I don't see him feather picking
as much anymore either.
Thanks for the great articles and
awesome selection of toys!
