About Supreme Cotton
Supreme Cotton can help ease your worries about rope toys. It is made with short, fuzzy fibers, which pull apart into cotton puffs. This rope is infinitely preen-able and is easy on your hands. Some birds get toes or claws stuck in the fibers or regular cotton rope and if you are not observant of your bird's health and habits, it can cause abrasions and worse should your bird struggle to get untangled. With Supreme Cotton, your bird is less likely to get tangled, because it has no threads to catch toes.
With Supreme Cotton Rope, birds simply pick at the loosely woven threads and it makes puffs of cotton that just float away, like down. Best of all, birds adore playing with this rope.
Birds spend their time in the wild on four main activities: foraging, social interaction, sleeping, and feather care. Our pet birds still retain these instincts. Self-preening and preening of other birds is included in this feather care. A healthy bird will preen daily and use a gland above his tail to glean oil for protecting his feathers. He will carefully clean each of his many feathers and do it daily. Over preening can lead to feather picking and may be caused by behavioral problems such as boredom.
When you provide your bird with a safe preening toy, you can awaken his instinct to preen, even if you have an "only bird" and, along with providing other distractions such as social interaction with you and foraging opportunities, you may be able to stop feather-picking behavior before it even starts.
If your bird is under constant stress, it may lead to fatigue, illness, weight loss, a weakened immune system, deteriorated plumage, or more. Protect your precious pet from the negative effects of stress.
Even in the cleanest cage, unclean toys and accessories increase the likelihood of transmitting harmful bacteria and disease. We recommend you clean toys and accessories weekly, right along with your cage-cleaning regimen.
