Beakasaurus 7" x 15" long
Hours of Fun!!!
*I have 3 large macaws and all of them absolutely love this toy!!!*
My Scarlet (7yrs)- will destroy it the fastest, however once he gets all the wooden beads/blocks off he will then spend a few days twirling the chain running under it like its rain and then slowly he starts to bust up the chains themselves squeeling with every link he turns into a foot toy.
My Military (18yrs) is much more gentle with her toys however once she gets into it - she demolishes it with great delight. If I can catch it in time, I will restring the chain with more blocks to extend the chewing fun. She does not destroy the chain like my Scarlet.
My Hybrid (6mos) takes much more time with this toy but I suspect it is because he is still a youngster and its a matter of time. This toy however is his favorite of all the toys offered up - and he has many to choose from.
There really is no con on this one at all, if it were more durable it would not be the same. The beauty in this toy is it is soft wood and they can destroy it in good fun. There is however the reality that once you hang it up, its on borrowed time! You can get clever with restringing to extend the use if your bird does not break up the chain - it dosent have to be just with wood blocks, Children's toy parts are great from the bargain bins at good will . You can also tie things into the chain -leather, fabric (old tee shirts) etc. I also try to buy this toy in bulk when on sale as every dollar saved can go to something else for the 'fids'.
For lasting durability - I highly recommend the pendulum toy for large macaws - its a must have staple in our home with the beakasaurus more of a 'treat' toy. You can only find that toy here online, its not in the catalog.

Great chewing toy
My parrots, severe macaw and african grey tear through this. I bought this twice on sale and I felt I am getting more for my money since my guys demolish toys very quickly.

My parrots love this toy!
This is one of the only toys my parrots truly love. As soon as I take them out of the box they start dancing. Delivery is great too. My only complaint is that they chew through them fairly quickly and the cost really adds up. Even when they're on sale it's only a dollar or so off.

My McCaws love wood toys
I have purchased a lot of food and toys from Drs. Foster and Smith because when items I need go on sale they are usually good sales. I have purchased food and toys for my McCaws and they do make ''toothpicks" out of the wooden toys. Keep those sales going!
