Toys should be cleaned weekly. Remove from cage and wipe off toy with warm, soapy water. Allow toys to dry completely before returning them to your bird's cage. It is a good idea to have two or more sets of toys so clean, dry ones can be quickly placed back in the cage while the other set dries. Discard any toy that does not come clean, is frayed, or broken.
Playtime Recommendations: Interacting with your bird is every bit as important as providing an interesting environment. The key to keeping your bird happy is the frequency of attention, not the duration. A few minutes of attention every half hour or so works wonders to relieve stress. Mental growth comes from engaging in a variety of life experiences. Experiment to discover the types of toys your bird finds the most interesting and challenging. Keep in mind that no matter which toys you provide, and regardless of how intriguing, your bird will eventually tire of them. It is important not to place too many toys in the cage at once, which may over-stimulate your bird and cause stress. It's better to choose a select few and to rotate them every few days.
