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. With Supreme Cotton, your bird is less likely to get tangled, because it has no threads to catch toes.
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 an appropriate 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.
