Customize any of your bird's toys with this cotton rope. This rope can help ease your worries about rope toys. It is made with short, fuzzy fibers, which pull apart into cotton puffs. This rope is ideal for use on toys, is infinitely preen-able, and is easy on your hands.
You may have concerns about rope toys- 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.
Supreme Cotton lets you make your own outstanding preening toys with parts from our Build your Own collection. 10 ft long rope of differing widths allow you to create, repair, or add to toys. We do not recommend using Supreme Cotton with large blocks or other heavy items.
Note: As with any toy, monitor your bird when you initially offer it and remove if he appears to be chewing and ingesting it.

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.
Interacting with your bird is every bit as important as providing an interesting environment. The secret to keeping your bird happy is the frequency of attention, not the duration. A few minutes of attention several times daily 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.
