A bird can easily become unhappy by sitting in an empty birdcage all day. Birds have strong beaks and active minds that need to be occupied to keep them happy and engaged. Boredom is the leading cause of plucking in birds, which leads to birds pulling out their feathers. This is why it's essential to choose the appropriate swings and toys for your pet bird. When selecting swings and toys for your bird, consider the following:
Size- When choosing a swing or toy for your bird, make sure that it is the appropriate size. Some swings and toys are made for little birds and aren't safe for your large bird. Larger pet birds have more powerful beaks, which can easily break toys meant for smaller birds. Broken pieces from these toys can be a possible choking hazard.
Types- Bird toys are available in different forms with different functionalities. Some toys require foraging, some encourage exercise, some are puzzles, some make noise, and some are foot toys. Some toys are meant to comfort your pet birds, while others are intended to reduce rage and stress. Get your bird different types of toys to keep him/her entertained. Different types of toys will also keep your bird challenged, release aggressiveness, and keep fit.
Personality- You can know your bird's toy personality through observation. This will assist you to pick the most effective swing and toy for your pet bird. Which types of materials, textures, colors, and/or shapes does your bird favor? Observe how your bird engages with different toys, colors, and materials, and use your findings to make the best bird perch and toy selection that will keep your pet entertained.
Safety- Avoid improperly built perches and toys at all costs. Also, stay clear of toys with areas that could trap your birds' head or pinch your bird's toes. Keep in mind that a bird can get his little beak into anything, so ensure that the toys and perches you purchase are tough enough. This will prevent the risk of them damaging them, and even your bird swallowing the busted pieces.
Toy rotation- Just like kids, birds also get bored quickly; that is why it's essential to rotate their toys. Don't put all the toys in the cage. Instead, put a few and rotate them occasionally. Also, ensure you hide the others where he or she can't see them. After a week or so, change the toys in the cage with the hidden toys. Rotation also gives you a chance to clean up the toys without bothering the bird.
