Boredom doesn't bode well for birds – or their owners. Keeping your feathered friend occupied with an assortment of bird toys can help prevent both physical and behavioural problems. Bird toys come in many forms, but most can be categorized as destructible, indestructible, or physical activity toys. Destructible bird toys are usually made of natural materials and are designed to be taken apart, giving birds a safe and satisfying outlet for instinctual chewing and shredding. While indestructible bird toys like spoons or mirrors aren't actually indestructible, they're generally made of metal or plastic and are intended to be a semi-permanent bird cage fixture. Physical activity toys like swings and ladders can help birds get up and moving. Choosing brightly colored toys will help boost interest. Remember to pick a toy that’s appropriate for your bird's size and cage dimensions.
