Toys are definitely lots of fun for your parrot and help keep them stimulated and active. Some birds, however, may be a bit skittish having a new item enter their home. Here’s how to introduce your bird to a new toy and help cut down on some of the stress they may encounter with a new object.
Start by hanging the toy on the outside of the cage. You can see Sunny is already sizing it up! 😆Your bird can then test out the toy by trying to chew and touch it while still feeling safe in their home. Sunny didn’t waste anytime! ❤️
Once your bird shows an interest and has become more comfortable you can add it into their home. I will add toys to the outside of her cage because it changes up the activity while she works to get at it. Then I’ll add it inside and the fun begins all over again.
I hope this helps you gauge how your bird interacts with new toys and makes introducing new items less stressful and more!
