In the wild, birds spend lots of time playing. They strip bark from trees, swing on vines, and fling leaves and twigs. Treats and toys provide a substitute to what is found in the wild. Toys and treats offer reward, exercise, and relief from boredom for your birdie. Specifically, toys can help your bird in the following ways:
- Mental Heath: Playing is essential for healthy mental development. Birds who aren’t intellectually stimulated may display stressful behaviors like feather picking, screaming, and biting. Exposure to a wide variety of objects encourages the bird to be more confident and less fearful.
- Physical Health: Toys encourage movement and muscle contractions that increase blood circulation, coordination and dexterity. Toys can be outlet for natural aggression and an opportunity to spend energy.
