I recently had the pleasure of bird sitting for two Pionus, Ivey and Hedwig. I was told by their mom's that they hadn't much experience with food toys or foraging opportunities. I had the good fortune to be able to demonstrate some beginning foraging that I'm able to share with you.
Click on the video to see how I made a beginning food toy for Ivey and Hedwig and watch their reaction to the new toy.
Here I attempt to show you how I slowly build more complexity into food and foraging toys for Irving.
Click on the video to watch how to progress from a simple food toy to a slightly more complex one.
In this video I'm trying to show you what you could expect as you progress with incorporating more food and more shreddable items into the toys you make for your birds. I also explain a little of how I would go about getting to the intermediate forager stage. If you've got time please watch and listen to the end.
