Great For Nuts

I bought this for my Cockatoo and as a rule, items like this do not tend to last very long... but to my surprise this product is still going strong. It is great for storing her almonds, separate to her complete food. I did learn not to put any pistachios, her favourite nut, amongst the almonds, as she emptied the complete ball to obtain the pistachios! Would recommend this product

Great idea, our grey is playing with it on the sofa wedged up to get him used to it, he has already worked out how to take the top button off. Good and sturdy.

My tiels, or at least some of them are using this. some of them turn to it each morning when they wake up before I get their food dishes back in the cage. I now deliberately leave them out longer so they can forage and eat the myriad of treats inside. I hope theystart getting them from the bottom as well as the top now that Ive put it higher up. They seem to enjoy it.ll

Enriching And Fun!

My boring amazon parrot never plays with conventional toys so I bought this to try and liven him up a bit. He loves it - it did not take him long to work out how to remove the food, but still enriches his brain trying to get bigger pieces like walnuts and almonds. It fits his Harrisons cubes, so I put all his daily dry foods and treats in and it takes him longer to remove bits and pieces than if they were just sat in a dish. Overall, his mood has even improved. Bonus for a parrot that hates toys! P.S. My bird has never tried to break it - the plastic is extremely durable and he has not even noticed the push-button mechanism on the top.

I am very disappointed with this buffet ball. My grey managed to break the self locking plastic piece, that prevents the ball from being removed from the metal rod, in under one minute. I am,therefore, left with a a foraging ball that is completely unfit for purpose.I can only see this ball being of use to owners of very small birds with little or no strength in their bills.I do not recommend this product at all.

i have several of these toys .i found only 2 minor problems, compared to the great play value my birds have.one is every single one of the squares on the top are now missing even my senegal managed to pull it off and like other reviews have said it does loosen and spin round but it only takes seconds to tighten it up again .some foraging toys are just too big or complicated for lets put it this way not the sharpest knives in the drawer ,so these are great as they are not too taxing to work out. also unlike the big wheels who,s attachment on the back snap off leaving these expensive toys unusable because you have no way of attaching them to the cage as they are plastic the balls are much stronger all in all a good buy.

I put this in my CAGs cage filled it with harrisons & place some almonds on top of the harrisons right in the middle. thought it would mean he had to eat all the harrisons first before the nuts dropped out. When I came home he'd eaten all the nuts & the harrisons hadnt moved lol. I am sure he was grinning at me. he now turns to this before his food bowl so must be enjoying it.

BEAUTIFUL STURDY TOY. I COULD'NT GET IT APART.HOWEVER MY BLUE & GOLD BROKE OPEN THE TOP SELF LOCKING CUBE IN SECONDS THIS SENT THE LOT CRASHING TO THE GROUND THE BALL IN TWO HALVES. ALL SALVAGED EXCEPT THE SELF LOCKING CUBE... WOULD HAVE TO BE REGLUED TO RESTART THE WHOLE PROCESS.IF YOUR MACAW IS AS POWERFULL & DESTRUCTIVE AS MINE IT WILL LAST ONLY SECONDS BUT..FOR ANY SMALLER BIRD IT'S A LOVELY CLEAN LOOKING VERY VERSATILE TOY!

Too Flimsy

My cockatoo, Tilly, gets very bored so I though this an ideal way for her to get some treats. Although it is secured tightly to the cage, it does turn and ends up up-side-down and then pulled apart and at the bottom of the cage. It rotates too easily and lasted just a few days.

My Greys were using the Buffet Ball within a couple of minutes of it being in their cage! They have already managed to pull the top off above the ball but this isn't a problem as I've got the ball placed high up in their cage and they can't pull the ball off.

Fabulous toy - Rambo, my Red Lored Amazon, took to it straight away, trying to get the bits of paper and treats I placed into the ball. She enjoys spinning the ball and trying to get the items out of the ball. Keeps her occupied.

A great all round toy, the buffet ball is built to be instructable!I must of dropped it several times and it's still going without a scratch so it can withstand some hardy beaks.When it first arrived embarrassingly I couldn't work out how to open it myself and had to seek help from other parrot lovers but once I worked it out it was a breeze.They are fun to fill, we even thread paper in and out of the gaps to add a extra edge of foraging, all our birds enjoy it even budgies, though their little beaks are a big advantage into getting out any goodies!The mount is handy for collecting mess and some of my birds even sit on it!I love that's it's made of stainless steel and would will buy more in the future

Best imaginative foraging toy

My grey LOVES this toy! It was a bit bigger and sturdy than I expected! I had to remove one of the fruit bowls in the cage to make space for this amazing creation. My grey is very clever and has had no trouble removing the clips on the foraging wheel, sphere, fruit kabobs etc. But this one is literally impossible to remove, but however if your parrot does remove the toy there is no harm done as the feeder itself is indestructable lol. The top is released by pressing the pin (which I had trouble doing at first because I did'nt read the instructions!)What I love about this toy is it is very versatile and unique! You can use it as a feeding station or a toy! Here are some ideas if you plan to get this:1. Remove ball and place a whole apple on the tray and use as a fruit kabob! No waste as the food drops onto the tray! Try other fruits too!2. Remove ball and replace with the Seek 'n' Find foraging boxes!3. Remove ball and thread some toys on there! (ie: wood, paper, till rolls, different coloured plastic links, hoops are fun too!)4. If you want to hide small treats but it keeps falling out of the holes in the ball just remove the ball and replace with a empty yoghurt pot/plastic cup and turn it upside down and hide treats in there!5. IF YOU DON'T MIND A LITTLE MESS. You could drill a hole at the bottom of a empty yoghurt pot then place it on the tray and then scoop some yoghurt in and watch your parrot feed themselves! No need to worry about your parrot tossing the pot out and it is securely held in place on the holder! (please keep yoghurt to a minimum though, it's really for fun purposes only and huge amount is not good for your bird)6. Drill a hole under a pot of Le Grass Cafe and place on the tray and just watch what happens! (I can't guarantee you will be able to use the pot again lol)Those are just some ideas so I hope it helps! I would love to hear your ideas too! This toy/feeder is definately a good investment! So if your parrot is very clever removing clips on other foraging toys like mine then this feeder is definately a challenge for your bird to remove!
