Creative Foraging Systems - What The Experts Say...

I recently had a chance to try out some Creative Foraging devices with my own Blue and Gold Macaw Sam as well as with various Parrot species owned by friends of mine. What fun!

My own Sam is crazy about her Foraging Wheel and uses it every day. It keeps her happily busy for hours at a time.

She is still working on the Foraging Capsule and has yet to figure it out, which is great, as it is keeping her occupied.

My avian veterinarian tried out various sizes of Foraging Systems with three birds:

Her Blue-fronted Amazon, Jenday and Senegal. All three birds are having a wonderful time with these – especially the Senegal, who had never learned to forage before. My vet is hoping to sell the Foraging Systems through her hospital, as they are so easy that she is certain her clients will follow through and use them.

My friend’s African Grey is also very happy with her Foraging System, but her absolute favourite is the Foraging Sphere.

Creative Foraging Systems are designed to provide foraging for a Parrot’s entire diet throughout the day, which is the most natural way to feed them.

Properly trained, Parrots are happy foraging for all their food, not just treats. A friend’s Grey is an excellent forager, happily foraging despite the same exact diet being available in her food bowls

Truly, foraging has become a self-rewarding behaviour for her, and this is the ideal I am seeking with my Sam.

From my experience, the Creative Foraging products are great systems for helping Parrots keep mentally healthy and happily occupied, and I can’t wait to try all their other foraging products.
