Here’s our guide to toys for Meyer’s and Senegals.
There are lots of different toys for your Meyer’s or Senegal to play with. Here we look at the different styles available and the most popular from each category.
A natural instinct for most Meyer’s or Senegal Parrots is to go foraging for food and chewable or reusable foraging toys let them indulge in this behaviour.
With chewable foraging toys they need to chew or shred their way through to get to the prize within and reusable foraging toys have a puzzle for a Meyer’s or Senegal to solve to uncover their reward.
The fun looking Unicorn Pinata comes with some treats inside, or you can add more.
The Treasure Hunt comes prefilled with lots of wood shapes for your Meyer’s or Senegal to find by moving them through the holes.
