Macaw Foot Toys
Foot toys happen to be some of my
favorite things for birds to play with. They are fairly easy to introduce
and help parrots to learn the concepts of play, chew and coordination. I
also like them because they allow you to interact with your parrot. One of
things we have done with our guys since babyhood is to give them a selection of
foot toys and "play" with them and the toys on a flat surface.
It is interesting to note that the foot toy you are playing with always seems to
be much more attractive than the one that they have, hence they must have THAT
one immediately. Missy, our Timneh, is the funniest as she will take every
toy you pick up away from you, put it in a pile and sit on it or over it so you
can't take it back.
These foot toys are appropriately
sized for Macaws and larger Cocktoos.

This is designed for the foot toy enthusiast who likes something a
little different in their foot toys. It is also recommended for birds
that pluck or mutilate their feathers. It consists of brightly colored
cotton fabric (vivid Hawaiian prints and solid colors), a hardwood dowel
with a pine square and hardwood beads strung on cotton rope.

Spot Foot Toys #5-4M
These toys are 2" brightly colored pine squares with

Beat Foot Toys #5-5M
Jungle Beat Foot Toys will make your bird want to break out
the warpaint and dance around the tribal campfire. Well maybe
we're exaggerating a bit, but your bird is sure to love these
toys! A jumbo wooden spool is the "handle" on this
toy, while the body is a small slice of hard Guava with wood
turnings. The stringing material is leather lace and some bushy
sisal is provided for preening.
