Shipping

How long does it take for my order to ship?
 

We normally make most orders within 8-12 business days. Large orders may take a little longer to mail, (12-15 business days) as we hand-make many of our toys to order.

What is your return policy? We have a firm no return policy on all of our items. This is a common policy amongst bird supply companies and is in effect for the safety of our customers' birds. By not accepting returns, we can guarantee that none of our toys have come into contact with any birds, therefore eliminating the threat of dangerous bird viruses being spread to your birds. We understand that it is sometimes difficult to choose the right toy for your bird... if you ever need help selecting a toy for your bird, please don't hesitate to contact us for assistance!

Do you ship internationally?
 

YES! We Ship WORLDWIDE. - however shipping outside of the USA & Canada is VERY costly and is usually around $100-150 shipping costs.  The smaller the box and lighter it is, the cheaper it is, but such as the activity cubes its a 16" x 16" x 16" box which is around $115 to ship, we cover some of the costs to offer cheaper shipping to our clients but please note we ship by ground for international orders, if you want faster shipping you will need to pay for that service we simply cannot afford to pay for the fastest option on every international order.

Types of Bird Toys

There are many bird toys available on the market and the choice is daunting to some bird owners. It is helpful to understand how various categories of toys help to enrich their feathered companion's lives. Birds should be provided with a cross section of toys from all of the following categories to ensure that their physical and mental needs are being addressed. The key categories are:

  • Foraging Toys: Foraging toys provide and excellent outlet to require your bird to work for it's food as it would have to do the majority of each day in the wild. Examples of foraging toys are those in which treats can be hidden, skewered and or imbedded. Foraging toys should be placed at a variety of levels throughout the cage to encourage movement and exploration.
  • Chewing Toys: Chewing is a major activity in the wild, especially during breeding season when birds are actively burrowing nests into tree trunks. It is imperative that birds be provided with destructible wood toys. Wood and leather toys provide hours of safe chewing fun. Remember, these toys are for your bird so don't  become alarmed or upset if over time they destroy them. Chewing is a natural activity for your bird and they should be provided an opportunity to do so. Larger birds should be challenged with harder woods. Balsa, pine or vine based materials are excellent for smaller birds.
  • Exercise Toys: Just like we humans use a lot of different equipment in a fitness club to ensure we get a full body workout, birds need a variety of toys that stimulate the exercise of different parts of their bodies. Swings and Bungees challenge their balancing skills and ladders and ropes promote legwork due to increased climbing activity.
  • Comfort Toys: In the wild, birds enjoy physical contact with their mates, often snuggling up to them on branches. Caged birds, especially when they are alone, like to snuggle up to or crawl into something soft and cuddly. This alleviates their stress and provides them with a sense of security. Examples of comfort toys are the Peek-a-boo Perch Tents and Snuggle Rings.
  • Preening Toys: Boredom and stress in caged birds can often lead to over-preening or feather pulling. Rope preening toys provide an excellent outlet for birds to satisfy their desire to preen and to discourage feather picking and mutilation.
  • Manipulative/Mechanical Toys: Birds are very intelligent and inquisitive creatures. Many are reported to enjoy untying knots, undoing nuts and bolts and deconstructing cages to escape. Providing puzzle solving toys and toys that require manipulation will stimulate these birds mentally.
  • Foot Toys: A parrot's foot is very adept at holding and grasping small items. Foot toys are small toys designed to be held easily so your parrot can enjoy manipulating and chewing various components. Providing foot toys promotes good foot dexterity as well as an excellent outlet for fun!

Not only should your bird should own a wide variety of toys but remember it is also important to rotate toys in and out of the cage weekly to stimulate curiosity and prevent boredom.
