Best Parrotlet Bird Toys

Parrotlet Sized basketball bird toy 150x150 Best Parrotlet Bird ToysPretty, precocious and extremely social parrotlets might be small but they have a big appetite for small parrotlet bird toys. The trouble is finding small bird toys full of gusto.  Little plastic wheels and woobly penguins that attach to a perch are not clever enough for our bright, miniature parrotlets.

Parrotlets love to preen, nibble and chew. They love to rattle and ring their bird toys.  Parrotlets are smart enough to play with engaging, thought provoking bird toys.  Yes, these little wizards are smart enough to shoot hoops with the JW Pet Birdie Basketball Hoop with the Jayhawks top notch NCAA Basketball team! (Rock Chalk Jayhawks!) Did you know that you can teach your parrotlet to ride a skateboard?

Our beloved parrotlet, Mika, is getting up there in age, but she still has had a few favorite bird toys over the years.  We’ve noticed that our jealous little Mika enjoys these activities in particular:

  1. Rattling, clanking and ringing bird toys:  Mika loves to make noise.  Maybe it’s because she can’t squawk very loud.  Even her chirps are quietly musical.  So, she likes her bird toys to get my attention. Mika, our parrotlet, is drawn to bird toys that she can ring and clink.  Plus, she loves to engage in an awkward perch whereas she literally sleeps in her fuzzy  or clanking bird toys. The JW Basketball lets your parrotlet perch on the hoop and bang the ball about.  With a couple of Clicker training for Birds sessions your little Larry Bird will be dunking the ball.

  2. Natural Fibers: Skinny grapevine, coconut fibers and baby palm leaf are amongst Mika’s favorite parrotlet sized bird toys.  This little gal loves to preen her bird toys, so anything with stringy fibers is preferred.  Notice how your parrotlet preens your hair.  These very social parrots are feisty yet incredibly loving. If you allow your parrotlet  ride your shoulder or conceal itself in It your pocket simply for the joy of being near you, you’ll have a loyal friend.  With both of these activities, your parrotlet is enjoying warm fuzzy feelings by preening and hiding in your hair or chewing on the fibers in your pocket. Bird toys featuring supreme cotton, yucca fibers and coconut fibers are preferred. These skinny fibers are parrotlet sized, easy to chew and preen yet difficult to knot about busy toes.

These little parrots are assertive and territorial pet birds with really big feelings. They bond deeply.
