Caitec Paradise Reinforcement Foraging Wheel Parrot Toy

Caitec Paradise Reinforcement Foraging Wheel Parrot Toy

Wheel has a rotating top with two 1/2" by 1" slots through which birds may retrieve their favorite snacks. Your bird will learn to rotate the toy so that the openings are over the material they wish to retrieve.

All of the Virtually Parrot Proof Foraging Devices are made of strong polycarbonate with stainless steel. They are safe, strong and best of all easy to use. The Creative Foraging Systems concept is really quite simple.

A user friendly, cost effective system for feeding companion birds which requires the birds to work for their food as they would in the wild. More time engaging in healthy, time consuming activity means less time available for other potentially harmful activities or undesirable behaviors such as feather picking, excessive screeching etc.

A polycarbonate feeding device is available in both horizontal and vertical configurations and holds a USDA approved chipboard box. Inside the box is the key to foraging and making your bird work for food. A honeycomb insert retains the food and only makes more food available as the parrot continues to chew thru the honeycomb wafer.

To maximize the benefits of this system try using multiple feeding stations in various locations. Encourage environmental exploration and promote search instinct by regularly changing the location of the feeding stations.

The CFS challenge is to dramatically increase the amount of time companion birds spend searching for and acquiring food.

Foraging is the instinctive behavior of searching for and obtaining food... All animals must forage for food in order to survive, grow to maturity, reproduce and raise young. In their natural environment birds spend 50 to 70 percent of the daylight hours foraging; this may include traveling to and from preferred patch locations, defining resources, climbing and accessing a resource, manipulating and preparing the resource for consumption. The demands of food acquisition impose significant challenges to both the physiology and behavior of birds Efficient foraging is a result of decisions regarding patch choice, patch exploitation strategy, selection of resources, and size of foraging flock ( parrots are extremely social and generally live and travel in large groups or flocks ) these interactions within the environment are not only mentally stimulating but also require a tremendous amount of vigorous physical exercise.
