TOYS & SWINGS

Playing with toys is important to parrotlets. Bored parrotlets will can become depressed. They need entertainment and exercise. Parrotlets require many forms of activity. Allowing your parrotlet to sit in its cage and do nothing all day will ensure behavioral problems. Swings and boings are not enough. They enjoy colorful and fun toys to chew and shred. Toys with color, chewable parts, knots to untie, and movable parts work best. Always make sure the parts are all bird safe:

  • Cotton rope should be unbleached, fluffy & not cordage
  • Any coloring should be non-toxic
  • Metal parts should be stainless steel or nickel plated steel
  • Wood should be natural & untreated
  • Leather should be vegetable tanned & untreated
Rotating toys is important. Move toys around in the cage to different areas to keep them interested. Adding new toys weekly keeps parrotlets stimulated. A variety of shapes and materials should satisfy these inquisitive birds. Destroying a toy gives them something to do and deters them from becoming bored. Offer as many different types of toys as possible and rotate often. Provide toys that contain lots of different parts to shred and various parts to chew. As toys are being rotated, they should be washed and clean before they are put in the new location.
Parrotlets love swings. Most prefer to hang out on a swing than a perch. Although you should always keep perches in their cages to give their feet exercise. Swings move like branches do in the wild. Parrotlets can be very playful. They will climb all over the swing and even hang upside down from them! It can be quite comical to watch! As you can see in the picture below, parrotlets love to snuggle together as they swing.
