Featherland Colourful Wooden Slats Medium, 29pk


Safe non toxic coloured softwood slats for mini to large parrots

:  at  £8.95  each

You can use these Colourful Wooden Slats to challenge your creative side by creating new toys, repairing or revamping existing toys which will stimulate your Parrots interests. Threaded onto leather strips for Chewing fun or as part of a foot toy for the large Parrots.

Quantity - This pack contains 29 slats of assorted colours.

Dimensions - 5cm x 3.5cm x 7mm with a 1cm hole.

Materials - Bird safe coloured wood. Colours will run when wet.

Suitable for - Mini to Large Parrots.

Chewability - In our opinion, being softwood, these are great for all beaks  even the extra small, but they may not last long with the medium beaks never mind the large ones. Great for adding a splash of colour but may need to be replaced often even for the small parrots. Try combining them with other woods and toy parts for a longer lasting toy that still offers a fabulous chewing experience.

Just a thought... from the motley crew

These slats are safe for Extra Small to Large Parrots but what about their chew value.  "Our Ernie" a Blue Fronted Amazon, is classed as large has them in this hanging and foot toys but he also loves to just pick one up for a quick chew. They are the perfect size for "Our Tiels" as part of their hanging toys, activity perches and swings. However "Our Storm" goes through these quicker than the small cubes when on a cage bar toy but as part of a toy containing other goodies they can last him a couple of weeks.

Every bird is different but by knowing your birds individual play habits and beak strength, it will help you create toys that are multi-faceted. Try using a combination of durable and shreddable parts for maximum enjoyment.
