Safe non toxic coloured hardwood dowels for medium to extra large parrots

Out of stock.

Use Colourful Wooden Dowels for making new toys, repairing or revamping existing toys which will stimulate your Parrots interests. Threaded onto leather strips for Chewing fun, as a foot toy for the large Parrots such as Amazons & Greys  - or just let your Parrot have fun rolling them about outside the cage (for you to pick up!).

Quantity - This pack contains 16 dowelss of assorted colours.

Dimensions - 10cm x 1.5cm Daimeter with a 1cm hole.

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

Suitable for - Medium to Extra Large Parrots.

Chewability - In our opinion, being Hardwood, medium beaks may not get as much fun out of destroying these but they do add good colour and when combined with other soft woods you have a durable element to a toy that may not need replacing as often.

Just a thought...from Ernie

Although these balls are safe for Medium to Extra Large Parrots, what about their chew value.  "Our Ernie" a Blue Fronted Amazon, is classed as large and he thinks they are great but only when combined with other softwoods or bagels which he can really get his beak into.  He does get his beak into these but quickly looses interest with toys that are all hardwood. 

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.
