Balsa Slats Natural Soft wood for Small birds, 24pk

Balsa Slats Natural Soft wood for Small birds, 24pk


Easy to shred softwood slats for the smallest of beaks

:  at  £6.95  each

Balsa is a big hit with little birds because they can shred it. Whether you turn it into a toy,  add it to perch or simply include it in their toy boxes, it is sure to delight. Just check out Ollie on his perch with Squiggles.

Also ideal if your parrot does not have the beak strength to enjoy other softwoods.

We make all our blocks using the highest quality balsa so size and shapes will vary slightly due to the fact they are not mass produced by machines.

Please allow 14 working days for dispatch due to high demand.

Also available in Lime Green, Vibrant Yellow, Zesty Orange, Fuchsia Pink, Teal, Purple, Green, Red & Blue

Quantity - 24 Slats. 

Approx Dimensions - 25mm x 70mm x 6.4mm with a 3mm hole.

Materials - Natural Balsa with nothing added

Size Suitable for - Mini to Small Parrots.

Shredability - This is the softest wood for little beaks to get into and they just love it, unfortunately you will need plenty of refills.

Just a thought...

This is so shreddable, so be sure to stack lots of it together or combine it with acrylics and pine for a longer lasting toy.

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.
