Preening Toy, Little Pegsby


Great for in or on top of the cage

Optional Stainless Steel Cage Mount Set:

:  at  £8.95  each

Little Pegsby is a cage mounted toy filled with easy and medium shredding toy parts, including colourful pine pegs, spools and leather knots but there is still the soft balsa and paper rope.

It is a great preening toy for Budgies, Cockatiels, Ringnecks and similar sized parrots but it is also a great option for those bigger beaks that may need coaxing into play or have beaks that are not at full strength due to age or special needs.

If you have a parrot that needs tempting or struggles with conventional toys please get in touch and we will be happy to work with you to try and find the right combination and size to try and enrich your individual feathered friends play time.

Made to order so please allow 14 working days for dispatch.

Toy base available without Steel Fixings as these are reusable.

Approx Dimensions -  15cm x 15cm x 30mm

Materials - Kiln Dried Pine, Balsa, Crinkle, Birdie Bangles, Paper Rope, Veg Tanned Leather 

Suitable for - All,  but the bigger the beak the quicker it will be demolished. Not ideal for the inside of small cages.

Shredability - Highly shreddable elements combined with some birch shapes and if your parrot doesn't destroy the pine base then you can always refill it.

Just a thought
You can mount this toy horizontal, vertical or even diagonally so you can always turn it about to keep things interesting for them. Also great for mounting on the outside of the cage.
