Balsa Surprise is ideal for medium to large sized parrots that need something they can actually destroy. With 3 Large Balsa Cubes We have added a few medium to hard parts in to create a little challenge and they can always be reused if they survive. 

It is a great shredding toy to keep beaks busy but it may also work for those slightly bigger beaks that may need coaxing into play or have beaks that are not at full strength due to age or special needs .

Made to order so please allow 10 - 14 working days for dispatch.
