Barney is a toy for those small beaks that are looking for a varied shredding experience. With easy to shred Balsa, Cactus and Palm, some more challenging Pine slices and plenty of durable Acrylic and Hardwood Beads. There are also 4, 2 hole VTL Triangles that are really easy to top up.

Once destroyed just fill it right back up again with your parrots favourite combination. Please be sure to double check the dimensions if it is intended for a smaller cage. 

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

We made this in June 2015 for Barney a Baby Beak Budgie who already loved balsa but needed some more challenging items thrown into the mix.
