Perches provide a surface for your parakeet's feet to grip when it lands. Providing a variety of perches (usually made of natural materials such as wood) offers crucial climbing and gripping challenges that are fundamental to good physical health in birds.
Hanging Cage Toys & Foraging Toys
Foraging toys for birds are designed to help birds use their natural instincts as hunters and foragers while also stimulating new behaviors. Foraging toys are designed to help birds explore. The material of the toy and the shape can both affect how well a bird sticks with it. Birds will look for things to peck at, pull, and shred. Be sure to offer toys that have been made from durable materials and ones that have plenty of items for them to poke around in and get under.
Cuttlefish Bones & Mineral Blocks
Cuttlefish and mineral blocks are great for beak conditioning. We have written a post all about them here.
Parakeet playgrounds or play gyms are elevated structures that have feeders, water dishes, perches, and swings. These are great for when you let your bird out of its cage so it has a designated spot to perch.
