Here in New York, I’ve had a really hard time getting around without it taking all day… and there’s a Petco super close to us that is convenient but has a terrible selection.

So on my last trip there for the summer, I decided to get a little creative. I remembered my friend Patty (who also blogs here) said something about how she almost bought some small animal toys for her birds because the selection was so bad at a store she went to. I thought about this hard, and decided to go look at the selection for animals like rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs and other small creatures.

To my surprise, I found some things that would work for my birds as well! And I happily got them. I wanted to share them with you, so that if you’re in the same situation as me, your birds can go on enjoying new and exciting toys nonetheless!

The first toys I found were the ones pictured above, they have one walnut in the center of each of them. Perfectly fine for birds.

Military Macaw

Other things I found were mats like this one where the birds can use it as a preening toy, and just more or less take it apart like Cash, our military macaw, is starting to do in this picture.

Rose Breasted Cockatoos

The one that most excited me though, was the organic (USDA certified) wheat grass in the stores that was already grown and freshly green! I’ve gotten bird ones before, and posted videos of which, but this one was for cats. I read and looked closer, and it was labeled good for birds and other small animals as well and isn’t treated with anything at all. I was so excited I bought one for each of my smaller birds who dug right in.

Check out the video at the top of this post to see more toys I found that work as bird toys!

  • I was at PetCo yesterday, and I didn’t think of the going to the rodent section. Unfortunately, it is the only pet store within 50 miles of my home, and they had a horrible selection. I can’t wait until my order from you guys shows up, and then I know my military macaw, Apocalypse will have something good to destroy. I did get this long braid of palm tree fronds that are dyed, Shredders. I also got a log for parakeets to hollow out for nests, and he is having fun destroying that, too. I will have to see what they have in other areas of the store next time.

  • Wow! I saw the pics of Jinx with the wood and walnut toy and wondered right away where you got that from. Great idea. I can’t wait to try some of these ((( – = I’m always trying to find something new to keep them entertained.

  • When I was a kid, my grandma had a little pot to sprout birdseed in for her canary. It was about an inch in diameter and would hook onto the cage bars. There was a plastic grate over the dirt part so the bird couldn’t dig it up and it could be used over and over. They don’t make these anymore. Does anyone else remember these?
