Taking care of green cheek conures is not just feeding and clipping wings. We have to provide them with challenging tasks every day so as to develop their cognitive abilities. It is our duty as pet owners to bring the best out of our birds so that they can give us their best. When we provide them with a full attention which includes entertainment, we can be sure our bird will be an irreplaceable companion in our lives. One part of enticing them is to give them toys. Here are seven must-have green cheek conure toys.
Cage Swing Hanging Toy by Vktech
Obviously, kids are not the only ones who can enjoy endless rides on swings. With this toy, you can turn your birds’ cage into a ‘’park”. Your pets will be able to indulge in the fun of this swing for hours if you train them well by giving them treats from time to time! It is made of vegetable dyed perches and pony beads which are beautifully colored. It is very easy to install inside the cage, has bright colors and will definitely bring the whole new outlook to it.
The only concern we have with this product is the steel. Apparently, it is not stainless which can be dangerous if your birds chew on it. Therefore, check with the provider if they have any knowledge about the metal. Otherwise, we recommend changing this part with something you undoubtedly know is bird-friendly.
- The toy is entertaining.
- It empowers your conure physically.
- The swing is brightly colored.
- It is easy to install.
- The metal is of disputable quality.
Bonka Bird Toys 1914 Basket Swing
If you’re OK with a bit of ‘old-school’ design then this product is just the right thing for you and your bird. The swing is made of 2 parts. The first one would be a naturally woven basket. It is great for small birds. Not only can your parrots have fun in here by swinging but they can also simply rest and chill in there. The basket is suspended with colorful solid link plastic chain and decorated with moveable plastic rings.
The downfall of this product would be that it can get torn apart within minutes. This is what will happen if you have birds who like to chew a lot or are too big. Having this in mind you’d have to be very careful when choosing this in order not to waste your money. A toy made for multiple breeds and sizes is always recommendable: it targets a wider audience and more customers will be happy.
- The swing is made of non-toxic materials.
- It is multifunctional.
- Easily put in the cage.
- Very decorative.
- It is exclusively for small birds
Colorful Ladder Bird Toy by OnePlus
This is one more of those toys that stimulate different senses in your birds. The colors are very visually interesting which is important for catching the attention of your feathery friend. There’s steel wire throughout the whole toy. The most important thing is that it is made of natural wood which means the ladder won’t put your bird in any life-threatening situation. What will challenge your parrot at a mental level is that the spacing between the bars is moderate which means they’ll have to put a bit more effort in using it in the right way.
If you have birds which like to chew this is unfortunately not the best choice. The wood can be chewed through pretty easily so make sure that you know your bird well before buying this. This is for really small birds only.
- Great mental and physical exercise.
- All natural materials.
- The wood is pretty soft and can be demolished easily.
Wood Perch Toy Playground Stand by Keersi
This is a great multifunctional toy for your bird. We said multifunctional because it not only provides your birds with additional playground but this can also be a great landing ground and rest ground too. Natural wood only is put in the product.
The size of the perch can be too small for some birds though. This could actually irritate your bird and it will eventually tear it apart. Although green cheeks are usually small sized, if they have strong beaks it ending story for the toy may be the same.
- Provides a nice activity place and a relaxing place at the same time.
- Bird-friendly material.
- Not strong which makes it unfit for birds with strong beaks or big birds.
62801 Naturals Coco Hideaway with Ladder Bird Toy
This is a toy made by a well-known company that has been working towards the well-being of animals in general for years. It is handmade of natural materials of different textures. The variety of textures will provide your birds’ beaks and legs with great exercise.
The toy practically has 2 parts: the hideaway part which is made of coconut and a ladder made of sustainable hevea branches and sisal rope. It is easily connected to the cage and will provide your bird with great mental exercise too.
This is probably the best all natural product you can go for. Not every bird toy is this simple yet very mentally and physically challenging. There are no major flaws in it and we’re happy to recommend such a high-quality, all natural product.
- Made of sustainable, natural materials.
- Represents a great physical and mental exercise.
- Easily attached to the cage.
As much as we would like to give our little feathery companions a healthy and joyful life, we have to be careful about the toys that we buy them. Not every toy is for every bird. Most of the toys mentioned on the list are not made for bigger birds (that would have been cool though!). With that in mind, take the bird’s size into consideration when purchasing a bird toy. You also have to observe its character. If the bird is the ‘’chewing’’ type of a bird then make sure you investigate the materials the toy is made of. Birds are overall highly sensitive to chemicals which could kill them in an instant if you don’t pay close attention. Most of the products here are completely pet-friendly. However, the Pervue Hendrix product may be your best bet if you want to make sure your birds are playing in a toxin-free environment.
