Re: Another Bella update

While you are looking for a foraging toy, you can create foraging situations with little to no supplies. I move the food dish around the cage, and outside the cage, even putting it on the floor. This helps my "Bella" move around and spend more time finding and getting her food. I also put her food in cardboard egg crates on a regular basis. I pour it in in front of her and then close it and put it on a cookie sheet in her cage. She goes right to it and tears the carton up to get her food. None of these options take lots of time or things, but they are simple things that help your bird to forage for their food. I think when you have a bird that plucks, anything you can do to keep them active helps.
