O freespin, I wasn't trying to disprove your point at all! I had actually read the reply to my prior comment and was adding a few more suggestions (I had not read other comments when I wrote that). I more meant if the op was going to use hanging type toys, don't start out with the ones where the treats are hidden, like the cardboard foraging boxes. No offense was meant to you AT ALL I have never thought about introducing a bird to foraging before starting with it's dishes. I've always kept them 2 separate activities, though your idea makes sense too

Re: should i take food dish out ?

There is a trainer that designed "foragers" for bird food bowls.... much like the "foragers" for dogs that gets dogs to eat slower. I think it's a pretty neat idea, but I don't know how often this shop has any in stock.

Great products for your companion birds



Foraging can come in any manner! I've covered food dishes, added toys to the birds food dishes, wrapped food up in mini paper cups, etc!
