Looking to exchange acrylic foraging toys!
 
Kiwi loves his foraging toys, but has never been particularly fond of this one for some reason. Figured I'd throw it up here and see if anyone wants to swap for a similar acrylic foraging toy or other acrylic toy appropriate for an amazon sized bird. There is a teeny tiny amount of rust inside the "x" on the screws (like, pull out your magnifying glass small amount). Toy is otherwise in great shape, and I just washed it this morning (stock image from online, my phone camera is a POS and not uploading)!

Ooh April, Griffin would love that one. His foraging treat container is too easy for him. Only thing is, the one I'd have available for exchange is one that I believe you already have.... the Rings of Fortune. They all hate that one. I'm not crazy about it either.

Oh Gracie can teach em all about that one - it's dubbed the Banger Rings in our house... when she doesn't get what she wants she grabs it and bangs it repeatedly against her cage.. loudly... pausing every few bangs to check if anyone is taking notice. She uses the same banging technique to try and force the Turn & Learn forager to open. She's stubborn & will not actually attempt to solve puzzles lol she'll watch me put treats in & put them together all the while clucking & telling me to "Stop It"

She doesn't seem to like anything acrylic - prolly cause she can't destroy it in 10 seconds flat.

Yup we have the rings of fortune one. In fact, I don't know that there are too many foraging toys we don't have. Do you have any other acrylic toys? Maybe some of the scooter z stuff they didn't like?

Kiwi loves the acrylic ones. Probably because he can see the treat inside. It usually only takes him an hour or 2 to solve the puzzles and then he never forgets how to solve them:33: One toy called "space circles" is weighted so it tips back and they have to tip it forward to get a single treat at a time. Little crap figured out he could tip it forward, shake so all the treast come down then tip it upside down to make them all fall out where he can go get them with ease:mad: Unless it's breeding season, he all but ignores chewing toys in favor of brightly colored plastics:rolleyes: Not sure what the fascination is, but at least it's easy clean up right?!

Let me look in the old toys bin. I might still have some good stuff from when I had the bigger parrots. Not the Scooter-Z's though, they all love that stuff. ;)

I am a new parrot parent and am still in the accumulating phase - so I don't have any trades. But Tsali would absolutely LOVE this toy. I have bought almost all the Caitec toys, and they are all too easy.

What is the name of this one - maybe I can find one online.

Did you find someone to exchange this toy with? If not, I'm interested, and I have an acrylic foraging toy to trade for it. Let me know and I'll send you a photo of what I have.

I'm in the Welches area, but travel into Portland from time to time for errands.
