Has anyone give me some new ideas on how to entertain a cute African parrot? What can I give him to keep him occupied? He likes to destroy his toys and they are very expensive to buy. Any ideas for making safe homemade ones or what outside plants can he use for variety in his diet? Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Keep your old telephone books. Get some chains from the hardware store or use the ones that the "destroyed toys" were hanging on. Drill a hole through the center of the telephone book, string the chain through it, join the chain with a screw type lock, hang it from the top of the cage, close the screw lock. If you don't have a drill, a copy center, such as Kinkos, or a photocopy shop may be able to drill it for you.
Ask you relatives and neighbors to save their old phone books for you.
My Macaws and Amazons love shredding the phone books and it keeps them busy for days.
