You don’t have to spend a lot of money to come up with ways to keep your pet parrot busy. Here is an idea for a parrot enrichment toy (a foraging activity for your parrot) that you can easily make at home.
From a block of soft, scrap wood, I drilled a hole in the center for the string or chain and lots of small holes around the sides in which I inserted safflower seeds.
Another parrot enrichment idea. I cut up an old t-shirt and put some crushed sunflower seeds and pellets in the middle. Then tie it ‘very’ tightly together and hang in their cages. The guys love them. NOTE: for safety, if you do this, use thick rope (I use hemp) and make the note so tight that a head can’t get through if the material falls out when they are through. I only give this to my guys when I am home..it sure keeps them busy for awhile.
