    Thumbs up **The Parrot Enrichment Activity eBook**

    Not a thread for discussion, just a reference. Thank you.
    Thank you to 2cay2 for sharing these books!!

    The Parrot Enrichment Activity Book

    It includes:
    Making toys
    Shredders
    Foraging
    Playstands/gyms etc
    Aviary
    And resources.

    Version 2 here http://www.phoenixlanding.org/PEAB_V2.pdf

    Authors warning:
    When reading this book please keep parrot safety in mind. Not every idea presented here is appropriately
    safe for every parrot. For example, I use relatively small beads to hang on toys for my larger parrots
    as that is what they seem to prefer. I’ve watched them carefully and I’m confident they will not ingest
    the small bead. But for someone else’s parrot, he might. Know what is safe for your parrot. Just
    because something is okay to give to my parrot it doesn't mean it will work for yours.

    I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but once more for the record, no parrot toy is 100% safe. Please
    observe your parrot playing with every new type of toy you introduce to his environment before you
    leave him alone with it. Most of the internet sites that sell parrot toys have sections on safety tips and
    information on picking the right size toys.
    It is worth your time to click on those pages and read the information
    provided. There is no need to be paranoid or overly suspicious of every toy, just be knowledgeable
    and careful, and use good sense.

    Thanks Peter


    These books are for inspiration, to encourage you to think outside the box when creating enriching lives for your birds. Some items may not be safe or correct in your opinion, but may be acceptable to others. We know our own birds.
    Some of the ideas in these books are not suitable for ALL birds. Buy/make toys while being very careful to use proper size items for your bird!

    Anyone wishing to discuss any items/products(not only within these books) which may be unsafe for our birds is encouraged to start a NEW topic/thread. If you wish to have a passionate debate on the topic, post in Deep Thinking. Thank you.
