    Parakeets are extremely playful birds - and if you're not careful, they can become bored and frustrated very easily. Therefore, it's essential to place plenty of pet bird toys in the cage to keep these lively birds stimulated. For more information on parakeet toys, read on. %%AFC-ADVERT%%

    Parakeets: Bird Toys Guide

    The average parakeet loves nothing more than the following three activities - chewing, swinging and climbing. Therefore, you'll need to consider bird toys that are concerned with stimulating a parakeet in these three pursuits.

    Chewing is perhaps the easiest problem to overcome - simply add a couple of interesting wooden toys as well as cuttlefish bones into the cage, and the parakeet will happily chew away to its heart's content. This will help wear down the beak and stop the bird inflicting any chewing damage on the cage wall.

    Next, occupy the parakeet's attention by introducing swing contraptions into the cage. Tie some long ropes and strings into the top of the cage, and attach a couple of toys (nudgeable ones and noisy ones) at different points along the string. Remember, parakeets are intelligent birds so you'll need to make adaptations to the rope on a regular basis to keep these birds entertained.

    Finally, integrate some climbing pet bird toys into the cage. In the confined conditions of the cage, a bird will require plenty of exercise, so adding small ladders, perches and branches can all encourage the bird to keep moving around the cage. Any responsible parakeet owner should never underestimate the importance of parakeet toys in boosting the bird's general enjoyment of life on a day-to-day basis.
