One of the things that distinguish parrots from the rest of the bird kingdom is their feet. They have zygodactyl claws; two toes forward and two toes back, which aids them in feeding, grooming, climbing, walking and perching. Parrots use their feet just like we use our hands. So when you’re thinking of toys for parrots don’t just think about engaging the eye and the beak. Think about engaging their feet. A variety of toe, leg and breast muscles are engaged to lift, turn and throw the toy and a parrot cannot help but improve their balance and co-ordination when playing with them.
