Swiss Cheese Forage
A solid but chew-ably rough block of wood with an abundance of holes for your parrot to dig into. Each hole has been drilled completely through the word block adding an extra dimension when it comes to placing treats inside. The smaller holes located on each side of the block are great for hiding pellets, seeds or paper, while the larger central holes can fit larger treats such as carrot sticks, chillies, celery, beans or toy parts. Each elongated hole allows you the choice of either wedging the treat deep inside to encourage harder foraging practices or you can simply place the treat close to the edge for easier removal and instant gratification.
The extra bonus with this toy is the ability to apply 'second step foraging'. Treats can be wrapped in varying materials such as paper, pasta or leaves before being inserted into each cavity. You feathered friend will have to remove the treat of choice only to find they have to actively remove the treat from within the treat.
All parrots will love digging in to get these treats and gradually destroying the block will provide hours of beaky entertainment.
Our refill toys are designed to save money and reduce waste. Buy one toy with the chain and when it's seen its last day unscrew the screw eye from the used toy and attach a new one. Chains can also be purchased separately from our hardware section.
A bottle brush (small bottle brushes can usually be found in the baby section at supermarkets) is ideal for the holes if scrubbing is required but otherwise use hot (or even boiling) water for a thorough and quick clean. Animal grade disinfectant can be sprayed on afterwards. Drying immediately on a rack in direct sun is the best way to minimise the risk of mould growth.

I've bought quite a few of these over the years for my very active b&gm. She just loves them hung on a kabob and off centre, so they spin randomly whilst being destroyed. The holes are perfect for hiding nuts and shredders. All in all good value for the many weeks of parrot pleasure they provide.
What a score!

Our eclectus just loves this toy! Every day I fill it with paper, with or without nuts in them, or pasta, or small toys wrapped in paper - whatever I can find. Who would've thought it'd be such a hit! This toy is an absolute score!
