Too Hard for Mine

My Alexandrine is a good forager but can't get the hang of this one. It is too big so he isn't aware there is a bottom half and I don't think he would be strong enough to pull down on the bottom half.
He is able to move the top section enough to get the almond to drop down to the next level but then loses interest as doesn't know where to go to from there.
The product would be great but make sure your bird is big and strong enough to use it, and also I think I would recommend it for advanced foragers only

Pippa (cockatoo) quickly learnt the routine for this forager. She pulls the bottom lever so vigorously that the treat (usually and almond in it's shell) sometime drops to the floor and she thinks she has gained nothing.Otherwise another great forager.
