There’s a lot of reasons your bird might not readily embrace something new. It could be the color of a single bead. The shape of of something hanging. What’s important is before you just hang something new in the cage, unless our bird readily accepts everything new, is to “play” with the new toy. Talking in a high voice “to” the toy making it interesting to you. If it’s interesting to you, chances are it’ll be more interesting to your bird. The image below helps make that point doesn’t it?
So as to not drone on and on on your Sunday, about all the proper ways to introduce and all the proper types of toys that are appropriate for every species of bird, let me leave you with this thought. Think of bird toys not only for foraging opportunities, education & engagement. Think of them representing “nature’s canopy”. Toys represent the leaves of the tree your bird would be living in the wild. We advocate having so many toys in your bird’s cage, you can’t see the bird. This canopy of toys helps your bird feel hidden and secure (from predators), for the same reasons you feel a little safer when you close the blinds at bedtime.
