Coloured Cubes Parrot Training Toys makes an excellent Christmas Gift.
Fill the five coloured cubes with delicious treats and/or material rewards for the clever Parrot to find and retrieve (forage), helping them to replicate this natural behaviour.
At first, let the Parrot see you place the reward inside, before presenting the cube to them, and show them how the door slides open to reveal the treat. TIP: Placing the cubes so the door opens to the side makes access a lot easier.
Once the Parrot has mastered opening the doors from the side, try placing them so the door has to be lifted upwards. Now the Parrot has to lift and hold the door and retrieve their reward, else the door drops shut, making it much more challenging.
Hide a treat in only one of the coloured cube, so a Parrot has to explore them all. You can also use crinkle paper to stuff the cubes making finding the rewards that bit more challenging.
You can teach your Parrot to recognise colours too using the five different coloured cubes – red, green, orange, blue and yellow. When they go to the right one be sure to reward them.
