A bird can easily become unhappy by sitting in an empty birdcage all day. Birds have strong beaks and active minds that need to be occupied to keep them happy and engaged. Boredom is the leading cause of plucking in birds, which leads to birds pulling out their feathers. This is why it's essential to choose the best swings and toys for your pet bird. When picking swings and toys for your bird, consider the following:
Size- When picking a swing or toy for your bird, ensure that it is the appropriate size. Some swings and toys are made for little birds and aren't safe for your large bird. Larger pet birds have stronger beaks, which can quickly break toys meant for smaller birds. Broken pieces from these toys can be a possible choking hazard.
Types- Bird toys are available in different forms with different functionalities. Some toys require foraging, some encourage exercise, some are puzzles, some make noise, and some are foot toys. Some toys are meant to comfort your pet birds, while others are intended to minimize rage and frustrations. Get your bird different types of toys to keep him/her entertained. Different types of toys will also keep your bird challenged, release aggression, and keep fit.
Personality- You can understand your bird's toy personality through observation. This will help you to pick the best swing and toy for your pet bird. Which types of materials, textures, colors, and/or shapes does your bird choose? Observe how your bird interacts with different toys, shades, and materials, and use your findings to make the best bird perch and toy selection that will keep your pet entertained.
Safety- Avoid poorly built perches and toys at all costs. Also, stay clear of toys with areas that could trap your birds' head or pinch your bird's toes. Keep in mind that a bird can get his little beak into anything, so make sure that the toys and perches you purchase are tough enough. This will avoid the risk of them breaking them, or even your bird swallowing the broken items.
Toy rotation- Similar to kids, birds also get bored quickly; that is why it's essential to rotate their toys. Don't put all the toys in the cage. Instead, put a few and rotate them occasionally. Also, ensure you hide the others where he or she can not see them. After a week or so, replace the toys in the cage with the hidden toys. Rotation also offers you a chance to clean up the toys without aggravating the bird.

Had a great experience with them setting me up with a TYM tractor. On top of being easy to work with, they had tractors in stock that no one else had.
This place is wonderful. I was looking for my dogs regular food and they were SO helpful. Even gave me a bunch of samples. Found my dog supplies place.
Will definitely be back here again!
Really great place the whole staff is ready to answer questions and help you find what you need, I pass about 4 other feed and pet stores on my way over there because I know that I can count on EFC having what I need.
Love this place! The people are super friendly and very knowledgeable. The prices are great and there's a cute cat that sits on the tractor inside. Definitely a good place to go for all your pets needs and to support a local business. 😊
