It is vital to give your feathered friends an opportunity to play and move about. This helps them stay in shape, both physically and psychologically. The most playful are without doubt budgerigars, but other species can also quickly learn how to use accessories or toys to pass the time without getting too bored.
Many love to climb up ladders, perform extraordinary feats on wheels, roll balls with bells or take off from trampolines. Others have to learn to make use of these objects which at first seem to be without sense. With a little patience and some titbits, you can attract their attention and lead them to the mysterious object. As soon as they begin using the toy in some way, a rung up the ladder or a peck at the ball, reward them with a titbit. Repeat the action until they have learnt the game completely.
Some wood toys can also help to keep the size of the beak down.
Remember that the happier your bird, the more it will brighten up your days with its melodious cheerful song.
