Foraging Wheel The wheel is a favorite with highly active parrots
especially Amazons, Caiques, Cockatoos and Macaws as well as the very
clever parrots i.e. African Greys, in fact it seems to be
enthusiastically enjoyed by most parrots.
The birds must use the knob to turn the cover plate and expose the
food items within each chamber. To release the wheel from the bracket,
the caretaker will pull down the latch on the bottom of the bracket,
raise the cover plate and unhook at the top. The wheel is then free.
Unscrew the cover plate and fill the chambers, put the cover plate back
on, hook the wheel on the top and fold down, secure to the bracket by
pressing the bottom latch inward and it will snap closed.
It only takes a few moments and your parrot
will be happily engaged for several hours. To encourage a bird t keep
working the wheel fill each chamber with a different type of food.
