Twelve talons up!
Our birds all love these. I had originally bought one, to try out, and inserted a steel 'kabob' through it - hanging it in the cage of my male Congo African Grey. He loved it, finding creative ways to remove the contents. I filled it with everything from foot toys and bird 'cookies' to pistachios in the shell along with the paper shreds that you can buy to fill Easter baskets. Both the Greys enjoy pulling out the paper and trying to remove the treats and toys. So for Christmas, I decided everyone should have their own ball, instead of rotating the one from cage to cage. They all love them, and I fill them with different things appropriate for each size of bird. They are incredibly sturdy (we've had the first one in the cage with the Greys for almost a year now). The *only* problem I have had is getting the threads lined up with screwing them back together. But the threads being so fine is part of what makes them hard to unscrew, which keeps a certain clever little female Grey from merely twisting it off for easy access to the goodies instead of working for them the hard way, so that is not necessarily what I would consider a flaw. These are one of the best toy investments I have made so far for our flock. (Each of them gives it two talons up, for a total of twelve!)

A Must Have for Foragers!
By Stud Muffin
Awesome! If your bird loves to forage like mine does then this feeder ball is a MUST HAVE! You can fill it with fruits, nuts, or any kind of snack, along with some shredded, crinkled paper and let the fun begin! We hung one in the cage and the other one is always heard scuttling along the wood floor in the living room. It's fun to watch our bird have so much fun with it. The plastic isn't flimsy, either, which is great if your bird picks it up with his beak and tosses it around like our little guy!

Good for Smaller Parrots Too
Bought from "Amoondo Supply"
I got this for my Green Cheeked conure. It's bigger than she is but she loves climbing on it and foraging for food. I put fruit and millet in the center and then paper strips sticking out so she has to actually find the food. Just remember to replace/remove fruit after a couple hours if it's not eaten.
