Purchase with a purpose: 4% goes to wild parrots!

🦜 Parrots are truly amazing, highly social and intelligent creatures who can be wonderful companions. But to remain happy and healthy, they need mental stimulation, engaging play time, and lots to do! Providing parrots with high-quality and engaging toys is therefore essential to their well-being. And when parrots are happy and thriving, their human companions are less likely to relinquish or abandon them, which is sadly a growing concern. Each single toy I create is made with love for these amazing creatures, attention to detail, and artistry. They are meant to engage a parrot's senses and to strengthen the parrot-human bond by bringing them both fun and joy. But it takes considerable time, energy, and resources to envision, design and create thoughtful, innovative, and safe bird toys. Your patronage directly supports my goal to provide companion parrots with healthy play time (and ultimately to reduce relinquishing rates). You can also support my efforts by spreading the word about Perches4Change and following along on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Tumbler, and Patreon. Finally, every purchase supports parrots in the wild, as 4% of profits is donated to The World Parrot Trust (www.parrots.org), who supports wild parrots and protects their habitats. If you have any questions or comments, please get in touch.

Many thanks and 'flock on',

    I was born and raised in Brazil but have been living in the U.S. since the late 90's. I've always been very fond of animals and nature, but birds occupy a special place in my heart and imagination. Helping to improve their lives makes me happy!

    Tweety (right) and Kiwi (left) are very hard-working and helpful team members during photo shoots. You'll find them lending their adorable looks to highlight a variety of my shop's products, including perches, swings, and ladders! They can't be sold!

Thank you for visiting Perches 4 Change Bird Toys & Products! I hope you will find something that inspires your soul, lifts your spirits, and makes your feathered companions happy! Artistic, carefully handmade bird toys and products are the primary focus of my shop, and my own 'fids' (short for 'feathered kids') are a constant source of inspiration for my creations! My shop also features digital photography of avian life.

** VERY IMPORTANT NOTES ON TOY SAFETY (Please read and disseminate):

- All bird toys and products present a certain degree of risk to pet birds and no toy is indestructible or 100% safe at all times (remember, parrot beaks are very powerful and they can chew through most materials with enough time and opportunity);
- The same exact toy may pose a risk to one bird but not another, so in addition to considering the safety of a toy in general, it is very important to consider the safety of a particular toy for a particular bird;
- It is important to choose the appropriate size toy for your pet bird (the same beads that are safe for one bird may pose a chocking/ingestion hazard to others);
- When introducing new toys to your pet bird(s), supervise them closely until you can be sure that they are interacting with the toy safely;
- Check and inspect your bird toys often and regularly for any potential risks (such as plastic parts becoming brittle and/or breaking into smaller pieces and ropes or fabric posing a risk of entanglement by fraying);
- Promptly remove any toy parts that have become loose, frayed, or damaged;
- Clean your bird toys often;
- Dispose of any metal parts that begin to rust or show any signs of oxidation.
- If you choose to buy perches with zin-placed wing nuts and washers, please be mindful that zinc, if consumed, is highly toxic to birds. If you notice that your bird touches the metal parts of the perch regularly, promptly swap them for stainless steel parts. In addition, if your parrot chews a wooden perch to the point that the internal screw begins to show, dispose of the perch immediately to avoid contact between your bird and the metal.)

Following these steps will help keep your cherished feathered friend safe, comfortable, and happy! (For more information on pet bird safety, check http://stuff4petz.com/safe-bird-toys-things-to-consider-when-making-homemade-bird-toys/ )
