This is the last toy I bought on my little shopping spree for Daisy. She hasn't had a chance to chew on it yet as she is working on the first toy still but if the first toy is any indication of how much Daisy enjoys them, I'm sure this toy will be no different. I am so impressed with the quality and care that goes into these toys made by Nita. I will surely be buying more in the not too distant future. Daisy has pretty much stopped pulling her feathers out, save her leg feathers, and is actually looking more like a cockatoo instead of a turkey leg. I am so very pleased with these toys. Daisy says thank you too!

I went on a shopping spree for my cockatoo Daisy. She self mutilates and although she has several toys, she took to this toy straight away. The popsicle sticks were the first to go, now? She's working on the wood. I would highly recommend buying these toys for any bird, but especially for ones that pluck. The dyes used are all natural, the metal is stainless steel which is very safe, and the different shapes intrigue Daisy. The different wood makes a big difference too. Sometimes, she likes the softer wood, then others? She likes to strip the bark off of the apple wood. I really do appreciate the consideration that goes into every toy made. Thank you!

I have a Citron Crested Cockatoo that has been severely traumatized. As a result, Daisy plucks her feathers, then self mutilates. While she has toys, I didn't have foot toys for her. I ordered her foot toys from Nita and what a difference it's made in Daisy. She's happier than she has been for a while now. The toys are quality made and safe for birds, more so than the toys at the pet shop. The apple wood foot toy is her favorite. She's taken the bark off and now is systematically shredding the wood itself. She is honestly less interested in her feathers and more interested in her toys. I highly recommend Nita. She makes a quality product and I will buy more from her in the future. Thank you so much!

About

From a very early age, my birds have inspired me to be creative.

Bird toys and swings are very important to the well-being of any bird. Having toys that are also made from SAFE materials is extremely important. Many of the toys you buy commercially are actually made in China, and I think we all know enough to be leery of anything made there. Even buying parts to make your own toys is risky, as many of those parts are also made in China! We get untreated pine boards and cut them to size, then I use human-grade food coloring to color the wood. I also use apple branches and slices from trees in our backyard (no chemicals!), vegetable-tanned rawhide, and only safe stainless steel wire and quick links. The same kind of toys and swings I make and give to my birds are exactly what I offer to you.

Toys that contain pine pieces tend to be very attractive to the birds, because they can really destroy them! What fun! Nothing is more fun to the bird than leaving it in splinters! Although not offered with the "holiday" toys, many of the basic toys and swings I offer come with a few extra pieces, along with instructions so that you may refurbish the toy as needed. This extends the life of the toy and increases your savings.

Having been involved with birds for the past 40-plus years, and also having a love for crafting and painting, has resulted in the creation of many items in addition to the bird toys. Key-racks, clocks, cribbage boards, and ornaments are some of the items we make. My husband does the wood crafting, and then I do the painting and finishing. It's something we can do together that we really enjoy. Birds often featured prominently in these items, but recently I have been branching out to include other woodland creatures, such as owls, chipmunks, squirrels, and others. And let's not forget Bigfoot! He is currently featured on a cribbage board and will no doubt make an appearance on other items as well.

If you are looking for a specific bird or critter, I can usually do that, too. Or maybe you'd like your own bird or dog to be the subject? I have done Welcome signs, plaques, cribbage boards, and ornaments to customers' specifications, usually for an additional 20%, and often these can be created in as little as a week's time. Message me to see if I can do what you want!

Please know that I treat all my customers as I would like to be treated. I will pack your order with care and get it out to you as quickly as possible.
