Baskets

DIY Parrot Basket Play AreaBaskets make great alternate play areas for parrots. You can carry the basket with you from room to room. A good basket for this purpose is made of untreated wicker or willow. Look for baskets with wide bases and sturdy handles. You don't want the handle too high off the basket. A shorter handle will provide more balance when your bird plays on it. Tie on toys to the sides of the basket and handle for added interest and activity. You can create a foraging opportunity by filling the basket with toys, whole vegetables, fruit or nuts and anything else that your bird is particularly interested in.
