A bird can easily become unhappy by sitting in an empty birdcage all day. Birds have solid beaks and energetic minds that need to be occupied to keep them happy and engaged. Boredom is the leading cause of plucking in birds, which leads to birds pulling out their feathers. This is why it's important to choose the right swings and toys for your pet bird. When selecting swings and toys for your bird, consider the following:

Size- When selecting a swing or toy for your bird, make sure that it is the best size. Some swings and toys are designed for little birds and aren't safe for your large bird. Larger pet birds have more powerful beaks, which can easily damage toys meant for smaller birds. Broken pieces from these toys can be a possible choking hazard.

Types- Bird toys are available in different forms with different functionalities. Some toys require foraging, some encourage exercise, some are puzzles, some make noise, and some are foot toys. Some toys are meant to comfort your pet birds, while others are intended to decrease anger and frustrations. Get your bird different types of toys to keep him/her entertained. Different types of toys will also keep your bird challenged, release aggressiveness, and keep fit.

Personality- You can know your bird's toy personality through observation. This will help you to choose the best swing and toy for your pet bird. Which types of materials, textures, colors, and/or shapes does your bird favor? Observe how your bird interacts with different toys, shades, and materials, and use your findings to make the best bird perch and toy selection that will keep your pet entertained.

Safety- Avoid improperly built perches and toys at all costs. Also, stay clear of toys with areas that could trap your birds' head or pinch your bird's toes. Keep in mind that a bird can get his little beak into anything, so ensure that the toys and perches you buy are tough enough. This will prevent the risk of them damaging them, and even your bird swallowing the busted pieces.

Toy rotation- Similar to kids, birds also get bored quickly; that is why it's crucial to rotate their toys. Do not put all the toys in the cage. Rather, put a few and rotate them occasionally. Also, ensure you hide the others where he or she can not see them. After a week or two, change the toys in the cage with the surprise toys. Rotation also offers you a chance to clean up the toys without bothering the bird.
