What is creative foraging? Creative foraging is providing the opportunity to search for and acquire food. A pet parrot’s cage is its environment and its territory. When something new is introduced into this environment, a bird, being naturally inquisitive, is inclined to explore the newly introduced item and discover that it contains food. The hunt is on, and the bird will begin learning to forage.
What does Creative Foraging Achieve? The Creative Foraging System provides your parrot with the opportunity to feed naturally by foraging for food. It thus will become involved inbehaviors and physical activities similar to birds observed in the wild. Having a pet bird obtain food entirely by foraging is a revolutionary concept that offers numerous benefits to both the bird and its human companion. Field trials indicate that parrots fed from traditional dishes spendbetween 15 to 27 minutes per day feeding, whereas, birds that have madea complete transition to foraging for their food must dedicate 4 to 6 hoursper day to feeding activities. Creative Foraging System is the only pet birdfeeding regimen on the market that provides environmental enrichment,continuous stimulation, and vigorous physical exercise.
Increase foraging opportunities by using multiple foraging devices installedin different locations. Position devices so that some are more difficult thanothers to access, and change locations frequently. The feeding devices may be filled with your choice of food products, such as extruded pellets, dried fruit, shelled nuts, sliced vegetables, seeds, and other treats. Starter Kits are available in two different sizes, and include a number of free refill boxes. The goal is to make the bird work for its food.
The boxes and honeycomb inserts of the Foraging Box are made from USDA-approved chipboard, an eco-friendly, biodegradable material. All boxes are free of glue and/or any toxins that might be harmful to your pet bird. The box is heavy enough to maintain its configuration, but it must be torn apart inorder to gain access to the contents. The bird chews or tears into the box to find food. After discovering the food source, it continues chewing or tearing through the honeycomb layers to continue accessing additional food.
