I found it: My conure’s favorite wooden toy!

October 8, 2007

On the Bird Board discussion forum, someone kept mentioning how their sun conure loved this wooden duck, so when I saw it at PetCo, I immediately bought it. And indeed, Stewie loved it — so much so that he literally bit its head off in a matter of minutes. He was making his happy purring/chirping noises for a long time as he broke off piece by piece.

I bought him a similar toy shaped like a cat’s head from an online store, but it uses different wood that’s not as soft. So Stewie gnaws on it, but the cat doesn’t crumble into little pieces the way the duckie did. No little pieces = no adorable happy noises.

I’ve since been to every PetCo and PetSmart in the metro area (okay, I exagerate, but only a little) and several online stores and no one had the duckie!

Well, I finally found it. It’s called the Jungle Talk Duckie.

Stewie gives the wooden duck (with “lots of legs”) two enthusiastic birdie-toes up!



  1. I have bought both of these for my sun conure. He ripped them apart in a matter of minutes but he was never so happy as when he was desrtroying them. I bought mine at Wal*Mart.

  2. […] guy’s favorite is a wooden duck with rope and plastic beads hanging from the bottom. He’s not much of a chewer usually, but he goes through those in nothing […]

  3. […] sun conure’s absolute favorite wooden toy: the lots of legs duckie. He’s not big into toys, but he loves that one. He’s gone through half a dozen of them easily. He […]

  4. Make peace, not war!
