Kris Porter’s Fantastic Foraging Blocks Are Here!

November 19, 2011

Last week, Kris Porter of ParrotEnrichment.com asked if we’d give some feedback on a new foraging toy she has developed. Of course we jumped at the chance! (Are you kidding? A foraging toy developed by the guru of parrot enrichment? Yes, please!)

The box arrived Thursday night and we couldn’t wait to open it. Check out the “unboxing”.

Look, ma! A new box. Let me help you open it!

Yay! It’s full of paper! Paper is my favorite!

Ooh! A wooden toy?

It’s a 2″x 2″ column of untreated pine with peek-a-boo holes drilled through, as well as cuts in different directions creating little ledges to interest busy beaks and wedge treats into. 

Another one!

And more!

Some of the blocks came “plain” and some were decorated with vine stars and colored buttons (that hid pre-inserted treats behind them).

Let me dig through that box. I think there may be more!

The toys came in two sizes. The small blocks were 2″x 2″. The medium blocks were 2″x 4″.

Let’s check it out!

  1. I agree! I too was gifted with some of these and my parrots couldn’t get at them fast enough. They are easy to chew because of the “slots” and provide plenty of spaces for hiding treats. One of the best toys ever invented!


  2. Again, those are really, really nice toys! Seeing these pictures made me want them even more!


  3. Great blog! I was hoping to send you a short film about parrots, to perhaps share with your readers, but I wasn’t sure how to get in touch. The film is here: http://vimeo.com/37871771
