Although dogs and cats make up the largest numbers of household pets, millions of people also enjoy the companionship of indoor birds. And, much like owners of other pets, bird owners invest in products to care for, pamper and entertain their feathered friends.
Toys that stimulate birds both mentally and physically are a big plus. These can include products like treat puzzles and pull-apart or shred-able products to mimic foraging behavior, toys that can help naturally wear down beaks or items that allow the bird to move to different levels for perching. Some available products include:
- Happy Harry knotted wooden bird activity toy by Molly’s Bird Toys (http://www.mollysbirdtoys.com/)
- Wesco Pet Original Bird Kabob (http://birdkabob.com/)
- Ecotrition Slide and Spin for large birds (http://www.ecotrition.com/Bird-Product-Catalog/Slide-N-Spin-for-Large-Birds.aspx)
Additionally, domestic bird foods (not outdoor bird seed), treats, water reservoirs, and cage liners, among other bird care products, can increase sales in this category.
