Wolf wrote:birds do not really have toys in their natural habitat, what we consider to be them playing is their practicing their survival skills ranging from foraging all the way to how to defend themselves. So if you want your bird to play with all of the neat toys that you get for it then you must take it upon yourself to teach this behavior to the bird. You can best do this by playing with the toy in front of the bird until it begins to play with the toy itself. I would suggest that once the bird starts to interact with the toy that you be careful to keep your fingers and hands back from the action or you may get caught in the excitement and receive a hard bite.

All they want to do is be on their human all day long (usually on their shoulder and so close to the neck that they are actually leaning against it).
