Training and Foraging Treats

What are some treats we can use for training and in foraging toys, baskets and cups that are healthy for birds. I want to put a lot of foraging opportunities in my parrotlets cage but also want to make sure it's not junk. I'm trying to avoid sunflower seeds, too much millet spray and too many nutriberries, all of which he goes crazy for!

Nothing wrong with a couple sunflower seeds a day. I like to stick some in those yucca kabobs, like just shove them in the soft part.
Hiding little treats in paper crinkle is fun too.

Treat choices...Hmm... Let's see.... How about dried hot peppers? Or dehydrated fruits and veggies?

The items you have listed are perfectly acceptable treats / foods. The key most people miss about treats such as millet spray, seeds etc is that our little one can get fixated on on type to the exclusion of others and thus get their diet out of balance. As long as you are watchful of what they eat and make sure they get a variety of foods all is well.

Thanks! Maybe I'll just divide them up into different foraging toys so I can control the amounts of each.

Completely agree as the items that you listed are ones that I use. Another treat to try is safflower seeds.
