1. Clearly Fun™ PVC Foraging Toys for Food & Toys  
Prices: $10.95 to $21.95 for single tubes
Sizes:  1/2-inch     3/4-inch     1-inch
We will have larger tubes (1-1/2 and 2-inch)
near the end of November.

 

We are testing to see the range of the hole size best for several kinds
of larger birds.  If you would like to help us and get a better price too, please let us know.  (This is a test version of the toy.)

****************************
NOTE: We tested  the ½" SMALLEST size with several large macaws and cockatoos.  They scratched the PVC but none of the birds broke the tubes.  However, please
do not buy this little tube for a big bird.  We were only testing durability.

Not sure what to get?  Get a ½-inch foot toy style (under $15) and
see how your bird likes it.  However, if your bird is large, please
try the 1-inch size instead of something smaller.  The 1-inch foot
toy is only $15.95.  Or, if you don't mind waiting a couple weeks, toward the end of November we will have the larger sizes.

More about the tubes.
  • Easy to clean & refill.    
  • Toy Styles - your choice of 3 styles -- Foot, Hanging (on bird
    safe chain), or Cage Mounted Toys 
  • Hole size in the 1/2-inch and 3/4-inch tubes is 7/16-inch. We
    use bigger sized holes for larger tubes.
     
  • PVC SIZE is the inside diameter (width) of the pipe.   

How to select the right size and style for your bird:

  • SELECT SIZE.  What do you want to put in the tube? 
  • SELECT STYLE:  foot, hanging, or cage-mount.  
  • DIFFICULTY.  The foot toy is more challenging than the hanging
    or cage mounted style.  The foot toy does have a plastic rope hanger.
Bird Size
  • Small Birds (smaller than Amazon or AF grey).  Get the ½" size with a plastic rope hanger or get the hanging or cage mount style. 
  • Medium Birds (Amazon/grey) Can hold the smaller ½" in their foot.  Some medium birds can hold the 3/4" size.  They can also use any size that is hung or cage mounted.
  • Large Birds (large macaw and cockatoo) We recommend 
    using 1-inch or larger sizes for these bigger birds.

How to use PVC toy

  • Remove white end cap and insert food or toy. Replace the cap.
    The bird works through the small holes in the clear PVC tube to
    get the food or toy. 

  • Add a small paper ball (like wadded up typing paper) in each end
    of the tube to hold the food near the holes to make it easier to
    get.

Easy to clean 

  • If you put any wet food in the tube, it will need to be washed. 
    Wash in a dishwasher or wash by hand.  If you wash it in the
    dishwasher, put in the silverware basket and let it air dry.

The Cap and Hanging

  • CAP.  Caps are removable (by people and some birds).  To make
    the cap extra tight, place a small piece of paper between the
    tube and the cap.
     

  • Clearly Fun Treat Tube, foot toy with plastic rope hanger

  • HANGING.  The foot toy style (photo above) comes with a short
    plastic rope hanger.  It has small holes in the cap that can be used
    for the EH Chewable Hangers (skewer).

Toy Styles - your choice of 3 styles 

  • Foot toy with removable Paulie Rope (braided plastic) hanger.
    As it says above, the foot toy has two holes in the cap so it can
    be used with the (large or small) EH Chewable Hanger (skewer).

  • Hanging toy - hardware is all nickel-plated (NP). 
    It is bird safe (chain & O-rings).

  • Cage mount toy - with stainless steel (bolt and wing nut) and
    two acrylic washers.

Hole size in the PVC toys

  • Some (full length) PVC tubes have three holes. 

  • Some tubes just have one hole. 

    Hole size in the smaller tubes (for smaller birds) is 7/16-inch
    (just under 1/2-inch).  Holes in larger tube (1-inch and larger)
    and some are are customized.
     

    Below are some suggestions for hole sizes.  Of course, sizes
    are limited to our drill bit sizes.  We have more than 12 drill
    bit sizes.
