Squawk Box Subscription Box Review – April 2017

Squawk Box is a monthly birdie care package of 4-6 bird treats, toys, and more delivered straight to your door. Because parrots, big and small, need a great amount of stimulation to thrive, Squawk Box will deliver a new selection of toys every month. Every crate is carefully curated to keep our feather friends happy and healthy!

The box is available in three sizes: Little Birdie (great for Lovebirds, Parrotlets, Cockatiels, Parakeets, Green Cheek Conure sized), Middle Birdie (great for Quakers, Conures, Senegals, Pionus, Timneh Greys, Caiques, some Mini Macaws & some small cockatoos), and Big Birdie (Macaws, Amazons, Cockatoos, Eclectus, and Congo African Grey sizes). The monthly subscription starts at $24.95 for the Little Birdie to $34.95 for the Big Birdie, with significant discounts for longer subscriptions. Knowing that parrots have a long life ahead of them, and that they will destroy everything around them, the longer subscription is definitely a must!

Also, for each Squawk Box ordered, a percentage goes to parrot rescues. Not only do you provide fun new treats to your own bird, but you help other parrots as well!

This review is for the Little Birdie. My assistant reviewer is Kiwi the lovebird aka the diva.

Everything is always so nicely wrapped up in tissue paper! I really enjoy the care they put into wrapping the toys!

There is no information on the content of the box, but you get a nice DIY Parrot Treat (Easy Easter Birdie Cakes), a Did You Know about the Night Parrot and the Rescue of the Month. For April, part of the money from the sale of each Squawk Box goes to the Midwest Avian Adoption and Rescue in St. Paul, MN!

Under a layer of paper squiggles, here’s everything in the box! As usual, we get two treats and a couple of toys. I love that their shape is fitting with the month theme!

Higgins Sunburst Gourmet Treat Sticks Island Fruit. Made with safflower and sunflower seeds, papaya, banana, coconut, corn and other fun treats, it’s held together with honey. You can hand it in the cage for your parrot enjoyment. Some birds don’t know what to do with treats on a stick, but it’s worth trying it out even if it’s to destroy the offensive item in the cage!

World’s Best Diced Carrots Treats. They are dried carrots, and Kiwi tried them!

And I got bitten because I dared to disturb her while she was playing with the suitcase. She likes bags.

Easter Basket. This is such a fun toy to get for Easter! They are foot toy, perfect for the bird keeping an active lifestyle! Kiwi as a spot on my office couch for toys and she played with it when I didn’t have a camera nearby. It’s full of different textures (soft rubber, cardboard, straw, paper) and Kiwi likes to hide in the basket.

Chew-up Carrot by Feathered Addictions. I first thought it was a chicken made with a palm box, paper shreds and other fun textures. There’s a cute carrot cut-out in poplar underneath. It’s cute and I’m just waiting for Kiwi to stop being afraid of it and start destroying it!

Bunny-n-Beads by Feather Land. Made with chewable leather, acrylic beads and woods, this is such an adorable little toy!

Kiwi is now friend with it.

She even took a nap with the bunny! (Don’t worry, I’ve cut the tie-wrap right after this picture was taken to keep it safe to snuggle with.)

What do you think of this box Kiwi?

Sometimes, she pretends she doesn’t want new toys. But she does!

Happy bird!

Every month, Squawk Box brings new toys, new treats, and new adventures to your feathered friend! This was one of my favourite box from Squawk Box. I love when they include a foot toy, so birds that spend time outside their cage can forage and play with something different than what they find in their cage. Kiwi made a new friend (the rabbit) and that means she’ll take her time destroying it, while napping with it in the meantime!

Chirp!

    Oh my gosh, did she give you a high five (paw? claw?)? She is adorable and I love the picture of her on the box because she looks ecstatically happy!

      Kiwi will give us a low “high four” (the same way as a dog will put a paw in your hand) when we ask, but in this case it was my husband’s way to put her in the box!

        That’s my favorite picture.

    It looks like Kiwi knows it is her box!

      She thinks that every single box I receive is hers!
