Squawk Box Subscription Review – July 2018

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

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 four 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), Big Birdie (Amazons, Cockatoos, Eclectus, and Congo African Grey sizes), and Jumbo Birdie (large Amazons, Macaws, Moluccan Cockatoos). The monthly subscription starts at $24.95 for the Little Birdie to $44.95 for the Jumbo 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 (including couches, books, important papers, walls), the longer subscription is definitely a must! They now ship to Australia!

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. She knows this is her box, and I had to let her see what was inside before I was able to take a picture of her on the box. Yes, that’s a piece of one of this month’s toy in her beak!

Everything in the box, including all the yellow paper squiggles. The bird is not included, you need to provide your own. Oh, and the box is also safe to destroy and can provide tons of fun to destructive beaks!

There is no information on the content of the box, but you get a nice DIY Parrot Treat, a Did You Know about birds closest relative (the crocodile!!!), and the Rescue of the Month. For July, part of the money from the sale of each Squawk Box goes to Happy Wings Sanctuary in Orange, VA!

Mineral Blocks by Prevue Hendrix. I like the cute apple shape! Some birds will need a mineral block to supplement calcium and other minerals to them, or to sharpen their beak… Kiwi wouldn’t touch this even if her life depended on it, but her cousin, Kip the Quaker, loves them.

World’s Best Treats – Diced Apple.

These little beak-size chewy piece of dehydrated apple are delicious.

Kiwi tasted them from my finger, and hissed at it. But she is known to steal the dried fruits from my granola when mixed with soy milk, so I’m sure I can get her to eat those! If not, all for me!

Natural Rope Ladder Toy by Prevue Hendrix. A fun natural perch to add variety to your bird’s cage!

Kiwi will perch on anything. ANYTHING. My curtains, my laptop, the top of the kitchen cupboards, heads, fish tanks, pull-up bar. This toy is amazing to get them to exercise their little feet with a different surface to keep them healthy!

Being all natural without any dye, it’s easy to clean them because let’s face it, your bird will poop on ALL their perch in no time.

Premium Tweeter Toy. A soothing toy full of colors, ropes, and a little piece of paper. Kiwi loves to snuggle up with these toys at night before going to bed in her tent.

Strawberry Wooden toy by Paradise. Then, there’s this toy. A small wooden piece, easy to break apart if your beak wants to. This is the toy Kiwi has a piece of in her beak in the first picture of this review. She loves it!

Yes, she tucks the pieces in her tail feathers. She does that to all paper as well. It’s typical to Lovebirds, and they’ll do that to bring them to where they want to build a nest. Most of the time, she’ll tuck them in her feathers and forget about them when she flies. But this month, she’s really into building a nest, especially when my husband is around. We’ll hold on to that toy for a while until her hormones calm down a bit.

Once again, this box was awesome for Kiwi. She liked everything!

Especially the Strawberry wooden toy. She went straight for it and started killing it!

Kiwi and I love Squawk Box as it is great to discover new toys, and maybe new favorites. I’m happy to say that having new toys every month got Kiwi even more curious about new things, and less stressed out when something different happens. And seeing that Kiwi recognizes the box every month makes me think that she really enjoys getting new toys to love or hate!

I’m impressed by the variety of toys available out there as Kiwi has been subscribed to Squawk Box for a while now and she only received the same toy once or twice! It’s fun to get a box of new toys and treats to discover, instead of spending countless hours at the pet store in front of a very limited selection to end up buying the same toy over and over again! And sometimes, your bird will surprise you by loving a toy or treat you were sure it would hate!

    Thanks! Yes, Kiwi can get quite bossy at times, but she knows what she likes and hates, and will let us know all about it!

    Kiwi is so cute. It seems like she’s got a great personality! And a little bit of attitude 🙂
