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, Kiwi the Lovebird, is always happy to stick around to see what’s new and fun in her box. Fun thing: non-bird pet can also enjoy these box, such as squirrels or hamsters! Of course, the bird is not included with the box, you have to provide your own diva!

Everything is packed with paper and both the box and packaging are bird safe. So bigger birdie will have a blast with the box!

There is no information on the content of the box, but you get a nice DIY Parrot Treat (Pumpkin Bird Muffins), a Did You Know about parrots (how they can eat with their feet and that they are right or left footed). Every month, Squawk Box donates part of their profits to a new bird charity. This month’s donation is to the Parrot Partners in Carleton Place, Ontario!

Once in a while, we get a cute little stickers to celebrate our love for our feathered friend. This month, we got this Parrot = Love. As soon as a get a new laptop, this goes on it!

Bonka Bird Toys Ball Clanger. This was one of the winner this month. It makes noises, it’s easy to push around by a tiny feather ball of anger, and it’s quite sturdy.

Kiwi has a similar ball loose on the floor that she likes to push under my feet.

She’s ready to kill ’em!

Featherland Paradise Trio Popsicle Sticks. Yellow, Orange and Red popsicle sticks, perfect for the chewer in your life.

Kiwi didn’t waste any time destroying them!

Prevue Pet Products Calypso Creations. A fun toy with ropes, plastic tubes and beads, coconut shell and colorful tissue paper.

Planet Pleasures Fan Small.

Made with natural fiber, wooden slates, corn hub, paper and shells, this toy provides a lot of different textures to entertain your bird. Kiwi just like to hide behind it, but whatever makes your bird happy!

NutriAve Peas & Corn. Kiwi is a picky eater, but I’m happy to get a treat in every box as it forces ME, the human, to get her to try new things instead of just letting the matter go.

So Kiwi hated them, but I know that her cousin, Kip the Quaker, will gladly do tricks to get the delicious corn.

This was an other great box. Kiwi’s favorite were the Bell Clanger and the Popsicle sticks. As usual, we tried the treats, but she only likes her pellets and her millet. She is a stubborn old bird, but maybe one day she’ll be ok with a treat! And it’s always fun when the humans get a little treat as well.

Kiwi and I love Squawk Box as it is great to discover new toys, and maybe new favorites. We really enjoyed the variety of texture, colors, and types of toys that we receive in every box, there’s always something she’ll like! It’s also a great way to get your bird less afraid of new things, and more curious about things around it.

I’m impressed by the variety of toys available out there as Kiwi has been subscribed to Squawk Box for a long time now and she received the same toy only a couple of times. And it’s usually a toy she loves and has destroyed, so it’s a win. 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!

Chirp!
