Squawk Box March 2020 Subscription Review

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

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 Parrot Pudding), and a Did You Know about parrots (chocolate is bad, but carob is good!). Every month, Squawk Box donates part of their profits to a new bird charity. February’s donation is to the Wires Wildlife Rescue in Australia!

“This is the toy I like.”

“Going in!!!”

Super Bird Creations Balsa Munch. This was a good toy in this month’s box. A bell, some soft and easy to chew wood, plastic chain and a bit of vine.

Featherland Paradise. The balsa wood blocks have different shapes, so they can be attacked differently. Perfect to get your chewer busy for a couple of minutes!

Planet Pleasures bird toy. Kiwi used to not care one bit about these toys, but as she gets older, she likes to have quiet toys. The spirals are made with straw and there’s a few palm leaves and coconut as well. The coconut is great to keep her beak sharp!

Prevue Hendryx Natural Toy. This toy is made with straw, bamboo, vine, wood, on a metal wire. It’s perfect to preen, destroy, and chew.

NutriAve – Golden Millet. So, this is ready to eat millet.

Delicious looking millet.

“I thought you didn’t like treats!”

“IZ MILLET!” Yeah, even your picky bird will like this one. I turned my back to grab something and she was trying to chew through the bag to get to the millet. Usually, I have a hard time getting her to try the treats, this time I have to hide them!

No surprise here, she loves it!

Kiwi loved this box, especially the millet treat! Her favorite toy is the one with a bell (of course) but she likes the Planet Pleasures one as an “outside the cage” toy as she can move it around as she pleases. Everything else was great as well, Kiwi couldn’t really decide what she wanted first (beside the millet!)

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!
