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, although she’s been quite hormonal lately and will not stand still for a picture. 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 Popsicle, perfect for hot days and great to share with the hoomans), and a Did You Know about parrots (Psittacines and Corvids are considered the most intelligent birds and among the most intelligent animals). Every month, Squawk Box donates part of their profits to a new bird charity. June’s donation is to the Companion Parrots Re-homed in Pineville NC.
Planet Pleasures Pineapple Foraging Toy (small). This cute shreddable toy is made with all natural materials and you can hide little treats in the folds.
a&e Happy Beaks Bagels and Bell. Made with plastic and paper rings, it also has a bell.
Of course, Kiwi got her beak on the bell. Sadly, the link holding the clapper is not properly closed and from a previous experience, a beak can get stuck on it after a while.
This bell will have to go for her safety, but the toy is still fun to attack and climb on. Always always inspect a toy before giving it to your bird.
Featherland Paradise Hanging Paddles. This is a winner for Kiwi. She loves destroying colorful ice cream sticks and tuck them in her tail. Especially when she’s hormonal. She’ll usually go for the orange and yellow one first (her favorite colors, yes birds have their favorite colors), but they’ll all be destroyed.
Although, she got to the paper tag first!
The toy is hanging from a metal chain (always check the links to prevent stuck toes or nails) and the paddles are seperated by colorful plastic beads.
Prevue Hendrix Tropical Teasers. It has felt, coconut and cardboard on a metal wire.
Kiwi loves to have a felt toy by her sleeping perch, she can snuggle with it, and it’s very soothing for her.
NutriAve Almonds. Every month, your bird gets a treat. Some birds like them, others, like Kiwi, don’t care at all for anything that isn’t their usual food or millet. But most of the treats are good for their Hoomans, so you can try them out and sometimes it’ll help your bird to try them out! I usually leave some of the treats with her normal food so she at least have to eat around them.
Kiwi loved this box, especially the ring toys, probably because of the bell! She won’t get close to the almonds, but I don’t mind as I love almonds. All the other toys were also hits and we appreciate that this month’s box had a lot of variety in textures to provide something to chew on or snuggle with.
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!
