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 (Chia Seed Pudding), and a Did You Know about parrots (the best parrots at imitating sounds). Every month, Squawk Box donates part of their profits to a new bird charity. July’s donation is to Iowa Parrot Rescue in Letts, IA.

Planet Pleasure Fiesta. Perfect for chewers, this toy is made with all natural and environmental friendly material.

Like any other Planet Pleasure toy, you can hide little treats (seeds, nuts, dried fruits) in the criss cross section to turn this shreddable toy into a foraging one!

Featherland Paradise Bird Toy. This toy has a mix of cotton rope, wooden beads and soft wood blocks.

a&e Cage company – Happy Beaks toy starbust. This one features vine stars with colorful plastic beads all strung on a plastic cord.

Like any toy, you need to check them carefylly before giving them to your bird. This one had a metal ring that wasn’t perfectly aligned, and knowing Kiwi, I had to set the ring with plyers. Not a big deal, just something to be aware with any kind of toy.

They both have bells. So what’s a bird have to do?

You gotta get your beak in the bell, of course. For reasons.

The bell is always the highlight of a toy.

Prevue Hendryx Brownie Bundle. Made with burlap jute and wood, this toy will bring a lot of different texture to your bird.

Even smaller beaks will enjoy chewing on the piece of wood.

Talon Treats Chia Seeds. Every month, your bird will receive a treat. Some bird don’t care for them at all (looking at you Kiwi), others will try anything they see their hooman try. So don’t worry, the treats are “hooman safe”! Usually, the monthly receipe will include the treat so you know what to do with them. This month Chia Seed Pudding is exactly the afternoon snack I make for myself (with unsweetened oat milk) and Kiwi is always trying to get a bite, although she changes her mind at the last minute. One day she’ll share my chia seed pudding. One day.

Kiwi really enjoyed her July’s Squawk Box. We love all the great texture she received and the bells. As for the treat, it’s on the “not tried yet, but it’s not offensive” pile!

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!
