A bird can easily become unhappy by sitting in an empty birdcage all day. Birds have strong beaks and active minds that need to be occupied to keep them happy and engaged. Boredom is the leading cause of plucking in birds, which results in birds pulling out their feathers. This is why it's important to choose the best swings and toys for your pet bird. When selecting swings and toys for your bird, think about the following:
Size- When picking a swing or toy for your bird, make sure that it is the appropriate size. Some swings and toys are designed for little birds and aren't safe for your large bird. Larger pet birds have more powerful beaks, which can quickly damage toys meant for smaller birds. Broken pieces from these toys can be a possible choking hazard.
Types- Bird toys are available in different forms with different functionalities. Some toys require foraging, some encourage exercise, some are puzzles, some make noise, and some are foot toys. Some toys are meant to comfort your pet birds, while others are intended to minimize anger and stress. Get your bird different types of toys to keep him/her entertained. Different types of toys will also keep your bird challenged, release aggression, and keep fit.
Personality- You can know your bird's toy personality through observation. This will help you to select the most effective swing and toy for your pet bird. Which types of materials, textures, colors, and/or shapes does your bird choose? Observe how your bird interacts with different toys, colors, and materials, and use your findings to make the best bird perch and toy selection that will keep your pet entertained.
Safety- Avoid poorly built perches and toys at all costs. Also, stay clear of toys with areas that could trap your birds' head or pinch your bird's toes. Keep in mind that a bird can get his little beak into anything, so make sure that the toys and perches you get are tough enough. This will prevent the risk of them breaking them, or even your bird swallowing the busted items.
Toy rotation- Just like kids, birds also get bored quickly; that is why it's essential to rotate their toys. Do not put all the toys in the cage. Instead, put a few and rotate them occasionally. Also, ensure you hide the others where he or she can not see them. After a week or so, replace the toys in the cage with the hidden toys. Rotation also gives you a chance to clean the toys without bothering the bird.

Best place to go for reptiles and info about them! Staff is awesome!!! Great prices!
Someone told me that Buckles offers a hoist for nail trims. My dog gets VERY stressed and reactive to nail trims and medications that my vet trialed with her had mediocre results at best. Buckles got her up in the hoist and it went SO WELL. She was a little nervous, of course, but behaved very well and the Buckles employee was very thorough and careful with her dark nails. Additionally, nail trims at Buckles are super-cheap... $5 without the hoist or $10 with the hoist. They also offer a great selection of treats and toys. Shopping local is very little extra effort when there are excellent places like this!
Buckles is always top notch. They've got just about everything you could want for any pet, and the staff is super knowledgeable and super friendly. You can get everything from lizard lights to horse food.
Big variety of food and toys, knowledgeable clerks, but awkward parking.
A very good business, I am so glad they are there when we need them
