So, what kind of bird toys do parakeets and cockatiels like? Survey says that little birds like bird toys with a shine – like bells and mirrors. Parakeets in particular tend to bond with their reflection, though, so be wary of buying a mirrored bird toy. Our best-selling parakeet and cockatiel bird toys are those made from natural fibers such as palm leaf, straw, and coconut hair.
