Waste of Money

I bought the Large version for my conure. It's way bigger than I expected, but whatever. These were the real problems I noticed:
1. The wheel is impossible to move. I can't even move it with both hands. So it's basically worthless as a "foraging" activity.
2. The wheel came with a giant sticker covering the front and when I attempted to remove it (because I didn't want my bird eating the sticker and the glue underneath), it left a ton of sticky residue. When I attempted to scrub off the residue it somehow melted?leaked? into the actual toy in such a way that only taking it apart would clean it. The tag comes with a small picture showing all the pieces of the wheel separately but absolutely NO direction on how to actually take it apart or what tools to use.
If you're looking for a foraging toy, look elsewhere. If you're looking to waste money, you'd probably have more fun lighting a 20 on fire and watching it burn.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I have this for my rats and they LOVE it. It is a great way to keep their busy minds occupied in non-destructive ways. It took a couple of weeks, but both of my rats have figured out how to manipulate the wheel to get treats out. I would agree with the previous reviewer that this is meant for medium and small birds- conures, goffins, mini macaws- but definitely not amazons, greys, macaws or large cockatoos.
I would recommend this to a friend!

only for small birds

I bought this wheel, that was advertised for medium to large birds, for my cockatoo. She took it apart within just a few minutes and managed to loose the pin, that holds the wheel together. The design is just not strong enough to be used for anything bigger than a small conure.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
