When someone mentions cork, first thing that comes to mind is vine, right? Well, there’s a bigger picture behind it in the parrot world. Cork, as you can see it as a stopper in vine bottles, is the end product. It all starts from a cork oak tree, to be precise it’s bark.
Cork oak is a tree native to South-West Europe and North Africa and from there it’s transported all over the world and than used in various products. Cork oak bark is thick, but soft what makes it an excellent choice for a natural parrot chew toy, you can make it into a swing, a balcony and anything else your creativity gives you.
Be sure you’re buying untreated, unprocessed cork oak bark, because it’s the only safe cork for your parrots.
