In South Africa we have the saying “local is lekker” which refers to buying locally made goods which help our economy grow and helps support friends, families and fellow South African businesses. There are some great local suppliers of parrot goodies from around the country. Listed below are businesses which create safe products for your birds. Many of these businesses are owned by people who own rescued birds and support various parrot sanctuaries around the country as well as Cheeky Beaks Parrot Rescue.
