That looks like a lot of fun. I hope they get interested in it and start digging around.

Try opening the box and scattering a little of the treats around it....they may be confused because the box is closed and can't figure out that the treats are inside.
Once they figure out that the box has treats inside, and they get interested, you can try shutting one or two flaps, so they can partially open the box, and then eventually shut ALL the flaps, if they seem to be getting the hang of things.

I like your foraging box, but Ralph would take one look at it and sound the Quaker alarm call. It looks too much like the nasty cardboard box he had to be in when he came home from the pet store, and he hated that box.

I put a handful of clean hay in the bottom of the cage along with Otey's collection of stray feathers. He plays with both, although he has a couple of mobile toys he likes best. He also enjoys yelling at, then carting around, toilet paper tubes. I'll have to look into a foraging box--sounds like a good idea.
