    Good read, thanks. And I had to laugh because I have bought a toy very similar to the one in the picture. I won't do that again.... :)

    Great article John! Thankyou for sharing :)

    Echo will play but is a rather slow chewer and sometimes I find myself frustrated with that. I'm always sad when I walk into the birdroom and see no evidence of him playing. Which happens more often than I'd like. I'm so happy when I find a mess :smuggrin:Lately thou I have heard him playing or at least banging one of his toys around. Now give him more variety of woods, which means more softer woods like cork and basal, thou I still often him basswood and pine. He also likes grooves and embedded beads in his wood. While I'd still like to see him destroy toys faster giving him more of a variety to pick from has helped. So if you have a slow chewer like me, I highly recommend giving softer woods a try :) I think too often we label this type of wood is just for smaller birds, when bigger birds might enjoy it too. Just my two cents :2cents: :)
