    68C553A2-C0D6-4E83-BFA6-888F39773C61.jpeg I've always been mad at myself for not getting a 14” Jolly Ball from Blu’s bird toys when I had the chance so with Jan’s help and guidance, my husband and I were able to make our own. Hardware from Blu’s, hubby cut all the holes (14” ball does not come with the holes precut) and drilled for the hardware and I strung the toys. Layla absolutly loves it so although not nearly as gorgeous as Jan’s jolly balls- I’m thrilled with it. Thank you Jan for the info and help:)

    That's my amazon's FAVORITE toy. He gets inside and rolls over on his back, talking.

    She will love it!

    Great job! I didn't realize they came big enough for birds that large to go in!

    Thanks everyone! I knew Layla would take to it immediately. She squeezes into Mali’s 10” ball. She looks a bit like a chubby cat getting through a too small cat door. Lol. Jazzi hasn’t gone inside yet but has chewed on the toys so she’ll explore it soon enough I’m sure. :)

    How neat! I bought a 10 inch one, I still need to drill the holes for the hardware and stuff. Your fids look like they're having a blast :)

    Looks very good!
    The important thing is that they enjoy it. And it looks like she does indeed!

    Such a cutie! I have a bigger one in storage that Kishka used to like. We packed it away when we moved though and I'd be hard pressed to find it at this point. I have a ton of boxes I need to go through...sigh...

    Wow, this is gorgeous! My birds will pay with the "toy" part of the Jolly Ball I have, but won't go in it. Does Layla go inside the Jolly Ball?

    Oh yes. Her and Mali both go in. Jazzi won’t yet though. Layla even squeezes herself into the 10” and then needs rescuing which is why I had to make her her own big one lol 486E7A87-8CFC-45E7-BD48-F30229F3C40B.jpeg 0D92D0FB-96CF-427E-9EF6-77EED598A12B.jpeg 16AEED6F-9FDD-48F5-B1A5-EDF6D83685FD.jpeg

    Yep! She was cracking me up. I thought maybe she’d decide not to go in anymore but nope, she just kept on squeezing while I sang about her being too tubby. Lol

    I'll have to order some foot toys and make up some foraging treats to try and coax the birds in there!
