    Pictures Cotton Threads On Boing

    Are those cotton threads too long and a possible choking hazard? (I'm guessing so) And if so, could I just trim them? Also, is cotton a risk for ingestion? I'm trying to think of possible risks in Charlie's toys and eliminating them after reading all of the horror stories on this forum. Thank...

    Why sell something unsafe?

    I bought Ollie a new toy today, and didn't really look at it super closely since it's the same type of tennis shoes he's had before but a different manufacturer. When I got home I realized they were all tied and double knotted. I didn't get a pic before I untied them but all I could think was...

    Foraging Toys for Budgies

    I want to find new toys for my little budgie Twiggy. I want to find her a foraging toy, but I haven't seen many for small birds. I don't mind being recommended an online shop if it means getting a nice toy. :)

    How should I introduce my cockatiel to toys?

    Hello! I've recently gotten a pet cockatiel named Mika on Saturday (2/3/4), so I've had her for about 5 days. My mom says I should put toys in her cage while I'm at school so she's not so bored, though I'm not for sure on how to introduce her to them. I have a few different ones to show her, but...

    Pictures Is an oranges bag a safe toy?

    You know those meshy, plastic bags that oranges are sold in - would they be a safe toy for a cockatiel? I was planning to tie string to one so it hangs from the top of the cage but droops down so she has to stretch to reach any goodies inside. Is this a good idea? (Is this plastic...

    New perch design

    I really like the Wingdow perches, but would much rather build one myself as they are (understandably) very expensive. I am planning a similar approach myself (for personal use), but an approach that does not require vacuforming plastic. I am going to stick with milling a blank and then using my...

    Perch OVERKILL!

    Alrighty, get ready for a long one... I decided to take a break from the research project parts machining to do something fun. Went to the shop this weekend and made three neato perches for the finches. Ever since Charlie picked out his favorite spot on top of the kitchen cabinets, I decided I...

    Toys and Stimulation

    Sunflower is five months old now and she is a busy little birdie. She has free reign of the house about 90% of the day. We have made her a variety of toys, but she much prefers things that are not designed for birds. She is a pretty picky bird. I'm a little worried that she is not getting enough...

    Pictures The journey continues 2.0!

    So as most of you can guess, I have been doing more and more research as I have been "waiting" (More on that soon). A few days ago, I was basically at the point where I felt I had done all the research I could possibly do and my only next step was to foster (sorry, but still not going to just...

    Toys that attach to the side of the cage?

    Hi all! So the holiday season is upon us, and I've gotta get started on Christmas shopping for Chirp. I'm figuring on toys, maybe a couple of perches, probably some high-value treats (gotta love those almonds!). I'm planning on heading out today, and I've noticed that the lower 3/4s of his...

    Used toys?

    I'm in the process of transforming a cage of mine into the ultimate bird cage. Between making sure it's completely safe and finding things to put in it, it's taking a bit of time. I often by used furniture items and have started looking at used bird toys. I'm hesitant to buy one, I'm a worrier...
