    How to stop unwanted habit.

    My cockatiel loves preening my eyelashes and I hate it! I think she is trying to get the mascara off. Lol I like her close to my face so I can give her kisses and so she can kiss me and clean me, but she loves my eyelashes! Please let me know ways to prevent her from doing this. I’m not sure if...

    Are knit/crocheted toys safe?

    I was wondering if I could knit or crochet some toys for a bird. I’m worried they could get a loose thread and get tangled, or get their claws stuck in the yarn.

    Idea for Toys/Play Area. Would this Work?

    I would love to spoil my cockatiel, whenever I get the money to allow me to do so. I've spent some time thinking about what I would want to do, and I want to get some opinions to see if it's a good idea, would be safe, etc. I'm wanting to convert a cat tree into a playground for my tiel. I...

    New toys for Gila!

    After a bit, all the toys and bits and bobs I ordered for Gila are here at last! She didn't make any fuss while I was placing things in, and has been meeting her new toys. The stairs are too big to fit in that cage :( Really need a new one, this is getting out of hand quite fast. When I...

    Pictures Quick and easy toys

    I just pulled out the supplies to make a few toys to give the bird something new to play with or shred. I thought I'd share, they're really nothing super special but they do the job, they're colourful and cater to what my birds like and what they are allowed. These sort of toys really don't...

    Pictures Cage tour! Bird's eye view!

    So I have been working on this cage literally for weeks. I made my own natural wood perches and rope perches. I also had a bit of ordering troubles, sending back of toys that didn't quite meet up with safety standards. But now I believe I am finally about done! I may add a few more small...
