    Bells: yes or no?

    Hi everyone! I see so many posts and videos and webpages about how great bells are for birds, but then I see the horror stories of birds’ beaks, feet, etc getting caught in them. So my question is… are bells bad or good? Is there a more complicated answer? Thanks!

    Budgie hangs out at the bottom of cage and other questions

    So I heard budgies or other birds stay at the bottom of their cage if there's a problem. Cloudy is a healthy budgie and goes to the top of his cage to eat and sleep, but for the majority of the day stays at the bottom. I think it may be because he loves the sola ball toys down there, but I'm not...

    Any good out of cage toy advice?

    I wanna get toys and such for outside the cage so that it feels more inviting for Aro to play in given he seems a little nervous to explore, but I feel completely clueless on where to even start. I've been looking into play gyms but all the ones that would be a good size for him are pretty...

    I'm looking at a few different kinds of Sola toys on Amazon right now, and im stuck on which ones to choose because I'm not sure what's best for a budgie. They all say foot toys, and I'm not sure I've seen budgies use foot toys before Here are the links: https://a.co/d/9FmpFUb...

    How exactly do foraging toys work?

    I was looking at toys for Tteok, and noticed that anything listed as “foraging” was weirdly expensive. So I thought I’ll make some myself! Got rattan ball thingies, some finger traps, tissue paper (the kind usually stuffed in gift bags), and some twine. Sixty minutes, lots of cussing, and much...

    So I recently decided to add a tree stand for my two cockatiels next to their cage. The only issue was that I couldn’t find something narrow (but tall) enough and I didn’t want to spend an outrageous amount of money. I found an Etsy shop that happened to be semi-local to me called Blooms &...

    Advancement of a chewer?

    Formatting will not be great cause I'm on mobile. So! My Jade is learning about toys still. She started with preening strings (not fabric, but grass type) to sea grass and other stringy things she would run her beak along.... Then she discovered she can actually remove pieces from her toys and...

    How to make things at ¨zero¨ cost?

    I thought it would be a cool idea for us to have a thread where we can all post tips, ideas, inspiration and tutorials on how to make things for our birds (toys, foraging activities, accessories) at basically ¨zero¨ cost. Things like little DIY foragers, reusing broken toys, using items found...

    What are your favorite ways (or your budgie's favorite) to entertain you budgie?

    Hi all, My budgie, Lemon, is super active and I am trying to figure out new ways to entertain her. She gets free reign of the house when I am home, which is most of the day. She is fully flighted (I firmly believe that she is a bird and is meant to fly. It would be like not allowing a...
