    How exactly do foraging toys work?

    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....

Things like little DIY foragers, reusing broken toys, using items found...

    Can you use a grill to bake wood?

    This sounds stupid, but I was wondering if it’s possible to use a grill to bake wood for disenfecting?
