    Pictures What are your bird's favorite toys?

    I was just curious what kinds of toys your bird likes the best? Please, if possible, post pics and what kind of bird you have too! :laugh: I have a cockatiel and her favorite toy hands down is this one by bonka bird. I ordered it from amazon.

    Cage suggestions?

    We're getting ready to welcome a little pineapple GCC towards the end of June, and I'm working on slowly getting things ready before that. We're slowly switching out our pans with ceramic, bird-proofing the house, removing dangerous chemicals and the like. I've got some perches and toys...

    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...

    What kind of toys do your linnies like to play with? Tried a few now but my linnie doesn't really seem interested in it.

    New cage setup, open to suggestions!

    Hello fellow bird nerds! So I am actually waiting on a replacement part because the top of my Prevue Hendryx cage is not fitting correctly (you can see its wonky in the photos) but I thought I would go ahead and play around with "stuff" placement anyway. I'm still working on getting some...

    I accidentally just spent $400 on new toys at Petsmart lol

    Bipolar disorder is a horrible thing to deal with, but apparently it's GREAT for the fids because I just spent a whoooole lotta moola on new toys for them. :laughin: Granted I also got some stuff for my other nine animals, but the VAST majority is new birdie toys. It's going to be an adventure...

    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...

    Where to buy toys in Europe?

    Hi guys! Does anyone have any recommendations for online pet stores/websites that sell good toys and ship to Europe? I´m in Malaga, Spain and use Zooplus and Tiendanimal. Is there any others? It would be nice to mix it up and try new toys from new places :) Thanks :)

    Pictures Cage set up advice

    I've had Tango for over a year now, and this is her first cage. I'm very aware that cockatiels need lots of toys and stimulation. I rearrange and switch out almost all her furniture when I clean out her cage. I keep the door open all day so she can move around as she likes. I put lino on the...

    Something I've noticed...

    So I've mentioned before that my Kiwi doesnt have much interest in playing with toys - but she does have a few staples... mostly things that go crinkle or crunch. Well one of her favorite toys that we try to keep stalked up on is the braided pieces of straw (does anyone know what I'm talking...

    zinc in my toys? where to find stainless steel

    hiya! so recently i read up on zinc toxicity in birds and read about how to test for zinc using magnets. I tested all of my birds toys and all the metal parts on them are magnetic! so that means it can't be stainless steel or aluminium which are bird safe as far as i know and according to the...
