    DIY Depot

    I didn't see this anywhere else but I could be blind. One of my favorite things about having pets is making them things! From knitting them sweaters to making toys and baking cookies. One gets a bit tired of looking on pintrest... I know this one does lol! So what are some fun toys or treats...

    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...

    Dollhouse Wood Question!

    So my dad has old wood used to make dollhouses laying around and keeps trying to pawn it off on me for the birds. I'm what many would call overly cautious aka paranoid and if I haven't bought it myself or from a reputable place I won't use it usually. He's saying the wood is fine, but doesn't...

    Taking apart her foraging toys...

    Hi! I have a macaw, Ollie, who loves to figure out how things are put together... so she can disassemble them and chew on the metal parts (her favorite). She's figured out multiple foraging toys... and if i ziptie them to stay together, she figures how to undo that too! She can take apart...

    Mahogany Pods

    Does anyone know how hard they are to saw? I'm debating buying pods and sawing and drilling them myself to save some money since my guys go through it pretty quickly. I'm buying a hand held miter saw this weekend for the balsa blocks I ordered, would I need a new tool? I was assuming they're...

    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...

    Help! Lorikeet doesn't stop screaming!! Tried everything!

    hi guys! I'm a new member and I'm urgently seeking some advice from people who have successfully been able to get their bird to stop screaming. I've spent so much time and money trying to get my little guy to stop screaming and nothing has worked, and I feel like I'm at the crisis point now...

    Pictures 3 new budgies

    I am still in a huge shock so sorry if my grammar is not on point for this one.:jawdrop1: For you to understand this i have to explain why I decided to get Kiwi (my female budgie). We went to a friends birthday and we bought a budgie for him since he said he has wanted budgies for a long time...

    foraging troubles

    My GCC needs stimulation. She gets bored quickly. Trouble is, she's incredibly shy and timid and is terrified of any and all new toys. Any ideas for DIY foraging toys, or non-scary looking smaller ones that I can purchase? :cinnamongcc1:

    Pictures Lots of incoming acrylic toys and perches!

    So after spending some time getting to know the fids and their preferences, I have determined the need for some custom perches around the house (and eventual acrylic toys). Charlie loves to perch on top of the kitchen cabinets and on top of my spoon collection. He'll sit up there for quite some...

    Need ideas for foraging treats

    A couple weeks ago I bought a GCC. I'm constantly looking for new foraging ideas and trying to mix up the treats I put in them. I work night shift so I really stuff his cage full of snacks and foraging toys to help keep him busy/ quiet while I'm sleeping. So far it's working out well but I know...

    My budgie isn't a fan of toys

    Hi! I recently adopted an albino 4 month old budgie. It's been about a week since the adoption, and she is already loving her home. She eats, sleeps, drinks very easily. She enjoys strutting around my bedroom and exploring. She even likes to cuddle! One thing I've noticed is that she isn't fond...
