    Affordable Bird Toys?

    I was recently browsing my local Petco, my hands clutching a mirror and bell toy, swing, fresh millet, and dried fruit, as I looked around at their bird toys.

    Used toys?

    I'm in the process of transforming a cage of mine into the ultimate bird cage. Between making sure it's completely safe and finding things to put in it, it's taking a bit of time. I often by used furniture items and have started looking at used bird toys. I'm hesitant to buy one, I'm a worrier...

    Lorie's new haul

    Cockatiel feather plucking (scratching with beak) back feathers

    A while ago she was laying dozen eggs but she has stopped. I'm now seeing her scratching (with her beak) the back feathers mostly. I think it's called "feather plucking" but she's not bald or have bare skin. I have seen some feathers on the floor and on the cage. And, one or two feathers still...

    Toy materials

    Are there certain materials to stay away from in making/purchasing bird toys? (The birds are lovebirds if that changes anything). I have a small hoard of small animals and I'm always buying them toys, often I buy them small bird toys as well since they are often made of the same materials...

    Toy suggestion for an African Grey

    short story: looking at an atom or a rope coil: something to extend the play space off a cage. long story: I bought Louise a 26x38x68 inches high cage and a cage that is 23x32 41 inches high guest cage for my friend's grey when he visits for socialization. Louise now spends all her time in the...

    Lots of goodies for the birds

    From Oliver's Garden SWS: Thanks Susan. From T4W SWS & RLS: T4W Beak Box: Thanks Danita and the Wingettes. My Bird Store sale: The only disappointment (very minor) with the order is that the hardwood arch swings now come with cotton rope instead of sisal. The rope will be removed.
