She's broke the one in her cage and pulled the little green ringer out. So I'll give her this one. I have a huge bag full. I buy them in packs of three and the orange ones are her favourite.

Nala loved her Hugh from Shawna and Rainbow Trout from OG so much. She slept under her trout until the day I lost her and she'd play with and have her Hugh's drapped over her always she couldn't get enough of it.

Fergus and Fiona are SO fickle when it comes to toys, but if I had to say - I'd guess that would be tree limbs / sticks from around my yard. Fi is such a chewer, and Fergus joins her occasionally. And I guess you've SEEN their toy collection? STICKS??? REALLY??? :lol:
(please excuse the messy corner, the bird toys overflowed!)

The best and the cheapest toy ever! Burt loves them too and given how fast he can get through them when he is in beaver mode I am really pleased how much he is happy to just have chunks of wood.

Squeak loves the balsa rods I buy and use as customisable perches for him- he goes to town on them so they fall and I have to re position what he has left and he starts all over again. Watching him with his balsa rods reminds me of videos of less than clever people standing on the branch of a tree that they are cutting but they are on the wrong side of the cut. It is pretty funny and he looks at me like I take to too long to come replace it.

Seen so many others say their birds loved these so I bought a little bag of them for Burt and of course it is the least exciting toy he has apparently :rolleyes: I try switching it for the blocks he likes to play surprise catch with (this is where he knows we are going to play the game but he starts when I am not looking and I get a block in the head- or a half pumpkin like yesterday) but he looks at me with displeasure when I throw that to him to grab and throw back to me and then he just walks off and finds another thing to occupy his time.

Absolutely. I can't recall who told me to do this but it's been the best hack ever. She goes through the fancy toys too quickly and they're too expensive for that :cautious:

Pico's recent favorite has been just plain simple mahogany pod hung up on a rope 20231116_180041.jpg
20231014_182318(0).jpg
I've almost gone through a bulk order of these mahogany pods now (it's pretty cost efficient for me so I can't complain though) :D

Sonny's favorite is still the Sweet Dreams swing from Lil Monsters he loves to preen on, chew and hang off it :laugh:

Could have probably been any one of us with large birds I would think- I know there is a few of us who offer boring large chunks of wood as the constant supply of fancy toys is just too much to justify. I use the wood chips in the bottoms of my plant pots.

That mahogany pod has been well chewed- my big guys smash them to chunks about that size when they take them and my little guy wont usually touch them for some stupid reason. I dream that one day Squeak will enjoy chewing them like your sweetie has.

He does lose interest in them once theyre too small to be hung though so I have multiple chunks of these chewed up mahagony bits I just end up throwing in their foraging trays :roflmao:

Aww hopefully Squeak does try them out someday! Maybe the size intimidates him?
