This is our 2nd Smograsboard from Seriously Nutz. Last time, I was able to keep putting the little plugs back in until Rupert destroyed it, and overall it lasted a long time.

The 2nd one has only been in a couple of days, and already, I can't plug the upper half of it.

He is still deathly afraid of Mr. Gingerbread, but Rupert has done some nibbling. I've been shoving his favorite sunflower seeds in the grooves to tempt him.

I don't have a picture of our 2nd Yankin Your Chain toy, but the bottom of his cage looks like an explosion of wood confetti.

Ripley does drive by beatings of his Gingerbread man.... Whips him against the playstand and then leaves him behind :lol:

Probably the same thing that's been happening to that snowflake from LMBT. That's his second one, too. :roflmao: I bought a duplicate and forgot I had it.

Rupert will go out of his way to avoid the Gingerbread man. I think last night was the bravest I'd seen him - he was on the perch underneath the toy. But he still very very tentatively took a sunflower seed from him. :embarassed: You know what they say, don't trust someone who smiles ALL the time.

All you little bird owners want to refill the holes over and over. :facepalm: The big smorgasboard..... You fill those buggers and hammer the plugs in. If you want the treat you have no choice but to chew it out!

If you want a forever one.... Wouldn't you then just buy the pine one? :confused:

I'm not complaining, I just think it's funny that he dug in to it so quickly compared to the first. He's usually a bit of a tortoise, ya know? Slow and steady.

He gets discouraged if things are too difficult. I just leave enough of the plug that he can beak it.
