Ordering Goodies? I'll say and then some! I just got done putting your order into my program for your Invoice/Receipt... thought I'd never get done! LOL!

Most orders that do not consist ofa Jolly Ball with toys will go out on Monday but for those who have Jolly Balls with toys... well, those do take time and did you know that my hubby does a fabulous job on the jolly ball toys? Yep! I have him trained well and don't have to pay him!! :hehe:

Thank you everyone and AJ - you ordered twice because you wanted to add the toy hangers, so I will adjust for your shipping costs and you'll get some credit back from that.

Thanks so much!

Oh, one more question on the shelving unit - thats chrome right?

I also enjoyed myself with the online shopping! I didn't expect to spend as much as I did but it was so much FUN to look, add, and buy!
I didn't think chrome plating was safe for birds...i would lean more towards making a pvc gym....

I thought you can't trust the coating on the shelves? I'd love to get a shelf set up like that, as long as it's safe. So...is it?
Only just noticed Danny's playgym being referenced :)

You can get them in plain SS, without the coating. I'm not concerned with mine as Danny chew's his toys, not his gym, and there's no flaking.

IMO, you cant get the same degree of stability and sturdiness in a pvc gym for a structure this large.

You are probably right Steve...I would go for the SS shelf though.

Not sure you know but Nani had zinc poisoning recently...we think it may have been the shower curtain rod...and it might have been chrome...I am a big worry wort now~!

Thanks for everyones continued discussion on the shelving unit and their concerns and experience with it. I'm no in a hurry to go get one so I will do some more shopping around to see if I can find a SS one and go from there. You all ROCK!

I got a massive one from Lowes which is brushed nickel & much safer than chrome. it is the base to my massive play center that is in the works! It is top-secret until it is finished!

I bet if you were really nice, email them, most of them would let you have the sale today too :)
It looks like almost all. I see birdnerds and choppers are all weekend
Plus the ones that announced it in the Marketplace
