wanted to share all my DIY stuff!

i thought that i would take a pic of all me DIY perches, toys, and foraging toys.

first, here are my new ones.

i spent all morning tying these together in certain places. i put millet in them. the second on i made came out a lot straighter. this is the 1st



this is the other toy i made today. it was kind of complicated with putting in all the strings for the beads and the cupcake paper.



ok here is all my home made DIY stuff


the fixed ladder from a while back:


(from left top) 2 egg carton millet foraging cones, [plastic chain], egg carton lettuce holder, origami hay box (i usually add cheerios, oats and millet to it), foraging cup


my favorite toys, most have not been tested.


sent me a message if you want me to post pics on how to make any of the toys!

What did you use to hold up the egg carton cups? Great idea!

i used the paper covered twist ties. i probably shoudnt but my guys dont shred them so they are never exposed. anything that would be exposed would be hung/ attached by jute rope.

all of the those things on the cage piece are big hits in the cage. they both love lettuce and lenny gets obsessive over the millet cones. they both like playing with the hay too oh and the foraging cup is a real favorite! they like to throw everything out so i have to put everything back like 3+ times a day
