just when i thought i was done toy making...

so i made 3 toys today and i put everything away, posted the pics, and tried to take lenny out (he didnt want to come out today). i put the birds back in my room and i watched them. butch goes over to the hay box and just starts literally throwing the hay everywhere and trying to rip out, rather than eat, the millet chunk i shoved in there. then i have this genius idea to make little foot toys to put in the foraging cup that butch can chew and throw around.
so while i let my bunny out to run, i started making toys.

the majority of them are pony beads and jute rope, but there are 2 with the snowflake shaped beads (in the middle), and in the top right i have bundles of hay, tied in the middle with rope. right middle there are bundles of hay with pony beads around them. and lastly i have 4ths of cupcake liners with pony beads. i plan to give them to him when i separate them (if i can still do that ... long story...)
the lights made everything yellowish, but the hay is green and i do check it for mold before using

Explain about the separation if you don't mind? I wanna know now! Without being a pain that is

They're really cool! I'm sure they will love them

well i can take lenny out of the cage now but using a perch. butch will only put on foot in the perch and he will take longer to train. i want to bond with lenny, but it is hard when butch is there. so i am getting another cage identical to the one i have and that will be lennys. then i can take him out and bond with him then i can work with butch and eventually bond with him. when that is all done they will come out together and probably live together again. it will also give butch a chance to get away from lenny. sometimes lenny takes his seat and bullies a little, nothing serious. and it will let butch have fun with the foraging cup and toys. plus if i put millet in there, he can eat it when usually lenny eats in all . they will be housed next to each other and across the room and will both have mirrors (they love them ). lenny will also get the same toys as they have now as well as a foraging cup and some of my DIY toys

that happens a little with mine. but it is usually only lenny getting scared but the outside birds while butch just happily eye pins. butch seems to be his own person and pays no attention to lenny except for singing to him
