Get a load of this shredding toy.

Get a load of this shredding toy. It's made from a rubber foraging toy stuffed with umpteen ice block sticks.

Tilly loves it and it keeps her busy for days before I have to start all over again.







Cheers,

John.

that would last my budgies for months! If they could work up the courage to check it out. They're convinced everything is out to eat them.

It only takes a few minutes to replace the chewed down sticks, and it certainly keeps Tilly occupied, plus it's enjoyable eating the ice blocks popsicles in this extremely hot weather.

Cheers,

John.

Here's that shredding toy after just six days of Tilly gnawing away at it.



Cheers,

More like saw dust, she really does a job on them. Of course it makes a mess in the bottom of the cage and requires constant cleaning, but hey, that's what I'm employed for .

That's a great toy! Tilly looks like she loves it!

I always told our birds that if I could only a job for them in a match stick or tinder making factory they could pay for all those great toys and treats we buy them!
