Coolest bird toy ever!

I got this orange coil thing at the bird mart for $10. I wanted something to use on Oliver's gym because the perches are so wide and Gemma has baby feet.

Anyway I love this thing. You can slip toys on it and use it for so many things. Plus, it only needs a quick wipe for cleaning. Oliver wasn't scared of it either. Gemma wasn't but that didn't surprise me.

Things are going great with them. She went in his cage yesterday and he was preening her in there...big step. Gemma is also attached to me like she has known me forever, but is protective of Oliver. Oliver is even staying up later now, lol! Being the old man he is, he would demand bed by 730 prior to her. Now he'll stay up to 8, lol. So glad I knew him well enough to know how to make him happy.

Oliver looks very content. I may have seen that orange coil thingie at the bird show. Cozette and Mina look comfortable too. I wish miss Kauai was a better companion for miss Chanel .

Did you mention that you got a second budgie? Maybe Mina and Miss Chanel can have sleep overs. You do live about 5-10 minutes from me I think.

The playgym is purchased. We added a whole bunch of pegs and food cups, but the structure we got from the bird farm. Way cheaper than online. Gemma is the blue plet. The other name just didn't fit.

Really!? Thank you! It is just so hard to get the right name. Esme' had came in first and Gemma second with the various polls and yeah, it was so hard between the two. But overall, she seems a little more bold and Gemma feels more bold to us. Yeah Mina and Z are adorable. ♥
