an easy way to attach cuttlebone

i have never gotten a cuttle bone holder because i have never liked them.
i have always tied the bone to the cage with jute, until i found an easier way and it makes 99.99% of the cuttle bone available!!

just make a hole all the way through- the rest should be self-explanatory you can use a bell or anything you prefer

Excellent idea! I've always bought the bigger cb holders with two perches and put toys by them so they could also play with toys there, but this is a great idea
