Smile Post your play gyms!

lately i have been seeing some good play gyms on here and a lot of talk about people making their own. I thought it would be a great idea if we posted pics of our play gyms. it will help us get ideas for adding or making a gym

you can post your free sending gyms, table/cage top, hanging gyms, etc! post a pic even if you have another tread with a pic of your gym. my hope is to make this the go-to place for gym ideas!

big or small, post them all

have fun


my 2 trees and 4 play gyms!






and for a size comparisonů i am about 5' 6". after looking at the pictures i take, i think it looks smaller with me near it it is still pretty big in person

I love everones so far! And I love the idea of many around the house so you can take them any where

Daisy where do your birds play? It sounds like you have a giant flock

I wish I could take credit for making it, but it was a talented friend of mine.



And their smaller (store-bought) one:

Thanks! It's actually sandblasted manzanita. Java wood is really slippery...I used to have a small java tree for my tiels and I had to wrap the perches in vet wrap so they could get a decent grip! The manzanita is much rougher and easier for them to perch on.

Oh wow! I'm so jealous of all of these! The only play gym I have is very small and pathetic...LOL! But Petrie loves it, and that's all that matters.

usually on the weekends in the mornings, most of the flock is crowded onto the hanging triangle gym! it is so small, but they seem to like it more than the tree sometimes

in my pictures on here it in on the right and hanging from the ceiling

mine uses branches that are a foot long. recently i tried adding a see to make it square, but it became very flimsy and would fold up, so i put it back to a triangle.

here is my thread about how i made it:
