Very nice! Very creative! I love making bird toys, SO much cheaper and they play with the homemade ones just as much as the store bought one! It's much more fun watching them destroy a homemade toy that cost pennies than a fancy $$$ toy!!! LOL!

haha mine hate store bought ones so much that i actually have to bring them with me when i go actually get some LOL if they look interested when i hold it up for them i found their toy. then i let them play with it until we get home lol then it goes in the cage. rare i find toys i can buy them (gotta watch with some stuff as dally cant have paper or cardboard because she eats it. and tiels get very hormonal and naughty with paper and carboard anyways lol)
