Willow Baskets - Fun & Cheap

I love buying inexpensive willow baskets (about $2-$3) for the Fids. Here's one I hung in Geraldine's cage, and filled with foot toys and clean, old toy parts. You can also hang them from playstands and ceilings. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1324493495.729493.jpg

I find mine at Walmart! Cheap, and they seem to last a long time when hung strategically (ie. they don't get pooped on).

Nice idea! nice to have some fun safe cheap toys during the expensive holiday season Would filling it up with wet lettuce be good? I'd take it out after an hour or when they start pooping on it

That looks awesome! I had a smaller willow foraging basket like that but the birds destroyed it

I've seen that before. Baskets can be used in many ways. I've seen larger baskets with handles used as portable play stands. The bird perches on the handle and you can put toys or anything you want in the basket. You can also hang toys from the handle.

That's a great idea. I use these little willow canary nest pan things to put foot toys and toy parts in
