Think a GCC could solve this?

I'm going away for a week and ice is staying with my parents. Do you think she could figure this out?

It's pretty big! Bigger than her!!

I bought that for my Quaker and it was huge I left it in his cage and he tried to play with it but he gave up after a while then went days without looking at it maybe ice will be more determined lol

They look like great fun. I saw some in a local pet shop, but didn't get one as I thought it looked too big for my GCC. If you give it a go, let me know if your birdie likes it!

Cheers

I have one for my Zon, it's not the easiest thing to turn around at all, even for me lol. He ended up just hitting it till the food worked its way around and fell down or he left it.

It's $20 and i think she will be to scared of it.

It will probably be to hard for her to turn anyway.

I'll try to find another one!!

Get one of these. I have it in Maxx's cage at all times. Great for treats. Also put a container of foot toys in her cage. Some days he plays with none of them, other days every one is scattered on the bottom of his cage.

He also just got this and loves it.

This was one of his first, and he got the first cup pretty quickly. It gets harder as he goes down. I put in back in his cage from time to time and he still enjoys it.

I love all of those bob.

But my petsmart only has this one :/

I'd love to find this toy for ice
http://www.busybeaks.com/63130_carousel_forager.htm

I just can't find it and I don't want to buy it online

I guess I'll just have to go tommorow and buy multiple toys for her do she isn't bored while im gone

Make em Daisy,
Get old clear jelly tubs, clean em out.
Put a hole in the bottom.
Buy some hemp rope or like from B&q and boil it.
Thread a disc of cardboard same size as top of pot.
Knot underneath ppt.
Voila, foreaging cup.
Bob loves his.
I think I posted it in the captive foreaging thread.

That idea sounds cool Kate. I have never been a fan of those types of spinning forging toys because how would a bird even know how to take it out. I like the shelf box that Scully had was nice though because it was super easy...
