Toy opinion

I am wanting something like this:
http://www.scarlettsparrotessentials...o_mural_medium

for my aviary, I have seen cargo nets, activity walls etc but have not found any peoples experiences with them.

My Aviary currently houses Budgies, Bourkes and Quail but could also contain Zebra Finches at some point if I put them back together.

I need something like that I can hang from the aviary roof and attach toys and hide food around to keep them interested, something that is also safe to chew on but not something they can get tangled in.

So any experiences with something like this? Or any suggestions you have used yourself.

Which store?

Have ordered the large one lol, too late now, though at 7 it's not that expensive and if it is too small for my liking I'll just adjust it into something else

Is it better to buy toy parts from Scarletts and make your own or buy the whole toy, does anyone know? I got to get my paypal account sorted out then I shall try Scraletts. So toy parts or the whole toy? which is cheaper and better? Sorry I can't answer the original question.

Send them an email and they will tell you the cost of shipping to Canada and if they can do it. They are really nice people

It depends on what sort of toy you want to be honest, I have bought toy making parts and toys and then toys I have taken apart to make something else.
As for paypal you don't need one to buy from them you can just use your card

They do have some good toys and stuff and some well cared for animals but I don't really think much of the birds. They have loads and loads of products for other animals though
