I made some new toys :)

It's been a while since I had a full on sit down and make toys session.. I usually just throw a couple shredders into a stainless steel kabob and that usually keeps ice happy.

But since I got tools for Christmas, I NEEDED to make some more, I think ice and I were both deprived

So here they are

They look amazing! With my growing flock - heck just the galah lol, I need plenty of foraging and shredder toys too.

Keep up the good work!

Thank you
I appreciate it!

They arnt the most appealing things, but who cares.. They get chewed up anyway


The foraging toy doesn't work, she found out how to undo the skewer in about 3 seconds and all it's contents spewed onto the cage bottom, which she then proceeded to go to her highest perch and grind her beak in amusement. Silly bird

I had to help her out a bit on the wooden chew, I chiseled off a few chunks of the wood to start her off..
She isn't much of a wood chewer, but I'm trying to get her into soft pines and balsa

The last one is a bit big and intimidating, but she got the hang of it and loves to hang upside down chewing on it
