the "ring toss" perch

here is my new toy idea! this can easily be made bigger for larger parrots


"the ring toss perch". rings from MySafeBirdStore.com


and for butch i also have it as a veggie kebab. he hasnt warmed up to it though :P i put it in and he flew all around. he loves lettuce, but he hasnt gone near it yet xD



with a vine ball on top

thanks!

and another toy i just made in hopes to get butch interested in pellets while being entertained with things to feel with his beak!


i call it "The Board Game" shown with seed until butch get used to the toys (he is soooo scared with the ring toss perch )

materials top left to right: coconut rope, plastic pacifier, polar fleece knot, vine ball, beaded string with ring

materials bottom left to right: jute knot, mirror (to attract him :P), and a loose ring
