My new playstand!

Today, I finally got round to making the birds a playstand.

Despite my terrible D.I.Y skills, the birds love it, and I think it's pretty good!

Much cheaper than buying a new one! A plastic one in a petshop near me is $25 and it has much less stuff than this. Plus, Ziggy would shred the plastic.

Bentley, surprisingly, was first to explore. I made things easy to reach so that his bad feet aren't an issue.

Anyway, here's some pics of the fid's enjoying the playstand....

I bet you could! I'm terrible at this sort of thing but I managed!

Why not give it a go? Or do you already have a playstand?
