Default Jays new Swing

As a treat for Jay because he is doing really well with his hand training all of a sudden I decided he can have a swing that I had but never put in the cage... he went nuts with this new toy. And I had to share it with you. This is why I love Jay, he has so much character and determination.

Budgies love swings and I have multiple swings in all my birds' cages.
I'm glad you gave Jay the new toy - he obviously loves it.
It's wonderful to see him so happy and active.

When you can, please try to replace the dowel perches in Jay's cage with Natural wood perches. You can see examples in this thread:

Budgies need perches of varying diameters to help exercise their feet and legs and help prevent pressure sores.

Best wishes!

That's great, I'm glad Jay likes the new swing so much and started to play on it right away!
Mine also love their swings and choose them as their favourite sleeping spot for the night.

I did put sticks in but he didn't like it so I'm slowly introducing him to natural sticks, I am also looking for some long ones like the ones that came with the cage. They seem another good option

Alan, you could always try the Natural Bird Company who make perches for various cage sizes.

Full length cage perches

It's very sweet seeing Jay playing with his new toy. I'm sure a slow introduction of some new toys over time would be great for him.

That's so adorable that Jay enjoys his new swing so much What a sweetheart!

Emma's suggestion to order from the Natural Bird Company is great, they make custom perches to fit any length of cage and are made of natural wood

I agree with Therm and Star that The Natural Bird Company would be a good choice for getting toys and perches for Jay.

It will take Jay a little while to get used to any new perches you put in his cage. One thing you can do is put the new items outside the cage where he can see them for a couple of days.
Then perhaps hang them on the outside of his cage for a couple of days before introducing them into his home.

Putting new items into the cage early in the day will help him have a period of time to adjust to them before bedtime.
