I'm not sure if any of you have thought of doing this, or if has been suggested before, but my little guy loves playing with this simple toy..
The simple bread bag clip.. (these things)
After giving them a quick wash in some hot water, just clip them to one of the cage bars and let the fun begin.. My little guy will sit there for hours flipping and moving them up and down the bars of the cage.. When he finally managed to pull one off the cage bars, he sat and whistled until I put in back on... LOL..
Just make sure that they don't have any of the mold flashing left on them that they could break off and swallow (cut it off with a sharp knife)...
I have not had any problems with them in the 10 years that I've been putting them on the cage, but if anyone can see any issues with using them, please share your thoughts..
That looks like a nice toy! I've never seen those around here, but my budgies always loved to play with bottle caps and similar things. I think as long as you keep an eye and the plastic is hard enough for them to not be ble to break & swallow, it will be fine. Of course any damaged plastic toy should be tossed and replaced with a funnier one, but that is common sense.
I have 8 parakeets, a cat, a rabbit, 2 frogs, 2 newts, about 22 self cloning marbled crayfish, 7 fish tanks, and 2 bettas. my 9 'keets are beyond spoiled with my DIY toys and 2 big trees to play on
