Default A simple idea that made a hit!

Yesterday, i got a great idea. I thought that if i make origami paper ball my budgies would spend hours figuring out. So what i did was make 4 paper balls, each with increasing difficulty level, fill them with millet and placed them in their cage. As soon as my birdies heard the click, the rushed over the bowl. That is when the fun starts. All Chizu did was shred the paper, eat millet, and shred again. However, Pedro emptied the millet, dropped the ball and started playing football with it.Here is the pic of the paper balls:

Each took less than a minute and i am going to make some everyday. Hope you like it.

Thanks guys!
It is so funny to think that something so little for us can bring on so much amusement to our little flock members. And in return they stay by our sides and make us laugh us all day long. So it is always rewarding doing something for them.

Wow! these look awesome! Any instructions for us regular folk?
I don't think I can figure it out myself from your photos, but I would definitely like to try these.

Maybe I'll string them up and put something different in each.

This is just genius!!! I was crumpling up little bits of paper and hiding millet but they didn't seem to know that there was a treat to be found and didn't really work out. I think this is perfect and they can see that there is something inside to get at, with your little ball/bowls. Now I want to go try this.
