Default A Few New Treats

Decided to order a few little treats for the budgies.

A double swing, for Jimmy & Sunny



A new toy for Sage.



And some little mini toys for the others cages too.

Therm, I just love these! If I was one of your budgies, I would give you a big hug They look wonderful toys, intriguing, waiting to be explored & chewed. Love the rainbow arch swing: I'm a sucker for singing colours and those are doing that very loudly & musically!

Interestingly, It was my question whether budgies could see colours that brought me to the forum in the first place. This was because I had noticed Peta went immediately to the short columns of bright little acrylic beads that I added to her swing, almost before I could hang it up. She spends a lot of time playing with them, mouthing them, lifting them up and letting go to make a clatter. I found the answer here, and wasn't surprised that it was a yes.

Hope your flock love them madly!

PS Out of interest, if you don't mind the question, did you get the materials from pine4parrots?

Ann,

I do have one swing with beads on already but have never seen the guys play with the beads. The idea of getting the double swing is that Jimmy and Sunny both love their swings and he likes to sit right next to her but Sunny likes her space, so I'm hoping that they might enjoy this one to share.

I'm sure my budgies are grateful for all the toys they get. They do use pretty much everything I get for them so I feel happy enough spending on them. I know the sorts of toys they like by now and all of their cages have different items in so if they switch cages, they have new fun things to play with.

All of these items I'll be order from The Natural Bird Company. It's based in the U.K. and is excellent. I already ordered a slate based perch for them from them and some paper rolls which they just love to chew up.

This is the table top perch:

They asked if I wanted some holes for toys or treats to go in and when I said yes, they also provided me with a couple of little toys for the guys amusement.

They do have toy making parts here as well. I'm just very lazy.

Wonderful choices, Emma!

I'll be looking forward to seeing pictures of Jimmy and Sunny sharing their new swing.

It sure is great to pamper the birdies and surely your flock will make good use of the new presents you will be getting them!

Aren't we all! I love that you have bought a double swing so they can swing cuddled up together. Bless!! I also like the look of the slate stand. Will you hang toys on that?

I do like the look of the naturalbirdco. Haven't browsed too closely yet because my coffers are a bit depleted after all the expenses of a new baby--I would be too tempted by all the goodies! Am trying not to look. Till next week, at least They sound very helpful and caring too. It's good to have competition and we are lucky to have good suppliers over here, for a change...

I hope they'll enjoy using it. The good thing is with my lot is that if someone doesn't like it, there's plenty of others who can try it instead.

I love to buy them a little treat every month. Holly doesn't go without either.

Jimmy does love to snuggle close but Sunny's not always so keen. But it's big enough that she should be able to have her space still if she wants it. We'll see how it goes.
Yes, the slate perch has toys attached to it. Here's Star on it and playing with the toy that's attached to it.

They are really great. When I ordered the perch, they asked who it was for and have kept in touch with me asking how the birds are enjoying it. They also make custom pieces if there's something you need so, it's always worth asking if there's something you might want that's a bit more special or unique, I guess.

I hope. My younger budgies tend to be a bit more snuggly at night if they don't love it so it'll be used by someone at any rate
