Default Where Do I put these in the cage?

Hello everyone. So a few days ago I went out to my local pet store and bought Jack and Jennifer a new toy and a branch looking perch. (Sorry if it's not called that. I really don't know what they are called as it said nothing on the package.)

Anyways I hung the branch inside the cage at the very top but they were both scared of it for some reasons and it made them stop going on to the very top swing like perch. So I took it out and don't know where the appropriate place to put it is. Secondly this budgie toy. I put it on one of the perches though again not sure if it's the right place for it.

I was wondering if someone can help me determine where the toy and the perch have to be placed? Thanks all.

Since your budgies are afraid of the branch perch, you can add it on your budgies' play area when having out of cage time. You can also have it close by while not inside of the cage, so that they get used to it and realize the object is not there to harm them.
The location of the toy bird looks fine to me.

For overall hygiene and health reasons, it would be best if you got food and water containers that attach on the cage's bars and to place them away from a perch, because if it's directly underneath a perch and the containers don't have a top on, then you will have the same problem.
This is mainly to prevent poop from getting inside the food/water.

I have birds over the years who don't like a new toy or perch. What I have done is to place the item outside the cage, near it, so they get used to it. Then as Aluz puts it so well, they realize it won't hurt them I can put inside the cage.

I tend to move stuff around in the cage when I do the weekly deep clean, my birds are used to this and it helps me introduce new stuff easier.
good luck x

Thanks so much! Both to you and Aluz! I absolutely love this friendly community!

You're so right, I have learnt so much over the years on this forum and still am. It's just brilliant you never know when you need to ask a question and sometimes reassurance too. Xx

aluz and shaz128blue have offered you excellent advice.

In addition, I would suggest you keep a close eye on how they respond to the toy that looks like a bird.
You may want to put it outside the cage on a play area and limit the time your budgies spend with it.
Many budgies will become obsessed with the parakeet toy and end up spending their time trying to feed an mate with it. Some even become aggressive if you approach them when they are with the toy.
