Talking Autumn Cage Set-up

So... wasn't sure whether to put this in the DIY forum or the housing forum, but I think that it is in the right place here.

Anyway, let's get straight to the point; I want to do an Autumn themed cage set up, and was wondering if you guys have any good ideas? I have a bunch of things already, but more ideas are always welcome!

Also, could someone confirm that, with proper cleansing, pine cones are safe for budgies? Also craft foam?

Thanks in advance,

-Tia

A lot of craft foam is listed as non-toxic, so it might be safe. I would be concerned about them tearing it and possibly choking on a piece. Or non-toxic might not be the same as "digestible" so crop impaction might be an issue. (Yes, I worry a lot... )

Tia,

No, craft foam is not recommended for use with budgies as they may ingest bits of it.

I personally would not use pine cones with my budgies either.
There is a chance you will get "pitch" or pinecone sap.
If you do choose to go ahead and use pinecones you need to be sure they haven't got any mold or mildew on them and bake them in a 250 degree oven for about 30 minutes to dry them.

Thanks for answering my questions, Deb! I don't think I will be using pine cones then, and definitely not craft foam.

Regarding the cage setup: Google Images for autumn fall bird cage setup
When I need ideas, I always check Google Images.

Mexicoandice/Tia that sounds exciting. Being a teacher and and wanting Bubs to be stimulated, in the future I would like to do themed cage set ups. If you do try a different set up would you put a photo up of it? Thanks Nat/Bubs.
