I am sharing a few photos of Jeeves & Wilson’s cage set up.
I am asking for opinions/ advice about the sisal rope and jute garden twine we have used.
Only after reading about the rope issues on this forum I wanted to check if what we have is safe?
The nature of the material is that it has a frayed/ rough appearance. I have noticed the boys occassionally nibble on it but only for a few seconds at a time.
Happy for other input too.
I have considered perhaps another swing?
Will put in a mineral block/ bell as we only have a cuttlebone.
Thanks in advance.

I agree with what the other have suggested about colorful toys and bells! There are some great cheap shops to get them from in AUS (I get mine shipped from there to NZ) and Blingy has a bunch of resources too! As for the rope, I use sisal and have not had any problems. Just always keep an eye out for fraying and if the pieces they are biting off should be falling to the floor of the cage - that shows they are just playing rather than trying to digest).
Thanks for the suggestions. I have taken them on board and added some coloured wooden toys as well as a bell housed in ball. They haven’t investigated them yet, but I didn’t expect they would. I also added another swing and mineral block, these two they have ‘tried out’. Truth be known the cage has had far too many changes / additions etc in the 2 weeks since they came into the family. It will do them good to be leave the cage alone - at least for a month when I plan to swap a few toys. I am pleased the rope is safe enough- I actually changed the swings rope to smooth steel chains, as I was concerned they may twist themselves around the thin twine when they climb it. I left the other rope as is and will continue to monitor it.
