Re: Weaning

I have never heard of keeping toys away from a bird that is being weaned. In my opinion I think that is silly. I would give her lots of choices in toys. My breeders advice was always to have different types at the same time. Something plastic, something wooden, shreddable & shiny/noisy. I think that the shower curtain idea is good but makes for alot of extra work. I am a germaphobe and would worry about trying to keep it germ free. I would ask around for newspapers. Perhaps a coffee shop or store that keeps newspapers around would give you the left overs. I think that it makes life alot easier to just throw it away. Good luck on your baby, I love eckies!
