Re: Looking for advice

I was finally able to find a more detailed list of safe foods. Luckily we keep most of these on hand in our house. I'll enjoy finding what he prefers over the coming weeks. I also ordered him in some better orthopedic perches (currently has bamboo rods), some foraging toys, and some regular toys. His current toy selection is bland. I've read that some peoples birds are intimidated by toys yet they should be rotated regularly to keep a healthy mental state. Should new cage fixtures wait for later down the road?

We are planing to build him a jungle gym stand and a hanging wall gym here soon to accompany his cage top play area. Its amazing the things you can build from pipes and nature. Its also amazing finding out sticks from your yard might not be safe... this is a crazy new world we are entering.
