Foraging toy

Just wanted to share this little foraging toy that I got for my tiels, i know it's for in cage toy but since my tiels spent most of the time out of cage... we had to glued it to a balsa platform because they flipped the toy just to get the seeds out 🤣,
On a side note, at the beginning I used mainly seeds to get them to tryout the toy, they wouldn't get near it!
Now I still put some seeds but mostly are zupreem garden mix

Enjoy and thanks for watching!

Re: Foraging toy

Great idea! Edit: What kind of glue did you use to attach it to the balsa base? I put this on my amazon.ca wishlist so I'd remember it. I don't see a lot of foraging toys that are for smaller birds.

" Elmer's children's glue was used "

Whoa, they make glue for that now? Shoot, I raised 3, and gluing them down woulda been a great help a few times.
