They are creative and well balanced! Will you attempt stringing some toys on thin chain? I only ask because many of my flock loves to thrash toys with rope by chewing the upper sections and forcing them to the ground!

I can do that Scott! I just need to find a source for stainless steel chains and wires and such. So they'll probably come in the future.

Re: Would you buy these? (lots of pictures)

They look super cute--- as a prospective buyer, one of the things I do consider is where the toys are stored in relation to other birds. If you are starting a business, that might be something to consider.

They look great though!

Toys are currently stored in my living room which is on a separate floor than the birds but they're around dogs (although the dogs have no access to them)

In the future though I will be hopefully be moving in the basement where I would have more space to make a workshop except it would be in the same room as the birds kind of. It would be split into three rooms. The bird room, work room, and bedrooms. but they're still next to each other if that makes sense. The birds will have no access to them however.

Noodles has a valid point. One thing you may want to do, just to cover your own butt, is to do a full workup on Apollo and Lincoln. I'm not saying just your yearly wellness check, but full check for all the big baddies PBFD/ABV/NCD etc. I can say that even without expecting anything wrong, running those can be nerve wracking waiting for results, but in your situation it can save you a lot more stress later on. You don't want someone later on to try and say that your toys gave their bird a fatal disease because your own birds are in the same place. Just a way to help protect yourself and having the tests run, while not cheap, are cheaper than trying to rent a separate space for your toys and supplies right now.

Lincoln will be getting a full work up soon anyways so I'll be sure to look out for anything.

Re: Would you buy these? (lots of pictures)

There are certain diseases that can be asymptomatic and spread via feather dust (so in a home with central air, it can travel throughout the house). That is why testing really does make sense if you plan to make toys within the same home.
You are making great toys, so to protect yourself and other birds, I would definitely get any birds in your home tested before selling online.

I set up an appointment for Lincoln for hopefully next Friday. Testing is definitely getting done!
