New Food

Went shopping today .... yah, shopping therapy is goooooooooooooood!

I got them some new pellets (ZuPreem Classic Avian Maintenance Natural Diet yadda yadda yadda - big sack, 2.5 pounds! for $15.59), LM Oats and Groats (they smell SO yummy!) and KayTee Natural Spray Millet - yum! THEN I got some wooden bits, some popsicle sticks, and other toy making stuff.

Shopping therapy that is not a waste of money is soo gratifying

Re: New Food

I made a sort of ladder from cording and popsicle sticks, but I think I am going to re-make it. Drilling holes would work much better than how I did it lol.

Re: New Food

I have palnned to make toys by myself but I think I will have a problem on choosing safely coloured material...

Yesterday I bought Phoebus some new toys, a spiral for birds with bell and some rings on it, an other wooden toy for parrots also with a bell and various shapes , and from a baby toystore a small plastic hellicopter which today doesn't look at all like a hellicopter, she loved it, wouldn't leave it from her feet yesterday, and an other toy made of cloth that makes noise when you shake it, which she doesn't like and attacks it....

I'm sure your fids will love them Indigo, have fun all of you!

Re: New Food

I made a bunch of toys for Pepsi and she was scared to death of my toys. Hopefully you have more talent and better luck than myself.

Re: New Food

I made scary toys on purpose to try to make Misty not feel to safe and stop her from laying eggs
