I feel like I should never go to bird stores anymore because I end up buying at least one of every toy in stock, if not way more stuff. Once, I was shopping online for some replacement food bowls, and I ended up with my java tree! Having no regrets, lol
Also Albie is so spoiled and so loved, thanks! :)

Green cheeked conure
We found a wonderful place near us that only has bird things. We nearly purchased a cage that was five foot tall and 3 foot wide. We ended up with enough treats for 6 conures! Lastly we were left we these words of wisdom from the owner..
β€œYou will see people with one bird, and maybe two birds, sometimes 3, and then you end up with 17”

Yeah same here, any trip to get pellets or Nutraberries always includes some toys. Salty has his favorite types, so I try to always have some of them stocked up and on hand. New owners better believe that parrots are expensive! Even at $50 per visit/month that's still $600 a year, and most trips I drop a lot more than that.

If we didn't spend it on albie, it'd only get wasted on rubbish so we're happy to spend what ever it takes to keep him happy

RIP Gandalf and Big Bird, you are missed.
One reason I purchase most of my bird supplies online! Periodically visit a large specialty store and inflict mortal damage to credit card! 🀣
