Hello all,

So I've been learning how to make a lot of different things using crochet ie potted plants. My hooligans love getting into my plants so I've placed them where they can't reach them. I'm wondering if I use jute cord to make different objects and toys, are there any possible concerns?

I also want to see if average food coloring dyes you pick up at stores are safe or if I need to special order something for it.

Picture is a flower made of yarn. I want to make things like this using jute cord.

Thanks!

Using Jute should be fine, but just make sure that they can't get their nails caught in it. I use food colouring from the store on all my toys, but I add it into a little 70% isopropyl alcohol. That helps them to dry a lot faster - just make sure to let them completely dry out before offering them to your birds:)

Please be really careful when using yarn - as you mentioned, their nails can get caught and I would also worry about whether the dye they use on it is safe for birds. I would be afraid to risk it:(

I've found that my cockatiel just likes to pick them up and throw them. I'm thinking about making a mobile or something similar.
