I was at an art store and saw this in the kids and crafts section. I think it’s supposed to be a little tote but to me it looks like a perch for tiny birds like budgies or lovebirds. It’s about 10 or 12” across.

Oh that's brilliant - what a perfect size too!

I am not sure. I am worried about anything from commercial poultry products being used with parrots. But it is a good sign that they appeared clean.

Maybe someone else can weigh in?

I can get rubbing alcohol and spray that on it to kill any potential parasites if needed.

Egg cartons, filled with raffia, and covered with a cupcake paper :)
Pipp, that's precious! I can't believe I missed your post before.
Clean egg cartons are fine to use, I use them all the time. They don't need any disinfecting, and if there is any egg remnants in one I throw it away.

I have a goal to make at least 1 toy every day until all my flock has a new one. Their last round of new ones were store bought, and they need some made with love:)
I did the first 4 without taking pics, but I did get pics of the last 2. I figure this way I have to hold myself accountable to get them all made. I'm low on toy supplies so am making do with what I have.

This is for Darwin and has some wood, cupcake holders, unwaxed playing cards, 2 vine butterflies & cardboard on a vegetable tanned leather rope.
