Blue and grey bubs now all grown up

The grey (Sputnik) and blue bubs I raised this year, playing with a foraging toy.

They are adorable. My Fiyero tears up every toy he gets! I can't find a toy stable enough for him.

Tearing up a toy doesn't mean it's an ineffective toy (it does, however, make it an expensive one!). In fact I now love it when my birds tear up a toy because it means they are enjoying playing with it. Sometimes they completely ignore their toys (they've only been like that since they've gotten older.) However, I've now taken to buying toys that I can refill in some way. It may mean I dismantle it and use some of the parts in something else or I can put new bits of wood or paddle pop sticks on it or something.

Hope that helps.

Ellie.

Thanks. I was worried about the paddle pop sticks though because of splinters.

Any untreated wood from a suitable tree (I think there is a list of unpoisonous trees on this site) is ok for your birds. I don't think you need to worry about splinters (someone correct me if I'm wrong). Birds are used to hanging out on trees and don't seem to get splinters.

Very nice video of the baby IRNs , did they all get a home or did you keep them?

Thanks ring neck. The blue bub found a new home while the grey one is still with me, talks now. :)

I have seen shred-able toys for sale that have paddle pop sticks in them for foraging.
