These toys are SO MUCH FUN! I hope they inspire you guys to make some fun foraging toys for your birds and I hope you learned a lot from Joanna’s speech 😊 Feel free to stick around for more by hitting that SUBSCRIBE button and give us a thumbs-up if you did!! XOXO
Please be sure that each and every item you choose in your creative process is SAFE and APPROPRIATE for your bird. Do not choose things that are too small, which could lead to choking or ingestion. Do not choose things that are heavily dyed or painted, which could have strong chemicals or could be ingested. Do not choose things that your birds could get wrapped up in or could wrap around their limbs. Do not choose things that are sharp, which could cut or seriously injure your bird. I think you get the idea. Be smart 😊
Big THANK YOU to Joanna for coming along this journey with me! Check her out!!
