    I can spend ten bucks on a stupid parrot toy that the lil bugger does not even look at....but put an empty water bottle (cut in half) on his stand and it will keep him busy for two weeks...he "attacks" when I go near him when he is inside the friggin thing..cracks me up parrotfort1.jpg parrotfort2.jpg parrotfort3.jpg

    Nice Gamma. That beak looks sharp.

    Talk about free fun, here is a picture of the box my flex liner came in. I made it into a "battle bot" for the kids and they beat the snot of the box until it fell apart. They would walk around bumping into things while the plastic bats flailed away. It was hilarious.
    Yes, I did take a turn in it as they whacked away with sticks.

    He gets pistachio nuts? At least they are California ones...I'd freak if you fed him the real things from abroad.

    My 41yo amazon parrot laid and egg:eek: in the bottom of her cage yesterday. No wonder she's been extra mean to me. I call her "el tigre."

    The only reason that bugger has got pistachio nuts is because I made a mistake and bought the salt less ones...<> and no one was eating them. I don't think he likes them either.:confused:


    Your parrot has every right to be pi$$ed off....41 and laying "blanks." :( I would be pi$$ed off too. ;lol

    Hehheh . . . my cats are the same way Gamma . . . buy them toys, cat condo and even make them a nice cat tree and what do they prefer to play with . . . an empty Coke Zero carton that they climb in and out of . . . give them the carton and a cap from a soda bottle or milk jug or a roll of gauze tape and they'll play for hours.

    All the cats I ever owned (I think the stinkers actually owned me) liked those little furry mice that look real. Thing is, once they managed to detach the tails, game over, mice were soundly ignored. It was always a worrisome question as to where the tails went. Never found them, even in the litter box.
    But yeah, best toys were stuff I dropped, or piece of packaging.
