Things for Wings order!

This was actually a combined order. What happened was that I purchased a part of the haul during side-walk sale and asked Danita, owner of T4W to hold it for me for a little bit so I can add to my order later on and save on shipping. Well, that’s what I did and a HUGE box of goodies arrived yesterday!

I had to pick my parcel up at the post office where I met a cool clerk. What granted her the “cool” status? Well, she saw that on the box it says parrot toys and told me she also has parrots.

I asked her ” What kind ?” expecting the usual answer I get- a green one. Much to my surprise, she told me she has a small flock of cockatiels and she has a huuge aviary for them. Luckily, I was the only one at the post office, so we started talking about parrots and caring for them and it all ended with me opening my box there…at the post office!Danita has super power packing skills, so I had to carry a box with parrot toys hanging from it to my car.

She loved the toys and I gave her one of Danita’s business cards, so she can order from there, also.

And now the pics!!!

Passion flower shred and chew is a great toy and much larger than I thought it would be. I also got 10 of pine foot toys that are stuffed with colored beads. I should have ordered more as they are going crazy over them.

Lino’s toys 🙂 He’s like a termite and destroys all his toys, even if made out of harder woods VERY quickly! I really like the pine toy, it’s made on SS rods and has beads between pine blocks.

My favorite toy- a custom toy for Lino! It has pine, yucca, cottonwood, willow, hardwood beads and vine balls tied together with various ropes; seagrass, leather, hemp and coco rope. It’s very tightly packed and it will keep him busy!

Ringo is a more into shredding than destroying wood, so I got her those kind of toys…filled with paper, seagrass, balsa 🙂 and they are in girly pink and purple colors!!!

And the last is also a toy for Ringo- a busy basket 🙂 a shredders dream

I love all the toys I got and it will keep them very happy for awhile 🙂

New Crystal’s Bird Toys order

Few days ago I received a wonderful parcel from Crystal’s Bird Toys. However, I just got around to post about it 🙂

Everything looks amazing. So, here are the pics 🙂

I ordered a Make it Snappy and Make it Snippy. One is made out of balsa and the other one is out of pine.

And a large HOOT bag. I don’t think my picture shows how many toys were in the hoot bag!! One thing that completely blew my mind was that Crystal color cordinated all the toys; blue ones for Lino and pink and purple ones for Ringo. She, even included two of each toy, so both of them get their own. That’s BEYOND amazing customer service.

Ringo NEVER plays with store bought toys, no matter how many custom toys I buy, she’ll only play with some foot toys. She will, however, play with toys I make her, especially if she sees me making them. I hung the Make it Snippy on their playground and she flew to it, started destroying it and didn’t move from it for an hour!!! I’m very pleased to see her destroying a toy with so much gusto!

Thank you, Crystal!!!

A CBT order

I’ve received my first Crystal’s Bird Toys order! I’m super excited about it. All of the toys look amazing, super colorful and I think both birdies will have an awesome time playing with them.

I’ve got a foot toy hoot bag. I’m not sure what size the bag was, though, but it came loaded with foot toys. By the amount of them, I’d say it was the large hoot bag.

Next on the list was the Make it Snappy! This is a really nice, big, tightly strung toy. It has a lot of chewing possibilities and I love it!! It ended up a lot bigger than I imagined to be, what is always a plus.

The Scavenge is a perfect foraging toy. It has an almond hidden on the bottom of the toy and another one hidden inside.  It comes stuffed with crinkled paper so you can hide additional treats, like I did.

Small Squeak Squiggle

I also got two Fred’s Foragers toys that I didn’t take pictures of. All in all, I’m very pleased with my order and I think birdies will be, too.

Parrot Treasure has arrived!

A treasure indeed!

I’ve known of Parrot Treasure for awhile, but something was always more important to order. Finally, 10 days or so ago I took the plunge and ordered some foraging toys for my two feathered creatures.

I’ve ordered some hanging and some foot toys. I wasn’t expecting this toys to be so big. It was a pleasant surprise when I opened the box this morning.

Their toys originally come prefilled with pine nuts, but I asked for plain toys, so I could filled them with goodies. My favorite is the parrot toy, it’s so cute. Holes are big enough to stuff them with nuts, seeds, small veggie/ fruit pieces or anything else you want.

Pictured are Little pops, Yum Yums and Nutlettos. I didn’t take a picture of all of them, pile was simply too big!  I was amazed by how big of a wood pile all of the foot toys made.

This toys are wonderful, not  only are they aesthetically pleasing, but also they are very cost effective, their price really isn’t bad at all! They provide wonderful chew and foraging opportunities, one of these toys is a lot of wood to chew. I also like that everything is strung on a leather lace, so there are no chains, no trap/choke/etc hazard, just 100% safe toy.

I think both of them will really enjoy their new toys, so much to chew and destroy!

A little gift

New Avian Organics order!

Few days ago, I’ve received my Avian Organics order. I just love how wonderful, healthy and nutritious their products are! Both of my parrots adore everything I ever got from this store and I just love  how easy it is to feed a healthy, balanced and organic diet, which they will actually eat without any fuss what so ever!!

So, here’s what I’ve ordered:

I wanted to try their new Apple Orchard Spice bread for a long time, so this order was the perfect opportunity to do just that. I’ve already baked it (I have pic I have to upload, so I’ll do that during the next couple of days) and my entire kitchen smelled like apples and cinnamon! Yuuuum!!! I have so many ideas for parrot recipes, so I bought apple and blueberry fruit powder for that. Can’t wait to do some cooking with them!

Cazuela is a staple around here, both of them love it and I use it as a foraging food. New things I wanted to try was the Pear’ngs and Pura Vida. Pear’ngs are a wonderful blend of dried pears, coconut, sesame seeds, amaranth, chia seeds, bee pollen and hemphearts. I topped it over their fresh foods this morning and they loved it, even though that wasn’t a surprise at all, as they gobble down everything I give them from Avian Organics.

Jungle Trails is a wonderful nut mix, made of almonds, dried chilies, puffed kamut, coconut, dried bananas and goji berries. When you open the bag, smell of the mix is amazing! Every time I order I pick a different nut mix for them to try out and Jungle Trails is their favorite by far! Mango Ginger Minis are a pellet alternative, perfectly sized for different types of foraging toys.

All of this products, along with some locally bought organic seeds, make their dry mix. I used to mix everything together in one large container, but I won’t be doing that any more, because keeping all the products separate makes it a lot easier for me to fill their toys with different items every time. I believe they get a much more diverse diet!
