    Cotton or sisal

    This is what I have so far. Its just the base. Planning on adding eye screws to the corners then putting rope through and then adding three more pieces of wood further up to attach toys to.

    Perch potatoes

    Hi, After installing a new UV light for my parrotlets they were very active for quite a few days, more so than before, but now they've gone back to being perch potatoes. I leave their cage door open all day but they just sit together on their perch doing nothing. They come down to eat and...

    App called Seek

    Cotton or sisal

Im going to use willow for the main part of it and either sisal or chain to hang it or maybe a combination of both. Will be easier to decide what im doing once I get started. I was making tree stands for...

    Work with birds?

    Hi, Does anyone on here have a job that involves working with birds? Ive been a Chef for the past 5 years. I love it but its 12+ hour shifts, no breaks and a lot of stress. It became my whole life and without it I initially felt lost but I do not feel happy living that way anymore. I love my...

    Cotton or sisal

    I might use some chain as well as the rope. I have an image in my head of what I want to make I just need to make it 😂 I was tempted to just cover my living room in sisal ropes from one side of the room to the other but perhaps that might be excessive... However my birds have already taken over...

    Cotton or sisal

    I live in quite an old building so that may be an issue. I was thinking about maybe getting a wall bracket to hang it from instead of drilling into the roof just incase 🤔 i havent quite decided what I am building although I have a rough idea. Was going to screw some willow branches together to...

    Cotton or sisal

    Thank you Michael, I have heard quite a few horror stories about birds getting caught up in cotton ropes so thought sisal would probably be the way to go

    Cotton or sisal

    Hi, I was going to make another playstand for my birds that I can hang from the ceiling and I was just wondering if I would be better using cotton or sisal to hang it? 🤔 Thanks 😊

    Hi everyone Dull day here too. Haven't used my car in a while so it was a bit annoying to find out that the brakes were seized but it is sorted now. My dad always tells me to leave it with the handbrake off but I always worry it might roll away :pancarta: Had a call from the parrot charity...

    Parrotlets... Underrated?

    The uv light I got has made a massive difference. Theyre a lot more active and keeping me on my toes! I have bongo drums in my living room and they have become obsessed with them. Walking on them, hanging upsides down from them, hiding behind them. They're a couple of little nutters
