Toys made from straws!

Postby sillywillybirdy » Wed Mar 15, 2017 6:28 pm

So I have a limited amount of items at my house that are bird safe, and I decided Yukio needed more toys on his playstand! I taped some straws together then attached it to one of the perches. He loves it! You can use birdy safe string if you want :D :sun:
without birds, my life would be sad.

I have seen many toys for small birds made from plastic straws and I must admit that the birds seem to like them well enough, but I, myself have issues when it comes to birds and plastics. I think that while they may not last as long one could use paper straws instead of the plastic ones.

Can you still buy paper straws ? I haven't seen any for years here.
