I have an Avian Avenue Forum member, Renae, to thank for giving me the idea to make my own version of a toy she shared in a forum post. Renae posted this picture of a toy she made using links, bagels and rolled newspaper.
I know, terrific idea isn’t it? I saw this and immediately went to my parts bins. I had all the parts to make a toy similar to this one.
I also made a video showing how I put mine together with parts from www.MakeYourOwnBirdToys.com. I especially like this toy idea because it is affordable and makes up quick with just a few parts.
I originally made this toy with the Large Heart and Star Links. I needed to order more of those parts from MakeYourOwnBirdToys.com but they were out of stock. I did find a substitute part that I actually like much better, Geo Links . I made a new video to show you how to make this same toy with Geo Links. And, as you will see in the video, it is a toy that keeps my birds actively shredding away.
