    Thanks for the wonderful idea and information!

  2. I think the SS skewer in the middle is one of ours. We offer them in 3 different lengths. You have done really well in using all three of these. They really make life easier for food and toys.!! If you need any replacement balls, just let me know.

    Thanks for all you do for the fids.!!

      Thanks for the compliment and the offer of replacement balls Michelle. But the acrylic balls are pretty tough, just look cracked but only on the inside. I’ve had them for years. I think the ones you have at Mother Pluckin’ Bird Toys are a curved and mine are straight. I have found that if I string wood on a curved stainless boing that I have my Meyers is more interested in chewing than if it is on a straight one. So I would think your design is a little better.

      • Actually we make both. the SS Skewers are straight. The SS Corkscrews are curved. And yes I agree when using the corkscrews, the birds are more interested in chewing the wood rather than straight. My guys are the same way.

  3. Love the idea of filling up the overalls with foraging stuff!! Great!!

    Love the photos, especially the first one showcasing your filled skewers! I really love stainless steel skewers as well. All of mine come from Mother Pluckin’ Bird Toys and look like the middle skewer, but mine has pointed ends and are perfect for stabbing through produce (though the corkscrew ones are blunted, probably because they are mainly marketed for their wood parts). I’m thinking, since yours is blunted at the end, they may have come from Expandable Habitats.

    Our Meyer’s is an extremely picky eater so I’ve never tried butternut squash with him. Heck, I’ve never had it since that isn’t a common ingredient in Japanese food. Can you feed that raw or do you need to cook it first?
