Crystal's Bird Toys Order

I placed an order with Crystal's Bird Toys for the first time on the weekend and I couldn't be happier with the service and the products that got delivered today. The toys are almost too pretty to give to the birds :)

Here's the box before opening it. Once the wrapping was off, the box used was from photocopier paper ... just to put the size of the box into perspective.

I had to take a picture of some of the pretty birdy stamps on the wrapping paper

And this is the box FULL of toys!

4 Candy Drops - some with spruce and some with balsa wood

4 Neptunes

4 Pine Trees

4 Spin Me Around's

4 Grub Packs

And this is the whole order together.

I'll have to get pictures as Lucy, Jessie and Kylie destroy them :)

Long Weekend at the Trailer

Since Kylie joined our flock after we closed the trailer in 2010, this was her first weekend there. I've made great progress with getting her to step-up onto a perch in preperation for putting her into her trailer cage. However ... I should have introduced the trailer cage earlier than the day we wanted to go there. She finally went in, but it took about an hour. I know what I need to work on. Anyways, Kylie was pretty quiet and didn't eat much on Friday after we got to the trailer, but by Saturday she was back to her normal self. She really seemed to enjoy herself. She got to enjoy seeing lots of animals and lots of people came by to visit with the birds.

Avian Organics Quick Serve

Made some Avian Organics Quick Serve for the birds for breakfast this morning with some AO Cazula mixed in. The birds dug right in and really seemed to enjoy their breakfast!

New ShopVac

Our current Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner has been taking a beating lately, so I talked my husband into getting a ShopVac. I told him it has two purposes ... we can use it in the bird room and we can also take to the trailer to vacuum in the summer ... we are never happy with the small vacuums we get for the trailer. So he went for it. So, we tested it out on Saturday and it works like a charm.

New Toys

The following are examples of toys I made this past weekend. Using a mixture of parts from Wings for Things (an Online Canadian Parrot Toy Store). In the dixie cups, I hid WW pieces of pasta.
