I think DIY projects are great! They are fun, save money and our birds seem to love them. DIY's save you money and are a great way to get your creativity into gear, LOL! However, I should make a few warnings about these projects.

As with any toy, they will need regular checks to make sure they are still safe for your bird. If they are made of rope, it will need regular trimmings, and wood may need ot be replaced over time. Once a toy becomes too worn and is a safety hazard to your bird, take it down and throw it away. With some toys, you cna salvage the peices, but with most, they will need to tossed. For certain toys, like those made of PVC with a rope or vet-wrap covering, simply remove the vet-wrap or rope and replace.

Please note: you know your bird best! You will know which toys will be appropriate or not. Please keep this in mind before making a DIY project. This is for your own bird's safety and you need to be aware of the fact that not all toys will be safe for your bird. Aslo note that some birds may not be comfortable on some toys. That is ok; most birds will not play on a toy they have never seen. Take it slow as to not stress your bird. Also know that some toys your bird may never play with. That is ok, although a disapointment to us! Instead of just letting it sit or tossing it, you can donate it to your local animal shelter for them to use with their birds. Not only does this help the shelter, but also gives a lonely, bored bird something to enjoy!

Remeber to always get Stainless steel! I cannot stress this enough! SS is the safest thing you can get for your bird. Although it is a bit more expensive, other metals can be dangerous to your bird's life and SS is the safest. Also be sure that you have ALL the materials you need before attempting. Our goal with DIY is to save you money, but you cannot really do that unless you have all of your materials. Some materials, though they may seem needless, are manditory to having the right outcome to your toy. Also remember that you should wash materials like PVC before using them. Also wash any materials you think could have chemicals on them.

Just a friendly warning before beginning your DIY's!
