As every bird owner knows, once a toy part hits the bottom of the cage it becomes a poop target. You salvage the clean pieces and they end up in a bag. I will make new toys, but you never seem to get around to it. This is the toy for you. Just fill the nut cage with toy pieces, nuts, whatever, and itís a new a different toy every time. Some people put a roll of toilet paper in for their bird's shredding pleasure. As an added bonus, there's a metal bell for them to play with too. The bell is designed so the bird cannot pull out the clacker.
