Play gym!

I bought a play gym the other day for the budgies. I needed something that would fit on the top of the bookshelf and (hopefully) prevent the budgies from chewing it up.

The budgies enjoy flying back and forth between the gym and their cage. I replaced the green globbie thing with more stuff for the budgies to chew. They weren’t using the swing, so I used the hooks to hang up some toys. And (for now) the budgies aren’t chewing on my bookcase…

  1. I had one by Penn-Plax similar to that one for Allen when he was younger… but when his flight feathers grew back he wouldn’t ever sit on it anymore… and he doesn’t chew on wood. So I took it apart and kept the more useful looking pieces 😛

  2. It’s pretty boring as is. I can see why Allen lost interest.

    Putting toys on it helped. Plus the fact that it’s on a high shelf, and the budgies love to be up that high : ).

    • I agree about it being boring… but also because Allen’s a single budgie, he’s really bonded with me, and rather sit on my head or shoulder than some other perch.
