    Exclamation Please read...

    Before I begin... thanks for looking!

    Well, I'm a spot of financial trouble yet again (sigh) and I'm looking for assistance, but I'm not begging. Oh no, instead, I'd like to encourage all of you who have thought about buying more toys for your birds to consider getting them from me!

    That's right, I make toys, and I make them at incredible discounts. The more you buy, the more discount you get, and you get a discount just for being a Tailfeathers member! I have and can make toys appropriate for finches on up through amazons, so don't hold back --I've got something for you!

    Shipping is generally $4 for the US and outside of the US will be calculated once the final weight is known (but it's generally about $10 or less depending on method!)

    I ship USPS Priority Mail for the US, and Global Priority for other countries, if requested. You may request other shipping methods. You may request special orders. You may request whatever you like, and I'll try to get it to you!

    Right now I can build the following --and pictures will be forthcoming as soon as I get my hands on a cam:

    Cockatiel/Budgie/Finch - Preening Style Toys (My birds love these..)
    Conure/Cockatiel/Budgie/Finch - Wooden Block/Shapes/Beads toys (for chewing)
    Amazons/Conures - JUMBO plastic bead toys.
    Cockatiel/Budgie/Finch/Small Birds - Wooden Beaded Swings (Double wide for small birds...)
    Cockatiel/Budgie/Finch - Beaded ladders
    Cockatiel/Budgie/Finch - Wooden 'Platforms' w/danglybits
    Conure/Cockatiel/Budgie/Small Bird - Birdy 'mobiles'.

    I welcome questions! Please send me a private message or post on this message if you're interested or have questions. Large orders are acceptable! Get yours in fast before I run out of supplies!

    Yeah, I buy alot of toys. And since I buy at petstore they don't come cheap. Some pictures please, and then I'll probably order some stuff. Some slightly larger pionus sized stuff for buddy and some stuff for the cockatiels.

    scootergirl's birdies modeling a toy :



    These are all toys I have made and ready to be sold. They also represent various styles that I make. If you want to order a specific toy, or similar style, just download the image and give me the # of the image, so I know which one you want.

    Okay, here're the parts I have, though at any given time I may be out of something, sorry. I'll let you know though.

    Just as an FYI-Bailey's favorite toy is one Shevie made for her a few months back-it has huge yellow plastic clips on it, and the silly bird delights in sitting on her perch and making the clips snap back and forth. It's a hoot to sit and watch her with it...

    I'd post a picture of her with it, but I've mislaid my digital camera, unfortunately. *lesigh*

    She makes nice toys-I expecially like that she doubleknotted all the beads in-I have birds that love untying knots!

    That was one of my very first attempts at making a bird toy, and while I really didn't like the results, Bailey did. That's really all that matters, neh?

    (((sheve))) I forgot to email you and tell you that I received my box of "goodies" and the birds absolutely love them! They all took the the perches you made and love chewing on the other toys! Thank you so much!

    For anyone who hasn't gotten any of Sheve's toys I HIGHLY recommend them! They are wonderfuly made and my birds (as you can see by Cheeko modeling w/his favorite toy) love them!

    Did you dye those yourself, or did they come that way. If they came that way, do you know what sort of dye was used?

    They come that way from a professional parrot supply store. The paint is food-grade, which makes sense since they're normally something toddlers put in their mouths.

    Theyr'e soft pine blocks, easy to chew. All my supplies are either professionally purchased or dyed at home with food coloring.

    OK thanks. I was 99 percent sure that you would have made certain that those blocks were bird safe, now I am 100 percent sure.

    I hope to be able to place an order by next monday. I had a $800+ unexpected bill pop up during the weekend, and I have to give revenue canada some money before they send a hit squad after me.

    Uh-oh, watch out! They might hit you with creampies. *g* Anyhow, your're welcome.

    Also, a general notice to anyone reading this thread, I do not recommend the straw hats for budgies. Their little claws can get stuck in the threading that holds them together.
