    Peanut Butter Cups

    All our birds get rope perches and most of them chew the rope off, leaving the attachment (white plastic piece). So I came up with a use for these little things. I clean them, and stuff them with peanut butter, either chunky or regular and then re attach them to the cage. The birds LOVE it and it keeps them occupied trying to lick and beak all the peanut butter out of the little "cups". Just an idea if anyone else has these attachment pieces laying around from former rope perches.

    That sounds pretty cool. I'll have to try it the next time I get any extras.

    I wouldn't give too much PB, or very often. Commercial PB is high in fat & sugar. But a paste of a little PB, whole wheat flour & seed/sulfur free dried fruit, could be squished into there. Good idea for a foraging toy.

    Sorry I should have mentioned that. You can also add a little PB and some seeds, millet, etc. We use organic PB for the birds and it's a treat, only once in a while, but the little cup/attachment things make it fun and keeps them occupied for a long time. We have macaws, so for the big ones I cram some nutra berries or avi cakes in them too. Basically anything squishy that your bird likes you could probably cram in them, lol.
