Yeah, I guess you're right...
I'll try and find some apple trees that haven't been sprayed, we have some apple trees in our yard but I'm not sure about them.

Made another wooden perch to replace his plastic one,its lovely wood since its so slow growing, this little perch is over 10 years old (10 rings) which is rather surprising but it also means its very hard and difficult for birds to rip apart.

Those are fantastic! You know, if you made a hobby out of making those, I reckon you could sell them

Finished up the last of my perches to replace the plastic ones, tried to make them interesting shapes to make his feet nice and strong, he still has a good 6 normal non weird shaped perches so it gives him a nice variety.

Those honestly are so fantastic, I want to snatch one up!

The shapes you make are gorgeous and great for budgie feet, too!

I cant stop making perches now....made another one for Dicky today and he seems to love it.

I have noticed he spends a lot more time on the uneven perches I make and I think its due to increased grip, when he used to snooze on the plastic perches his feet would slide out making him do the splits and he kept having to move his feet back in. Hes a slouch sleeper, he goes really low and balances on both feet. My last 2 budgies were 1 foot sleepers so this wasn't a problem.

Im popping out to the apple tree again tomorrow to see if there are any interesting shaped branches I can grab, I like the idea of making his entire cage wooden and varied in size.

That sounds great! I can't wait to see the cage outfitted with all of his new "furniture"!

This is Dicky's new sleeping perch, I think he loves the ridges on it as his feet don't slip and he spends ages rubbing his beak and head on it, must be a good scratching area!
