Am furnishing a cockatiel cage and boy, toys are SOOO expensive now a days! And some of the things? A branch with a washer and some nuts to hold it to the side of the cage, for 15 bucks! Seriously? Or, 3 small pine cones for 2.99?!?! Geez... I buy my bird feed and rabbit food at the feed store for about 50% of the cost of pet store stuff. 1lb of timothy hay at the pet store is like 5 bucks, you can buy a 30lb bale at the feed store for $10. Anyone have a good link to "cheap" bird safe bird toys? It's just so hard to fork over 40 bucks for a few branches and bunch of crepe paper. At that rate, I might as well bunch up tissues and grasses from outside with twine and lop off an apple tree branch.
