(Mattie Returning From Her “Morning Constitutional”)

Even on a day off, the morning routine doesn’t waver. I still have to get everyone up and get them fed. But at least I don’t have to do it at 5:30 in the morning!

I take out the Parrot’s breakfast I dished up the night before…

…warm up their bean mix you see in the zip-lock baggie, and put it in the bowls on their play gyms. Then I get Parker, Pepper and Nyla uncovered and up.

Parker is taken to the trash can for his morning”Bomb’s Away” which he does without hesitation. Nyla’s next and Pepper? Well, Pepper prefers target practice:

Once I got to the Store, I found a lot of items that could be used for my birds:

These whiffle balls can be stuffed with “stuff” and hung in their cages.

They have to try and get the “Stuff” out:

Straws are great bendable items to stick in stuff, tie into knots or stuff into something…like a whiffle ball.

For the “wood gourmet birds”….

These can be tied onto things, stuffed into things…You’re only limited by your imagination…

And as you can see, there’s a little something for everyone. I’ll continue my “Dollar Store” review in the next post.

Thanks for stopping by!
