Homes wanted for unwanted toys. Donations to AGPG
« on: March 28, 2013, 02:42:20 PM »

I like many parrot owners go through the websites and catalogues thinking "Oh Boycie will love that". Boycie doesn't. I am about to declutter his toy collection. I would LOVE them to go to birds who enjoy them. I have cardboard tubes, parrot pencils and the things that look like lolly sticks. All items offered have been stored in a box and in plastic bags.
Would anyone be interested and perhaps donate to the AGPG?
I apologise in advance if I am not allowed to post for sale posts x

What a good idea...I will bear this in mind and keep any toys my girls don't like...though missie has come on leaps and bounds since poppy arrived and is not scared of any new toys I've put in her cage :) x

Thats a lovely idea, and very thoughtful.  However, AGPC aren't doing any rescues at the moment, this is on hold and under review - so, donations aren't necessary.  You could of course make a donation to a favourite charity?

We could even set up a bit of a "swop shop" for toys that our birds dont like - because as you say, sometimes we think wow - he/she will love that, only to fnd, they don't! but another bird might like it, and yours might like something else?

just a  thought

Glad you think its a good idea Jacky - hope more people do - as it could be a good way of getting rid of the never played with toys, and at the same time, getting new ones to try ....lets see what people think of the idea

Jules, the carboard tubes are a bit like the rolls that Sellotape or brown parcel tapes come on. What I will try to do is post up a photo of them for you.

I think a swap shop is a great idea as I think we all have some toys we hope our parrots will grow into or suddenly love?? Err no!! If Boycie is anything like your birds he has VERY strong ideas about toys that he likes and doesn't. An example of this is parrot pencils. I lost count of how many pencils and pens I had to pluck from him. Saw birdie pencils and thought Yipee. I even put them in the pen holder on my desk. Did Boycie like the pencils???? Answers on a postcard please..

I will post up the photos by midweek. Jules you can certainly have the lolly sticks x

I have a lot of acrylic foraging toys that were complete waste of money as Chewy prefers chewable foraging toy so I'm trying to get rid of them, they are literally unused but without tags

A parrot that lives with you is not a pet or a companion. Neither is the parrot a friend.  Your parrot becomes your family. A child that never grows up :)
