Nowadays, I use a ceramic dog bowl. It's deep and big enough for two birds to sit in and it's also heavy so I don't have to worry about them jumping on it and that it's going to flip on them. I sprinkle some pellets, nutriberries, and seeds onto the bottom of the bowl. I wrap some up in coffee filters.
I toss in some hard toys. As you can see I have various beads, plastic and wood.
And some shredding toys along with some pistachio shells (not salted of course) and curly straws. Those are colored lollipop sticks by the way. My birds like to peel it apart.
I cut up some coffee filters and threw them into the mix

Apollo was not sharing!
It is a great inexpensive way to keep my birds entertained. They really do like it when I wrap up the treats, so I like to do that ahead of time because that can be the most time consuming.
In a couple of days, I'll write about sprouting for birds and I'll be making them a mash of various ingredients.
