We usually spend a small fortune on the right toys for our sun conure, Arcus.
But toys are an important part of keeping caged birds healthy and sane.
Recently, however, we've tried hanging cardboard boxes in his cage.
He loves them!
He tears them to pieces, literally, bit by bit, making the happiest of chipping sounds as he destroys them, leaving a thick layer of cardboard confetti on his cage lining.
He enjoys boxes far more than any toy we usually buy.
This is good news for our budget!
