    I have been looking for ages for a really long rope perch....they only seemed to have 19 -- 22 " long.

    I was looking around pets@home getting some dog chews and went past the rat assessories when i spotted a 'rat bridge' looks just like a perch with screw lock ends and its 48" long and it cost £9.99, the bird ones are just 19" and cost £6.99.

    i often find things suitable for the birds in the rodent/hamster section and they are always much cheaper than in the bird section.

    Yes, me too. Norm loves the dried corn on the cobs. If you buy them for birds they are so dear, but Pets at Home do packs of them for rabbits and they are much cheaper. It just doesn't seem fair!

    Hi, re toys we go around the charity shops looking for children's toys, most are non toxic or just plain old wood we have found loads of simple toys which the birds will spend hours and hours destroying, better spend a pound than ten I say , they also love the musical toys with big buttons as long as it makes a noise there happy, costs us a fortune in ear plugs looool
