Peanut Butter Ring Toy
The big warning here is do NOT use cardboard tubes from toilet paper!! Parakeets love to chew and any cardboard you put near them is going to be gnawed on. You do NOT want them gnawing on something that has been handled by unclean hands often. Be sure to get cardboard tubes from paper towel rolls and other sources.
Making Parakeet Toys
Take a paper towel tube and cut 1/4" rings from it. Four or five are a good number to work with. Take hemp twine or cotton thread and connect the rings to each other so you form a long chain. Now smear peanut butter onto each ring and roll it in seeds.
Hang in the cage - the parakeets will love gnawing on the wrings, eating the food and climbing through them!
