basket weaving with newspaper.looks like fun, except I have more boxes of basket weaving supplies than old newspapers! Wouldn't make sense to buy the Sunday NY Times just to make a basket,,,or would it?
Drill or cut a 'feeding' hole near the bottom, small enough that your bird's head can't get stuck in it. Next poke or drill a hanging hole in the lid. Lastly fill it with hay or paper shred plus seeds and treats throughout!
Hang a bottle upside down with treats in the top and fill with newspaper and shredded paper. Pack loosely with some hanging out to start off newbies and pack it in tighter as they get better at emptying it!
