For the whole time I've had Hayley, she has never showed any interest at all in the toys I put in her cage. Until today.
This morning, she grabbed the disco ball bell with her beak and flung it, ringing the bell. She also tried to take off the parts of the shells and other pieces to another toy, and also continuosly rung the bell to that toy for like 5 minutes. I'm so happy! I never thought she was a player.
I read a comment on here a while ago, a suggestion to getting your keet interested in toys. I can't remember who said it, but it was to play with the toys yourself, maybe ring the bell, fiddle with the shells, flick it, and make it look fun. I've been doing that constantly for the past week, whenever I go in the cage to stroke her, change the food or water, or nothing at all, flicking bells to make them ring and talking excitedly. It paid off! For those of you whose keets don't seem like players, try to get them interested in the toys! Its fun to watch, as well as fun for the budgie to play. =)

WooHoo!!!! Good job!

I have always had to show things to Jasper, even had to show him the cuttlebone before he would use it. Now he likes to play with toys with me smile

Now you can go shopping for more toys, LOL!

Last night I covered Tink and Bub's cage and I was just about to go upstairs to bed, when i started hearing this ringing. I went over to the cage, lifted it slowly, and Bubba was dinging away at his (tink was watching him like she always does) bell. I stood there and watched him for a good minute, covered him back up, said goodnight and he was done. That was his play, and I haven't seen it again since. He likes the bell when HE likes the bell.

True, true, true! That just about sums up budgie behavior!! lol hahahahaha ---- they will play when they want, with whatever they want, regardless of (a) how much the toy cost, (b) where you place it, (c) how chewy/cute/keet-ish it is! (But then they will start chomping on something they are NOT allowed to chew, the minute you turn your back) smile
