We decided to get Smokey a playgym for Christmas as he's a bit of a homebody and is not particularly confident out of his cage and we thought it might give him a "Smokey Space" outside of his cage where he'll feel safe/confident. Anyway, on Christmas morning we unwrapped it for him (yes, we wrap our pet's presents!) and set it up... and here's the end result!

Singing at the top of his little voice... he was a bit chuffed with his playgym!

We guessed that the fact that he started singing and preening within 15 minutes was a bit of a sign that he was happy with his present!

Haha classic Smokey that you got yet another gorgeous picture of him with his beak open! He's already won so many awards for the first one :)

 

I love the oiling his tail photos... they look so amazing when they do that.

I bet that playgym will help him build his confidence, what I did with my 2 is I always fed them their goodess on the playgym and had them forage they associated the outside time with fun time then :laughter:

Great idea Elly. I was planning on getting him some new millet sprays (that's his weekly treat, but he hasn't had any for a while)... but from now on, I might make them his weekly playgym treat... will also try to convince him that fruit adn veggies on teh playgym are much more exciting than the ones in his cage (he doesn't show any interest in anything but snow pea sprouts!)... perhaps your suggestion will help turn the tables?!

 

... and yes, i have entered one of the preening pics in the photo comp!
