What To Use For A Stand For A Play Tree
Posted 26 May 2009 - 07:17 PM
I thought about use a bucket and concrete (im thinking it will be really heavy), or an umbrella stand (cant find one). I wanted to know what everyone used for theirs and what the pros and cons are.

It became kind of like a hobby. We hunted around for an old table/dresser/cabinet with storage underneath and my husband bolted them down to one of these. In this picture I found this old dresser at a garage sale for $5 - took it home and put a coat of black
furniture paint on it and it looks just like new... Plus I have drawers underneath to store stuff in...
My husband also put a lip around the edge so that if they sat on the rail backward and pooped, it wouldn't hit our carpet. Good idea hubby!! Cause it worked!

Awww, thanks. Oliver is a total sweetheart too. Does not even know how to bite as near as I can tell. He was surrendered to the SPCA if you can believe it. He's not much for play, but loves to cuddle.

Before attaching branches, Google something like:..."plants trees toxic to parrots". I found Oak in the TOXIC LIST!

On a larger tree I made, I filled the pot about half full of sand first, then the large rocks.
My bird likes to crawl aound on the rocks too, so it works well.
I put the whole thing on a roll around cart, and put plastic under that. I can sit a bowl of water on the cart, and T-Bird comes down and bathes whenever he wants.
So the clay pot and rocks worked well for me.
He is usually there for 5 hours or so a day!
Then I attached grape vines, which I got from along our creek where nothing toxic is ever sprayed, and made additional branches for him to chew and crawl on.
All of this is great fun, but he still plucks. arggghhh
