I thought it would be nice if we had one thread where everyone could share some of their favorite online sites. Please be cognizant of the links you post - NO BREEDER OR BREEDER FRIENDLY sites. Check the sites links before posting also - if they link to breeders those won't be allowed either. Management will delete any sites not deemed acceptable at their discretion w/out explanation, so please do not repost a site if it's been removed. THANKS!

Two is one of my favorite sites:

Bird Safe Store

This is not a thread for retailers to join and advertise their site/products. Advertisement on this board is limited to those organizations with 501(c) status only and must be approved by the Administrators. This is a sharing of information among members here from their personal experience in dealing with reputable companies that do NOT support the bird trade industry.

The two cheapest sites that I have found for bird toys and toy parts are

Busy Beaks

California Bird Nerds

The people at busy beaks are extremely helpful and their prices are dirt cheap. Bird nerds has an extensive collection of toy parts with dollar deals and lots of sale items.

Thanks for the links...my Timneh is afraid of everything except parrot pacifiers so I am always looking for them...it is just not the same looking at cool bird toys with no 2 to share them with...

I just showed my husband the toys so he is getting the hint that while I am being good..I am starting to get the bug to start looking for a 2 that wants to adopt me!

I also sell toys but all money from the sale of my toys goes to Avian Disease Research at the University of Guelph. I even cover the cost of materials. My toys do not last very long though. I use only natural materials. No glue, no plastic. I use wood, hemp, veggi-tanned leather, seagrass rope, paper rope, etc. I make them and I can't even afford to keep my birds supplied with them. LOL Janet bought a bunch and I think they lasted for 5 minutes. LOL I'm going to take some pictures this weekend if anyone is interested in having a look.

EM,

Do you know how long it usually takes Smart Bird Toys to send their stuff? I ordered 10 days ago but haven't heard from them. Hmmm. Curious.

Their sites says that orders are shipped between 3-5 days, excluding weekends. My experience has been that it is usually closer to the 5th day. If you ordered on the 5th, which was a Wednesday, your order should have been sent out no later than the 12th. They ship UPS ground. Except for order confirmations I have never received a shipping notice from them. They are in GA, so if you don't get your order on Monday, I would call them. There is only one time that I had a problem with an order and when I called, they said it was because a few of the things I ordered weren't in stock, but they expecting any day so they were holding shipment until those items arrived. The day I called, the had just received the items and got the order out that day. BUT, to my pleasant surprise, about 2 weeks later I got another package from them. Because of the delay, they doubled my 25% discount coupon that I had from the newsletter and sent me another 25% of my order in more stuff that I order on a regular basis.

Carlos, what kind of toys does your bird enjoy? Each bird is an individual. What one bird may enjoy, another will ignore. Why don't you go into the New Member's Introduction forum, introduce yourself and tell us a little about your bird. smile

Here's another new site (Bev sent it to me). It's quite impressive!
