Corn Sock
A bird toy suggestion by Robert Ekstroem

With some simple materials and a few minutes, you can create a toy that will occupy a parrot's mind for hours!

Step 1: Get a washed cotton sock of some sort and some "critter corn" (available at many pet and feed stores).

Step 2: Place an ear of corn inside the sock and tie a knot in the top of the sock.

Step 3: Hang the sock inside the cage or on a playstand. Make sure there is enough "play slack" in the knot and toy so that it is accessible to the bird, but does not pose and entrapment or strangulation hazard.
