What’s a skewer filler, exactly? The first time I remember hearing about them was on Avian Avenue when a member there, saroj12, brought the idea up to the vendors there. The idea is that it’s a small part of a toy that is made to be strung up onto a stainless steel skewer. It is a safer option that eliminates things that can pose potential threats to our birds such as loose ropes or chains. It also can be a good alternative for birds that quickly undo or snip through other toys. Aside from that, it’s a fun way to make toys that are easy to make and refill! Here are some examples of skewer fillers that Crystal over at Crystal’s Bird Toys makes:
Apart, they are just small sections of toys made out of simple toy parts. But together:
They transform into a fun toy that can be added to or changed around as needed!
