You can definitely get a bigger bang for your buck by making toys.
You can use all the things illusive mentioned that you might already have around the house and you can go to some place like Walmart and get plain 100% cotton butchers string or a ball of UNTREATED hemp string to string beads n buttons n bottle caps etc. You can get a good size bag of multi color pony beads that will make lots of toys. A package of the cat balls are really cheap too, comes in a pack of 8 or something like that. Use some for floor toys and some to string along with beads and pieces of colored drinking straws. They like pieces of straws for foot toys too.
My guys love those plastic capsules you get from gumball machines with the rinky dink little toy inside? put a few beads in so it rattles...you can also take a piece of the cotton string..maybe 4-5"..put a few beads at each end..and close the middle of the string in the cap of the capsule. Crazy but that is one their favorite toys! Levi uses em for bombs. He carries them in his beak or feet and drops them on us as he flying overhead. lol Brat!
Can also be hung on string with beads n straws.Never leave bare string of any length. They can get tangled and strangle or break a leg
Sometimes you can find a few small bird toys at Walmart for 87 cents. They go fast when they get them in tho, so ya have to be lucky. lol
Most loove toys with the liberty bells. Don't use the round jingle bells because they can get toes caught in them. If i see a bigger bird toy on sale that has lots of pieces, like multiple bells, or pieces i think my guys will like I'll get it and take it apart to make other toys out of it.
Once they start playing with toys you'll get to know what kinds they like best. Like mine like bells and fringes on their toys.
It will also help once you know whether you have male or female so you'll know if you can make shreddy type toys or not.
You can make toys even out of paper or cup cake liners...but probably not a good idea for females.
Heck mine like little wads of paper they can toss around.
I find the best greens for bathing purposes are romaine or green leaf lettuce and parsley.
The romaine or leaf lettuce is better than the iceberg nutrition wise. Still not exactly highly nutritious but not bad, and great for bathing. It's something your family might get anyway for salads n sandwiches. You can clip it to the side of the cage with a clothes pin(even try on the outside of cage at first so they get used to seeing it) or lay it on the cage floor or on a plate or shallow dish.
Kale is probably one of my top picks nutrition wise for them and they love it. It doesn't do well for baths tho because it's weird..it almost repels water. Beet greens are another of my top picks for eating. And as long as we're talking veggies...it's important to keep trying orange ones too. I'd go with sweet potatoes and carrots. Vit A is crucial.
So for a bath try the nice dripping wet lettuce n parsley and give other types of containers for a bath tub a try too. Sometimes it takes finding just the right one THEY think is just right..to get them to take the plunge. I must have tried 4 or 5 different things, starting with a bathtub shaped bird bath with a mirror at the bottom. THAT was useless, they didn't use it and it was too small for them to stretch their wings to get wet anyway. Waste of money..don't go there.
(makes a good toy box in their cage for foot toys tho)
Mine like a plain plastic sandwich container and it HAS to have lettuce or parsley in it.
Picky? Nah.. not much huh? LOL
Love to see some pics of your birds so we can maybe tell if male or female and age of Pineapple.
k, i'm rambling. can u tell i'm bored?
