Do you have some soft wood sticks of some kind that Willie can chew on that are not from China?
Unfortunately, we don’t have what you are asking for. Over the past 20 years, the majority of the wood mills have closed in the US and we have fewer options available to us.
In the past, I used to have 100’s of different wood shapes available, hearts, bears, bunnies, stars, and so on. Now. Only round bead shapes and squares like ABC blocks, tongue depressors, popsicle sticks can be ordered and most of that comes from China.
Commercial bird toys on the markets have limited options for wood parts. Bird toys sold in the USA today may state they are made in the USA, but the “parts” may be from China (wood, plastic, paper, fabric) or India (metal links, chain). Things “assembled” from parts purchased overseas can be labeled “Made in the USA”.
It is not the world we used to live in, but we have to make do with what we can provide and not leave our birds without. Until the USA starts to realize that we need products produced here, we have to live with what we have. Please realize that the majority of bird toys, etc that are imported from overseas are checked by the USDA for safety and are safe for our birds.
We only purchase our bird toys and supplies from well-known and knowledgable companies that we trust fully to offer products our birds can use and enjoy safely.
You can try to go to your local lumber yard and ask for pine lathe or other thinner strips of wood and cut them up for your bird. But you also may need to ask where they come from as they may or may not also come from China.
However, here is something that might be of interest. Lolly Sticks. They are paper sticks made in the USA and very popular with birds. they are soft, dissolve in water, available in tinted (by us with made in the USA bird-safe colors) or plain white.
