Our birds like cotton balls and hair from our combs. They have taken raffia when I had it to put out for them. Tks for the feather pillow idea linrose.

lonediver,

Thanks but no thanks. I'm a rather picky eater to begin with.

I think I'll stick to bird's nest pasta (angle hair pasta dried in a little 'nest').

Sage? Are you more adventuresome than me?

I thought dryer lint was a no-no? Gets too soggy and makes the little guys cold, even if there aren't residues in it.

Good point, Calliandra, and no, I'm not an adventurous eater either, dapjwy, and I gotta know what it is before I eat it!

You are so very right Calliandra. Thank you ever so much for mentioning that dryer lint was a no-no.

Cornell discourages the use of it-

Dryer lint from synthetic fibers becomes crumbly after it's rained on and dries. Some laundry detergents and fabric softeners may leave harmful residues. We donít recommend offering dryer lint.
