Mini square cube ice cube traysWe use the mini-ice cube sized trays instead of regular sized ice cube trays for food freezing because the food freezes more evenly in the shallower-trays.


Water bottle ice cube traysFor the Frozen Food Logs we use water-bottle type ice cube trays - this freeze the food into the perfect size "logs" for treat trays.

We also use these for mounting nests in the top back corner of the cage. These come in a 25 pak or 100 pak - both are very inexpensive and are washable.

About DAISO - we have found an amazing selection of items that work well for birdfood prep and serving (food and water dishes) at DAISO stores in our area. This is a Japanese themed worldwide store chain similar to Dollar Tree stores but their product emphasis is much more on space saving practicality. Most everything in their store in 1.50 or 3.00. We get the the mini chrome racks that hold our Hosptial Cages there, bird food treat cups in their sushi dishes dept, and trays for mini ice-cubes.
