Default Dangers of Snuggle huts, tents, fabric housing, rope perches and tasseled toys


Dangers of Snuggle huts, tents, fabric housing, rope perches and tasseled toys

Snuggle huts, tents, and fabric inside your budgies' cages are dangerous and should be removed.
The birds' toenails can easily get caught in the fabric leading to severe injuries and even death.
Budgies do not need houses, tents or hidey hole type toys. Budgies sleep on perches and adding any of the items listed will only cause problems for you and your birds.
Ingestion of fabric fibers can lead to crop impaction.

Similarly, Rope Toys and Tasseled Toys prevent a real danger.
