I'm aware that he doesn't need it to sleep in. I've had budgies before and currently have WillO'Wisp who doesn't have a hut. The hut is from my first budgie and hasn't been used since. The hut is only in there for know because he was hanging out in it at petsmart. I put it in there temporarily for him hoping it would help him feel more comfortable. I'm aware that he could chew it or a nail could get caught, but due to it being the weekend he's being supervised if one were to happen it would be removed immediately. Thanks for the warning though.
