Question How to interpret sudden change in behavior

For years my budgie loved to shred bird kabobs. It was hard to keep up with her. I'd hang a new one, and soon the cage was filled with the shredding. Recently (over the last several months) this behavior completely changed. I hang the bird kabob in the cage and she leaves it completely untouched. I thought maybe there was a smell or something different about this one, so I put in a new one. She doesn't go near it. No interest whatsoever.
My budgie is now about 8 years old. Is this disinterest in shredding something that can be explained by age? Or, might it indicate something is wrong with her?
I'm so curious about this. (It's been a couple years since I've visited this website, but I came back to it today so I could ask this question.)
Look forward to the thoughts of the readers. Thank you.

Is could be as simple as your budgie is bored of playing with that particular toy. Are there other toys in the cage, and other things to chew? Is your bird showing any signs of illness such as being puffed up, sitting on the bottom of the cage, acting lethargic? Have you noticed any other changes in her behaviour?

Just like people, budgies can lose interest in a particular item or activity over time.

There are other types of shredding toys she may enjoy.
Take a look at the information in this thread:

Is she eating, drinking and pooping normally?
