Be careful when buying ladders! It has to be appropriate for the size of the cage. Lenny kept injuring his foot on one that was almost as long as the width of his old cage. I'm not sure what happened exactly, but I'm guessing his toenail got caught between the bottom of the ladder and the cage floor because that's where I found the most blood. Lenny's fine - the vet didn't see anything wrong, his toe is still intact and the whole time he acted like it never happened. I kept the ladder (outside of the cage, of course!) because I knew I'd find a bigger cage for Lenny, which I did. The ladder hasn't caused any issues whatsoever.

This is a very helpful thread.
The toy I had is really fun and safe to play with.
But if manufactured wrong or something happened, it can be toxic
Google Image of the Toy
I used to have it.....
But I chucked it since some of the glue was showing that I had no idea of. ( I had it for a while, and they loved it but I just noticed the sticky glue showing. The glue holds the two hoops together)

I could've sworn when I bought it it was fine..
So be careful with the glue, and supervise them too as with the cocofibers

Unhappy One to add - found bub hanging

Went into the birdroom after hubby asked me check it out as he had been in there cleaning. I checked in all of the cages and dropped everything when I saw a bub hanging in the nursery cage. On trying to free her I found her foot was trapped and even after I released her I saw she was still having trouble walking.

This was the offender:


What has happened is as they have chewed the stick - it split and when she has climbed on it her toes became trapped between both parts. I snapped off the piece that was split but when I saw she wasn't walking properly, I picked her up and found it had gone through the skin.

Also from hanging and trying to free herself - she has damaged her right eye and also her beak.

Eye


Beak


After bringing her in and nursing her she is still having trouble weight bearing on it.

Be careful with those long millet holders with holes in them - budgies and other birds have gotten their heads caught in the holes

Poor dear. I hope her injury is not serious. Thanks for posting the picture of that holder.

Dont use this type of bell with toys.
Toes can easily get caught.

Hi everyone, this is not a toy but a cage warning: https://www.breedingbirdcages.com/pro...-bird-cage.htm

My newly acquired budgie Petie got his wing hooked where the peak and rounded part of the cage meet on the inside, and broke a blood feather. He lost A LOT of blood and had to be rushed to the vet. I take broken blood feather off of Sky at least once a molt, but I have never seen a bird loose that much blood and live Thank goodness my vet is close to home and moves so quickly and got the bleeding to stop in time!

Hairbands are foot toys that budgies can't have. It can get them tangled up and can suffocate them. It is a big killer. Although in this picture it is a cockatiel, imagine wat it would be like for a budgie (lethal).



Charlie models it for you. Can I just let you know that Charlie had this removed right after he had it put on, it is not jewellery and that Charlie was not harmed in any way by doing this. I also must state Charlie took this picture under strict supervision and after taking the photo the hairband was taken off.
