Default Tallulah playing on a hamster wheel :)

I'd been wondering for awhile if a budgie could play on one of these until the other day when someone on one of the fb groups posted a pic of one of her budgies on one...I had to get one.

Here's my Tallulah Belle (always the first to investigate new toys!) playing on it

Wow, love this idea! I'm going to steal it too

This is the second idea I've stolen in the past week, so I'm on a roll.

Be careful with these wheels, it is easy for a budgie to get a toe or leg caught in the openings while it is spinning and that could cause an injury. Consider lining them with something like moleskin or felt to block the openings so a leg cannot slip through.

That's adorable.

However, for safety, I'd recommend using a solid plastic hamster wheel rather than the type with the holes in it.

Thanks Cody. The spacing of the mesh is not too wide that their feet would fit through and wide enough that they won't snag a toe - and it's not like they don't actually run on it (well, at least not yet lol) That said, they are literally right in front of me when I let them play on it, never left unsupervised

Thanks Faery Bee...I appreciate your concern and actually considered that one at the pet shop but the wheel was too small and not as light (i.e.I didn't think they would be able to spin it) I don't leave it in the cage (some people do) and they only get to use it when I am able to watch them
