Like I said on your other thread, I'm no expert when it comes to trees, so hopefully someone with more knowledge will be along soon, but on my screen it looks like that last tree is a young gum tree. If it is, then it is safe for budgies (& the leaves are healthy for them to chew on, just make sure you get the leaves from a healthy tree, with no pesticides or sign of bugs).

This is what I am scared of. I can't make sure that the tree got pesticide or not. But I found a seller of bamboo but it's bloody expensive. But the country I am moving to got so many trees that mostly wasnt sprayed by pesticides. 1 month will not effect them right?

It's definitely better to wait and be sure you're using branches from trees that haven't been sprayed. There are websites that sell natural perches in all different sizes and made from a variety of different bird safe branches. Of course it's best to get the budgies natural perches as soon as possible (they're great for chewing as well as excellent for their feet), but if that's not possible now, it'll be fine to get into it when you move.

Order enough to give your budgies a few options but without over crowding their cage. Just check the measurements of the perches before ordering to make sure they'll fit. Calcium perches are fine.

It’s best to buy natural wood perches specifically made for birds. That way you can assure they’re safe and haven’t been sprayed with pesticides or exposed to mold or toxins.

Default Budgie Perches

HaMo comes from the land of maple trees and I have found they make the best perches, especially Norway Maple. I cut these sticks green and leave them inside for months to dry out. This wood can be cut, shaped, drilled and molded to as many ideas you can come up with. I leave the bark on and just let the budgies have fun chewing it off, and then they eventually chew up the perch.

I know someone will criticize me for allowing budgies to have so much fun and also this way is not instantaneous. I know I need to be stopped in this new world for being creative!!

Hi Ken, you won’t ever get unnecessary criticism here . This following isn’t criticism either... just a note for ALL members and guests.

If you’ve ever received criticism in the past, or even if you’re anticipating it; it would be because while you might know how to do certain things, not all who are reading will have the same ‘common sense’ necessarily. We have many children who not only are members, but non-members who read the posts in this forum as well. As our mission is to provide only info deemed to be Best Practices for budgies for everyone and anyone reading, that is our reason for being quite strict about the information which is posted.

You say “I know someone will criticize me...” If that’s what you thought, then why post it lol.

Most Maple branches are safe, however for those with access to RED MAPLE, it shouldn’t be used for birds. The bark in Red Maple can potentially harbor a fungus which can be toxic to birds if inhaled.

*Regardless of what kind of natural branch one is using, it’s always recommended to first identify the exact species, research, and clean all wood thoroughly before use.
