I found these on the internet - do your birds like anything like this? I am thinking of getting one for Sunny Jim.

I would not recommended them for budgies as it has been reported that the budgies' toenails can easily get caught in the material and severely injure the bird.

Hi.. I wasn't aware of the safety issues, but I do feel absolutely certain that my hen Lemony would use it for a nest and almost instantly produce eggs! .

I have also read that these are bad for little birds as they get stuck. Shame as they would look so cute in there!!

My Sammy got a toenail and an entire tail feather stuck through a cushion that was made of a similar material. That cushion is now banned to the bedroom. Luckily Sammy was fine, but it made me look at materials with a new eye.

I have never known any budgies to use them, unless they are trying to nest in one. I'd pass.

I have a snuggle hut- not sure if it's made of the same material (I've never noticed her getting stuck or caught on the fibers), but I'll add that my hen doesn't actually go in it either. Mostly what she does is rip out all the fibers that make up the lining and throw them all over the floor.

I'd be concerned about the budgie possibly ingesting the fibers as that can cause crop impaction.

Thanks for the warning, and I will keep an eye on her, but she's never shown any inclination to eat any of the many, many things she picks up and puts in her mouth. She is like a toddler, she just thinks she needs to taste the entire world and then spit it out on the floor.
