Exclamation If these are in your bird's cage, get them out!

Hi guys! Long time no see.
Anyhow, I've come with a story to tell. Just another story to prove that you must give your birds the right bells! Just to clearify before hand, no one died but it very well could have ended that way :[
I was out of the room and I notice how unusual things were? A lot of banging around for someone to be paying. Any how, i went in there and Doll was acting very frantic attacking his mirror bell. I knew this wasnt normal so i ran over and sure enough! His beak had been stuck, wedged into the cheaply made bell.


I didn't know what to do, so a held him so he would stop flying around possibly hurting his neck or jaws. It was hopelessly jammed inside the metal so i tried calming him down to get a closer look. Im not even sure how he managed to do it. I called out for my dad so we found get him to the vet. I didn't want to hurt him by pulling on his head but i very gently rocked the bell until it came off. He was free and i wad just so glad. We had not been hurt thank god but his beak had been slightly damaged, nothing major though. I put his down to make sure he hadnt give into shock or anything and he seems to be ffine <: he was playing just a minute ago. I gave him lots of kisses and love and he is alright!

I took the bell off and modified the miror so there is not place for toes or beaks to get stuck :c poor boy


Replace your cheap bells with good safe ones! If they rust, the ringer inside can be removed or it has a strange top like this, GET IT OUT! better safe than sorry!

I'm glad to hear your budgie was not badly injured. I'm sure that must have been extremely frightening for both him and you!

Thanks for posting the information to let the members know about the potential danger.

I've moved your thread over to the "Product Review" section of our forum.

I am glad your budgie wasn't hurt bad. I don't use those bells. I get the best product toys for my bird from my parrot shop.... I get stainless steel bells but they are nothing like what you have in the picture...

If you want to buy safe toys for your budgie hear is a link that you can browse they are all safe toys for our birds.... You can buy safe bells at this link I have given you...I know I buy toys from here I don't buy them from the pet stores.....
