I'm sorry if this has been asked before. Just wanting to know if those bird kabobs are safe for our feathered friends?

Thanks
Nancy

Do you mean the shreddable ones?
Those are made of yucca, which is a natural plant fiber and can be digested if ingested.

I had the same concerns when I got one for my little girl but she loves it and I looked up the material and yes, it is safe

Great because I put one in their cage and boy did it get shredded. Then I worried about it. Good to know they are ok. Thanks

Kabobs get a lot of our treat dollars as they have so many good qualities for our birds. Jo Ann

Just wondering how often you all give these? My birds shred them in no time. We are currently taking a break from them. Just curious - thanks. Funny, my linnie wouldn't touch it though

I only tend to replace mine every couple months, though my hen tears through one in just a few days. They're not awfully expensive but I don't have the money to replace them as often as she destroys them! Last time I bought one of these, which is more expensive but seems to be taking her longer to tear apart.

I noticed several weeks ago after Izzy had been shredding his kabob that his poops became very watery. I thought he had ingested it and it was not agreeing with him so I took it out. I had forgotten about it and gave it to him yesterday morning. He had been fine in the morning, but early afternoon his poop was watery and he appeared to be in distress. He was holding out his wings, sitting very still, not his usual perky self. I immediately removed the kabob, and kept a very close eye on him. He did eat some seeds and millet and preened himself, but it was only in the evening that I saw a turnaround. His poops solidified and he played and chirped. This morning he is his old happy self. I put the bird kabob in the garbage!
