Default Safe budgie toys

So Jay really is the opposite of Jimmy and really enjoys playing with toys.

He's played and explored with all the toys I've put in his cage but he seems to like to gnaw on things and I want to give him some safe toys that will let him do this. Currently he has bells and things.

There was a rope perch in his cage which he started to gnaw on so that came straight out.

I want to give him something he'll enjoy and that is safe for him and as I have no trust in what could be safe for him, I don't want to chance anything.

food dyed wood pieces on chains/ropes are safe for him. and as long as it's small enough wood pieces, he'll love chewing on them. Also, mine seem to LOVE chewing their ladders up.

I know this sounds too easy... But I have a found that my little girl who always seems to chew in everything but what I want her to, loves to gnaw off the bark of small branches (budgie safe trees). She just has to get it off and it seems to satisfy her need to work at something. I also have given her toilet paper rolls (with out glue) and pre cut the ends so they are frayed in tiny strips. I hope that makes sense? And she will go after that now and then. Ohh and I suspect that Jimmy may learn that that toys are fun soon enough from being around Jay.

Maybe Jay will teach Jimmy how to have fun with all those toys. I've been getting a lot of toy parts from mysafebirdstore.com/ and making my own. My birds seem to prefer chewing on kabobs, finger traps, and things made from palm leaves.

He does have one of those wood pieces on a chain but he's only played with the bell so far. I'll have a rearrange so he can get to the wood. He's been playing with his plastic keys as well today, my mum told me.

I get what you mean about the toilet roll. I'll give that a go.
Jimmy only has about 20-ish days to wait. I was thinking that he could be a good influence- both of them to one another really. Jay can still be a little shy at times.

Thanks, I'll have a look. I'm happy to make things for the boys as well so that could be fun!

My two have so far only shown mild, fleeting interest in the kabob I got them, but hopefully they'll get more interested in it in time. But they've really enjoyed pecking at, and shredding, the mineral stone I got them just the other day:-) Success!:-))

Both mine have started with their calcium and cuttlebone now. Neither touched them at first but at least once a day do they go to them now.
As with most things with budgies, they just take a little time.

One of the things all my birds love to chew is the little wicker wreaths you can buy at craft stores for very little money.



These are favorites as well:

I also have some coloured and plain wooden lollipop sticks which a colleague who teaches art and crafts gave me. But they're not yet joined together, or attached to anything so I've not put them in the cage yet. I'm trying to think of a safe way to do that! I also hope the coloured ones are non-toxic; it didn't say either way on the packet.
