Default Coconuts,coconuts...

Hi
I m making a coconut toy for cutie, as I cracked the coconut I was hoping for coconut water to come out but it didn't so I guess it wasn't fresh but can I still give the shell to cutie after removing all the coconut? Also she likes to nimble everything and I was wondering if the coconut strand could cause a problem if she swallowed it?
Every advice is appreciated
Thank u

Since Cutie is a female, you must be careful because she can use the potential coconut toy to nest. They can do so and become broody with just half a coconut toy as well as the whole coconut with a small entrance.

I agree with aluz -- the coconut shell may well make Cutie broody.

To answer your question, if Cutie eats fresh coconut it won't hurt her.

I'll definitely make sure I observe her behaviour while I keep the coconut toy in but she is the only budgie I have. However I think the coconut is not fresh but if I remove the coconut from within and just give her the shell to play with would it be fine and if she swallows the fibres in the shell of this (not fresh coconut) would be fine?
Thank u

I believe that the coconut water is absorbed as the nut ripens. Green, very young, coconuts have a lot of water and it is absorbed as it grows the coconut meat inside. If all the water is used it could just mean the coconut has absorbed it all to make the white coconut flesh. I don't think that automatically means the coconut is not good.

If you plan to clean the coconut out of the shell and let her have the shell as a toy, any coconut bits that may happen to remain in the shell will not hurt her.
