Default A reminder for us all!//GRAPHIC PHOTOS

I just wanted to give all of you this reminder - never buy any toys with anything the budgies feet can tangle in!
Like rope with frilly ends, or straw toys. These are just examples please use your head when buying or making toys for your birds!

Yes this is my bird, I found it like this this morning, because I was too stupid and thought they could manage that toy - well this one could not! And she had to die for my stupidity!

When I found her she was alive, but her foot had died from lack of fluids, and her leg was broken at the hip joint, and several other places. She had tried to gnaw her own foot off to get free! I had to euthanize her, she was in so much pain.

Please don't do this to your birds! Please!

Share this with anyone who has birds, so we can make sure no more birds have to die this way!

Rose I am so sorry this happened to your budgie.... I don't have these toys for my budgie but if anyone else on here has them it is good thing to share your information with everyone else so this doesn't happen to them... But don't be to hard on yourself you weren't to know that the toys weren't safe for your budgie... I hope you will in time get another budgie to love you have a lot of love to give....Plus there are a lot of budgies that need a loving home.... Try not to be to hard on yourself....

Thanks Lyn, i do have many budgies as I am a breeder. This toy was in the baby cage - just plain STUPID to use a toy like that! I have no excuse for myself!

So I lost a promising and lovely young bird just weaned for a $1 toy. I feel like crying every time I look at the picture of her.

I am so very sorry for what you have been through. But how brave and good of you to post about it, to warn others. You clearly are a very caring bird owner with a conscience who has suffered a terrible shock. There are people out there who are deliberately cruel to creatures, and clearly you are not one of them so try and forgive yourself. Think of the future, and the good, kind and loving home you will be able to offer other budgies. Take care.x

Like every member and visitor to this forum I am truly sorry for your loss, as you know some pet stores sell items that are really not suitable for our pets, sadly in this case it resulted in the death of a gorgeous budgie.
Like Susan I must applaud you for making this thread, if there is just one budgie saved from injury or death after reading your post then your birds untimely death has not been in vain, please don't be upset, you did nothing wrong Rose.
Pete

Aww you are the best comforters in the world! Thank you for your kind replies, and I really hope someone who has these kind of toys will see my post and remove them. That is all that matters!

Rose,

I'm so very sorry for the loss of your little budgie.
I'm moving your thread over to the "Product Review" section of the forum as that is the most appropriate place for it.

Fly high, soar free sweet baby budgie; rest peacefully now sweet girl.
