Question Safe wood

I purchased some Living World Nibblers - natural kiwi wood branches for my rabbits and am wondering if they are safe for my budgies to chew on. I have checked various safe and unsafe wood lists but kiwi wood isn't mentioned on either one. Thank you for your help.

You know what they say...

"if it's not listed, don't risk it!"

Actually, I'm saying that AND you take a risk introducing natural products where there is little on the subject to go by. If it is safe for your rabbits then it might be just as safe for your budgies, BUT still, I look at these items, too, that might be completely fine for small animals, however, just not a good fit for budgies.

In my opinion, it's a risk and I would stick with the list on safe woods and what you know as opposed to what you don't.

Dor has expressed my sentiments on the topic exactly.
I would stick to woods you are positive are safe.
