Post Is this perch tent safe for budgies?

Hi,
I want to know if this perch tent safe to use?Here's the link: https://www.amazon.com/Super-Bird-Cr...s-Peekaboo-4-5 Inch/dp/B000OB2I82/ref=pd_rhf_dp_s_cp_29?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID= ARAGGMCW79WC4YV30R91

Sorry if I did any mistake as I don't know if there're any rules for sharing a simple link about a product that we've question about. If not what kind of tents/nest hut are safe for budgies or what should I look for when buying one for my budgies or where should I buy from?
As I'm asking suggestions of huts/nests if you don't understand what I mean by that then here's the link so you can see what I'm asking about: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01C71U7TS?psc=1

Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks

Budgies perch to sleep and do not need huts or tents of any kind.

Snuggle Huts/Tents, etc. are not recommended as budgies can easily get their toenails caught in the material and severely injure themselves.
Additionally, if the budgie picks at the fabric and ingest the fibers it can lead to crop impaction.

Another thing to remember is that anything a female budgie can hide in she may decide to use as a nesting site.

Although many pet stores and on-line pet suppliers sell the snuggle huts, tents, etc. they are very dangerous for your bird.

Thanks for sharing. I thought about this only as the fall season is almost here in TX & if this would be good for them to snuggle and keep them warm. Even I do cover their cage with the fabric sheet which is put as double then I put a warm plush throw blanket to cover their cage, I cover 3 sides of their cage and on front for less than half of their cage height so the night light can go through their fabric cover for bottom of their cage area. (P.s. they don't/never chew on fabric sheet/cover so don't worry). Anyways thanks for your advice.
