Would it be safe to replace the split rings on my budgie’s toys with stainless steel split or o rings intended for jewelry making? Like the ones from craft supply stores. I see there are some on Etsy that specifically state they’re for making bird toys but I’d rather not wait for shipping. I just want to make sure there’s no additional coating on them or anything.
One thing I’ve noticed with the jewellery making spilt rings, is that they are not very strong at all. The ones I have I am able to open with my fingers so a budgie will easily be able to open it with a beak and then possibly get hurt. Also, I’m not sure that the jewellery making spilt rings are the good quality/grade SS so you’d need to check that.
