Hello everyone! I was just wondering about a few things concerning shreddable materials.

Because of all the fiber-ingesting and related fatalities that have been happening as of late, I'm over-paranoid about Mallorn again.
Given the fact that she's female, she loves to destroy things.

I always make sure to tape the paper under the grate down so she can't reach it, as she will and used to constantly pull it up to eat it.
Well, last time I forgot, and I realized she's been pulling it up through the grate and shredding it.
However, I don't see hardly any "shreddings"--Is paper digestible?

Also, I got her a new toy today--one of these and she loves it. Although in the description it says the toy is "biodegradable", I don't see anywhere that it says "digestible". What do you think?

Thank you to everyone for your help! ;)

Paper is a by product of wood, and budgies have been chewing wood since the beginning of time. It certainly bring's an uneasy feeling to find chewed paper with no traces of the shred's...I know, I have had it happen many times with no ill effect's to report. From reading I have done on it, it is very rare to have a case of crop or intestinal impaction from paper...but I am certainly no expert, and can only share my own finding's and experience with you. You could send her to me, and I will keep a close eye on the situation for you.....:)
Hehehe, trade you for Soterion ;) ;)

Thank you, Randy, that does reassure me! I agree, that's what I was kinda thinking but wanted to make sure :rolleyes:

Hehehe I'm sorry, this statement is so funny to me.:giggle: God help us if Mallorn ever becomes President! Seriously though, you need not worry about any paper that is free of unnatural dyes or ink.:)

None of my budgies ever chew paper but my girls do have an appetite for destruction with toys and they also love to bicker with each other, especially Betty and Gisele. Whenever one is getting close to the personal space of the other, they'll utter a giggle-like chirp as a warning with beaks opened in attack mode. Budgie girls are so combative and my girls also know karate!:D
I think Mallorn would convert everything back to a monarchy! :laughing:
Glad the paper thing is OK :D
Your girls are so funny! There should be a Karate Girls Club :giggle:
