So I just posted another thread about one of my birds getting stuck in this. Ironically, it was not the bird I thought it would've been that got stuck.



Misty actually got her foot caught in the ball. I'm not sure how she did it, but you all know how good they are at getting themselves into trouble. Anyway, I thought, with some encouragement from Miss FaeryBee, I would post a warning in this thread about said accident.

Just be careful. As was said earlier, no toy is 100% safe, and if we supervise our birds with these potentially dangerous toys, they should be fine, and most accidents can be fixed and/or resolved quickly.

Good luck and stay safe, birdies!!!

Hey everybirdie! Sorry if this one has been posted already, it's been awhile since I went through this whole thread. I was looking for new and different toys, and toy making stuff when I came across this:



Found at:
Mother Pluckin' Bird Toys - Home of the ATOM

Kind of obvious what the problem is here. But for those newbies out there, It's the gigantically long strands of cotton hanging down from the top of the ring. A bird could easily get tangled and all kinds of potentially lethal things could happen as a result.


Note from staff: Additionally, ingestion of fibers can cause crop impaction.

Wow! I'm appreciating more and more how careful you need to be with toy selection! I have the basketball hoop thingy.. Oscar loves it! I put a nutriberry in it in the evening and she throws it out and I find it in the morning. She never eats it; it's just a game... I hate to pull this out, but... for safety's sake, I guess I need to. I'll have to find a similar toy. ... any ideas?

Beaded Swing Bad

I bought this beaded swing for my budgies, but my boy got his claw stuck in the hole of one of the beads where it threads through the wire. I had noticed both budgies getting their claws stuck for a second or two while they climbed on it, but today he was unable to get his claw out, and began panicking;. So I immediately grabbed him and got him released. Bad Beaded swing....bad.

This is safe for keets, but not for ****atiels. I heard of a ****atiel that got stuck in these rings! https://www.amazon.com/JW-Pet-Compa...UTF8&qid=1488137452&sr=8-10&keywords=jw+rings
