Hey! I just bought these toys for my budgies and I noticed they were nibbling on the threads is that safe? This was made for budgies so I assumed it was safe

Noura, I'm not a toy expert but I would definitely recommend trimming any frayed edges off. A budgie can get its head, feet, or nails caught in it and trimming them may help prevent this.

Here is a thread about toys that also may help you:
Hi Noura and :welcome: to the forums!

The rope ends of that toy definitely aren't safe! I agree that you should trim those ends right away, to prevent accidents or crop impaction. Here's a good link on the dangers of rope and fabric toys:

Meanwhile, be sure to read through the forum's many Budgie Articles and "stickies" (threads "stuck" to the top of each subform for easy reference) to stay up to date on all the best practices for caring for budgies. If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask as we'd love to help! :p

We look forward to seeing you around the forums, and meeting your budgies, too! :D

Cheers! :wave:

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them! ;)
