Good day

Im new to the forum, and also new to owning a budgie.

I would like to know, as we have a tree known as a Spekboom in south africa, or Portulacaria afra which is succulent tree.. Can one use those barks as a perch, or would it be unsafe?

Thanks for reading

Hi, Welcome to Talk Budgies!

The purpose of this forum is to promote the BEST PRACTICES in the care of budgies for their optimal Health and Well-Being.

That tree is not listed in the Safe Wood for Budgies so I would not use it. When in doubt - leave it out.

I could be wrong with ages, but is it not considered that budgies younger than 5 months, have stripes across the top of their head. Tyese stripes then disappear as they get older?
