The Potential Dangers of Fabric And Rope Toys And Accessories
« on: November 29, 2015, 12:42:33 PM »

I follow Birdtricks.com on twitter (BirdTricks.com@birdtricks) and saw this the other day and thought i'd share as we all most probably have toys with these kinda materials, and to be honest although I always watch Georgie with new toys when she starts playing with them for any potential issues, I'd never actually thought of this...

I wont cut and paste the article but you can read it on the below link

Hi Jon, I've heard about the dangers of these and other toys made from fabrics and rope. Like the posts say whilst being vigilant, its easy to become over protective, and our birds could end up with nothing to do or play with :(

Even if you make your own but from cotton you have to make sure there are no ends fraying that birds might swallow. Another safety measure would be to weigh your birds, so any significant weight loss can be reported to your vet, and investigated x
