Actually, she took to it amazingly quickly! (Usually it's: higher cost of toy = low interest; 2 cent wooden clothespin = coolest toy ever!!)I was sure she'd be afraid of it, but no... We're still showing it to her outside the cage, and will be putting in inside her cage later this week.

I think I read somewhere, perhaps in some advice from Aminah, that it's not a good idea to get edible perches made out of wood, or the flavored chewing wood blocks because it will confuse the birds into thinking that wood is food, and they may begin to eat other wooden stuff instead of just chewing it and that would not be health for them. Fortunately here we don't have does perches so I don't have any dilemma smile (I think I would get it haha)

i dont think that perch is actually made out of wood though. I think it's just made to look like wood... which the birds can tell because the texture is different. You should always offer your birds something wooden to chew on but they know instinctively not to swallow wood.

This is a really interesting issue, in my opinion. I suppose if you see a pile of sawdust underneath a wooden chew-toy, then you know your budgies "get" the distinction! But if you also see that they're not eating as much food, then you may have a problem, obviously...

My guess (and this is totally just an opinion) is that eating a little bit of wood would probably not hurt them, because it's essentially cellulose (like many grains & veggies) and would presumably just pass through their digestive system...

Sometimes if I just move something that is ignored, suddenly it is discovered. ::)
