Donít buy this for middle sized birds

Sponsored Links
Hey,
The other day I bought some toys for Mambo from amazon, I donít remember the seller, but it was an animal company. In the name and description it was saying they were toys for middle sized parrots, such as African greys, amazons, small cockatoos.... well so, first of all, they are not for middle sized birds, they are all broken (and I got them yesterday)theyíre weak, they are for small birds.
Secondly there is one toy which consists in 3 bells with something inside. Mambo was trying to get the thing inside, as most birds would. So well I donít know how he did it (maybe heís just stupid) but he got his beak stuck inside, he started shouting and trying to fly everywhere with the beak stuck until I helped him.

Iím gonna add some pictures cause I donít want any other bird to ďsufferĒ from this... we see that it hurt and mambo has been calm the whole day after that.




See those little red things, thatís what he was trying to take, and he got his WHOLE beak stuck inside the bell..




Jose

I know these pacifier-shaped acrylic thingies as "binkys "

they are in a lot of toys, but I have not seen them inside a bell before.


Poor Mambo!!!
(Good thing you were right there.)

Re: Donít buy this for middle sized birds

Actually, be thankful he got his beak stuck so quickly! There is so much wrong with that toy, where do we even begin? It’s clasp is dangerous! That round ring is extremely dangerous! The chain is not a safe metal!
It looks like someone used office supplies to build it!
Be very sure to give it an appropriate review on Amazon! That toy will kill birds!

I did I did... Iíve rated 1 star and explained everything. I want to make sure they donít buy it. I donít want to bother the seller but if he plays with the ďlifeĒ of parrots is a serious thing.. thanks god I was there cause I donít even know how he was breathing with the beak stuck

Re: Donít buy this for middle sized birds

I have this toy too, and have NOT given it to my GCC's for all the reasons Flboy mentioned. Also, I'm suspicious of the paint on the beads, and I don't know what kind of metal the bells are. I think aluminum, but with everything else going on - NO!
