Re: Can they chew it

That could be dangerous for your budgies. I wouldn't use glue on anything my parrots could chew.

Re: Can they chew it

I would stop making their toys with the glue gun period, sounds like an accident/death waiting to happen. If they were to ingest it, it could very easily cause a blockage (that type of glue is not able to break down in their stomachs) and likely kill them. Consider ordering toys without glue, or making toys using another material.

Re: Can they chew it

The glue gun process in itself is not really glue! It is plastic that melts and then hardens!

Re: Can they chew it

From what I am reading, do NOT let your bird chew on the dried plastic!
