2 Blue Budgies, the female is Skittle and the male is Milo.
Do you guys think this will be a good set of toys to get my 2 budgies? They don’t have many toys right now and I’d like to give them something to do when we aren’t around, please let me know if anything seems questionable or dangerous, I think the coconut might be used as a nest so I’ll have to keep an eye on them and also I don’t want them to hurt themselves on the bells because of the part on the inside is sharp sometimes but I could always take the bell off most likely, here’s a picture of the set. If you guys have any toy suggestions I’d love to hear them.

Most of those look great! I would only be concerned about the coconut nest. You don’t want your budgies coming into breeding condition because they will be less friendly and more aggressive with each other. There are many health issues associated with getting “broody” in female budgies, too. Like egg binding, which can be fatal.

But otherwise these look like a variety of really fun toys! Wish I knew where you found them. I think my Quaker would like many of them.

Thanks for the advice!! Like the other person said, it is actually on Amazon, you’ll find the exact one if you search “Bird Toys Bird Parakeet Swing Chewing Hanging Toys Climbing Ladder Coconut Bird Cage Toys Suitable for Cockatiels,Conures,Finches,Budgie,Love Birds” and it’s from the brand “YIXUND”, I also found this set when trying to find an easy way for you to find the other set, here’s a picture, I would only be concerned with the mirror toy and the rope because of the loose threads, but you can find this set by searching the same stuff also.

Hi nice to meet you
Cotton Rope toys are dangerous because birds can chew and swallow them and birds cannot digest them. It can also cause crop infection,the only way to treat crop infection is through surgery which is very risky and dangerous for your birds and there are many more risks about cotton rope toys but there are safe ropes such as coir,hemp,jute,sisal and manila ropes, cotton rope boings are nice but if you notice your bird chewing them remove it i have a cotton rope boing and my birds never chew it but it's better to have natural rope boings.you can use vet tape to wrap your cotton rope boing some bird owners do but like i said it's better to have natural rope boings

Hi May, I’m pretty sure you mean “crop impaction.”

I’m bringing this up because I’ve seen you post this before. Crop impaction means the emptying of the crop is blocked by non food debris that the bird has eaten. Crop infection is a bacterial infection of the crop. Two very different things.

There are many things a parrot could eat bits of, that could cause crop impaction. I’m not sure that cotton rope must be avoided. But I realize that you are very concerned about it.
