Budgie on Hamster Wheel

Postby Bananaboohoo » Wed Mar 04, 2020 1:52 pm

Is it safe to give my boys a hamster wheel to play on? I'd get the largest size available. :swaying:

Well, I doubt they will use it and, if you put in the cage, it would get covered in poop in no time at all. Plus, I do not know if they are really that safe for birds (they might get a claw or a foot stuck in it). If you are looking for entertainment for them, give them a large piece of dry yucca like this one:

They will chew a hole that will go all the way through in each 'round window'. They LOVE it!
