Lead found in Parrot toy and cause parrots death.

This article was written in response to the parrot death by the parrot toy in the first picture. The article is good at addressing the dangers in toys mostly made in China. http://www.birdtricks.com/blog/unsafe-b ... void-them/

I tell you, I have come to distrust anything sold commercially for birds!

That why i make so much of my own toys....well its cheaper too and i can make what they like. There are a couple sites where i can buy online in Canada, and they are parrot safe concious. They also sell a lot of safe supplies for toy making. I pm manufacturers all the time and if they cant give me clear cut answers I dont buy.

I look at toys in stores and then make my own versions a lot.

To me the "made in China" means that my pets will suffer with it. Waggen Train treats just about killed my Jasmine. The vet told me not to feed or use anything from China for my pets.

Great article, thank you for this. It makes me sad. People buy their birds toys with love, and a tragedy like this happens. :*(

I agree with the mention of making your own bird toys, it would also be a good idea to make toys with safe, organic, free-trade items and sell on Etsy!
