    Is cardboard dangerous?

    I've been thinking of making a little tent/hangout for my birdies out of cardboard I have around the house. Is it dangerous for them to chew on?

    Nah not really. Mine chew on some all the time, have been forever. May be the cause of their sillyness sometimes though Just as they're not intentionally eating it as part of their main diet, I've seen no problem with it.

    My vet told me she gave her amazon a box a week to chew on, as long as the box is just plain old cardboard with nothing on it, they are safe... well that is unless the birds decide to eat it! Most just chew them up but some also will eat it so watch them at first just to make sure they only are chewing them and not eating them.
