    Are the dowels they sell at craft/home improvement stores safe?

    I would like to use them for play gyms and various other goodies but i am unsure. Does anyone know if they are pressure treated?

    If you go into your hardware shop and ask for untreated pine (or other safe woods) you should be able to get some that are fine. =)

    only untreated woods and in different sizes- untreated, in case they chew they. I have 4 different widths in my tiels cage. plus natural wood perches, like manzanita or apple tree branches-- be careful they are untreated trees. sweeties mom.
