well..I made a phone book shredding toy (cut the book in 1/2) and neither bird is interested. My braided newspaper is a success and I've made a small boing out of newspaper too. They are loving it!

I knew of a lady whose bird was poisoned from ink when he tore up a magazine. I would worry about the ink, I know that phone books have red dye in them and yellow dye too, these are toxic to humans in enough quantity, just read the warnings on the dye you let the kids use for easter eggs. Some of the black inks are poison too, and birds are delicate creatures, maybe if the bird just shreds them and does not accidently ingest any it would be safe. I am just offering my opinion here and if granny50 has used them with no harm, they are obviously safe although I would never chance it.

I believe it's the shiny pages you have to worry about... put the paper in water, if the ink bleeds it is water soluble and -probably- vegetable dye (and probably safe). I have given Clover newspaper and 3-hole lined paper and she's not dead yet!

I am so excited! We got a larger cage for JR & Toosey with some toys. He's been on the ladder and he's playing with the ball with a bell in it. It's the little things in life that we appreciate so much more! They still aren't hand tame, but at least JR doesn't charge the bars of the cage anymore! lol

I put empty paper towel rolls with one paper towel left on it, the last one that sticks to it in the cage and they jump on it look inside, roll it around, it's so funny. I find everyday items seem to work just as well as exspensive toys.

Hi,

Be careful of papertowel rolls, they have glue on them that hold that last piece of paper to the cardboard.

In case you weren't aware.
