The bird toys should be sturdy and strong, since it will be exposed to the tough beaks and pecking of birds. If the toys have certain parts that come apart, they should be avoided. There are several reputed toy companies, which allow buyers to find out whether the colors used in the bird toys are harmless dyes or not. If there are metal parts in the toys, you need to be careful since these can be dangerous to most birds. The popular bird toys include plastic toys with smooth surfaces, which can be cleaned easily. If you are fastening bird toys to the cages, it’s better to use purpose made clips for the purpose.
Toy Size: The size of the toy should be appropriate for your bird. Small bird toys are not made to withstand the beaks of a larger parrot, who may get hurt by ingesting / swallowing parts of the toy.
Fabrics / Happy Hut / Cage Coverings: Fabric items, such as Happy Huts and cage coverings, can have threads come loose and entangle toes and other body parts. I personally have lost a bird due to strangulation. Happy Huts, or any other fabric-covered sleep tents for birds, are generally quite safe. However, some birds will eat the fuzzy coverings. If fluff is disappearing from your Happy Hut, remove it. This material can cause obstructions and death. Some birds chew holes into the material and get trapped. Any fabric items must be inspected regularly.
* Replace when the fabric gets frayed or torn. I don't recommend Happy Huts for destructive birds. Ropes, Cords, Strings, Threads: Strangulation and entanglement are common, and yet so avoidable. Keep all cords and ropes short, so that they cannot create a noose around the birds neck or get wrapped around their legs or neck. The thinner the rope, the shorter the rope / string needs to be. Fraying rope and cord are also dangerous because your bird may become caught in them, resulting in injury or in countless cases even death. There have been cases of birds separating the strands on braided ropes, inserting their heads, and strangling themselves as a result.
