I remember some time ago some people saying they use rat wheels with their birds... hope I didn't dream that up. I was just wondering what kind you use?
I have seen this one 'Giant Rolly Wheel for Rats by Savic' www.petsathome.com/ This gets around the problem of painted plastic wire as I could attach it to the side of the cage and not have the stand. Has anyone tired these or similar things for budgies?? any advice would be appreciated.
I'm thinking it would do for exercise and also bordom buster.
PS found via Small pet/ Degu sorry putting a direct link to the product failed!
Hi Billie, my sherbert used to have a rats wheel in an attempt to try and keep his weight down seeing as he didnt fly. He actually enjoyed it after the initial avoiding when it first went in his cage lol.
I used them in my aviaries for years (worn out now & haven't got one atm) and all the birds loved it! We'd be entertained as we had a table next to the aviary and when one would run on the inside we'd see the "budgie waddle" and omg it was hillarious!
