hello i am just interest in whether the toys with lots of coloured string (i think they are ment for preening practice) are any good for birds because i herd somewhere that they can be bad for there health because the string can clog there stomach.

String toys safe for birds?
by: The Vet

Some birds will eat this string. I have seen four umbrella cockatoos do this. I have also seen a cockatiel do it. But no other birds in my practice. If you think you bird has eaten any then take him to the vet immediately. If you are not sure, then take the toy away.
