Does or has anyone ever used a plastic slinky as a toy? I'm curious because my parakeets use them to sleep in and get upset when I take them out to clean them. So I thought I'd get one for the gliders and see what they do with it. Reckon it's safe enough? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" />

I would say for supervised play only. I would be concerned about them getting their tails tangled in them somehow.

I have had a plastic slinky hanging from their cage for over 2 years now with no problems at all, from top to bottom, and they love it..plus it looks cool. Not sure how their tails can get tangled, but I guess anything can happen. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

I've left slinkies in some of my cages before!

I didn't really see them playing with them but it was a bigger one and it was always on the floor in the morning <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

They do look cool <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" />

What I do for my birds is lay the slinkies outside on the top of the cage and let them slide through...you can space them out enough so little toes and tails don't get caught. And I guess you could let a portion of it hang down so they'd have a springy part of it to play on. This also works good to keep the slinkies in place. I think I'll be stopping off at the dollar store for a pair for my gliders!

I only use slinkies for tent time so I can make sure he doesn't get himself tangled in one....I hang it from the top of his tent and he climbs up and down it...he's also actually figured out that if he moves his body up and down, he can make the slinky bounce up and down with him on it lol...what a ham! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/roflmao.gif" alt="" />
