Happy huts are desirable to bird parents because they’re soft and cuddly and seem to offer our birds comfort. Indeed, birds generally like them a lot and spend quite a bit of time nestled inside. They often mouth or chew the material, sometimes tearing holes in the fabric. Although it may seem that these products are a great way to provide fun, enrichment, and a sense of safety and comfort, great danger lurks here. There are significant risks posed by these products, including gastrointestinal foreign bodies, entrapment in the material or attachments, and reproductive issues related to perception of the hut as a nest.
Instead reach for something natural if you are interested in providing a place for you parrots to cuddle up. Grass or hay balls make a great choice. But please remember they may still perceive it to be a nest.
