Which is like saying I’m amazed you feed your bird seeds because they can choke on the husk or wood bird toys because they can choke on slivers – there is absolutely nothing wrong with this Julie – birds are smarter than that – we’ve been doing this for 30 years with multiple species and it not that we’re “lucky” that a bird in our care never choked on a fortune cookie wrapper.
Ironically the video below got posted to our Facebook page on 5/3/2017 almost 4 years later with the following comment:
“So the wrapping plastic isn’t an issue? I was going to try what you did with the treat stick and let them open the package themselves but the plastic freaks me out! Is it a risk for them to chew/shred plastic? I have two Pineapple Conures.”
