Newspaper?

Can I screw up some newspaper and let Rio play with it in her cage? Or is it toxic to birds?
Also what about normal a4 paper?

Many thanks

I screw up a ball of newspaper occasionally for my birdies to have in their cages & rip up.

I use newspaper too. Or I will get unprinted newspaper from Amazon. You'll have to Google to find the cheapest.
 
When we used to use newspaper on the bottom of the cages, we'd also screw up a couple of pages for them to rip up. I remember our vet once told us of another client with a hyacinth who used to hang up entire phone books in the cage :lol:

LOL MJGB - Chico gets whole phone books too. I collect a stack of old ones each year from the Co-op. He's just been ripping up a new one - taking a well deserved rest right now. :lol: Like with everything else, including newspapers, phone books are getting smaller. :mad:

I have tried phone books but no one took any notice. A while ago I did read that newspaper was not good for them but it is mainly what I use for the cages, Dusky always goes down and wrecks it within 5 minutes. Do we still have phone books?
