Does anyone know if there is anything harmful in toilet paper rolls that would hurt a cockatiel if it chews on them? Where I work we have large, commercial toilet paper dispensers in our public restrooms. They have larger, heavier cardboard tubes than do standard toilet paper rolls; they are about 3 inches in diameter. I'd like to glue some together to make a pyramid toy for Bennie to climb on and in and chew.
Yes it's the glue used for making the toy that I'm concerned with. I use paper towel rolls but with what we know about the dispersion of human fecal matter into the air by flushing, I choose not to risk my birds getting sick from that. Ultimately it's a judgement call.

Thanks; yes I will use school glue to glue them together. To be honest, I had not thought of contamination by aerial fecal "germs"...maybe I should reconsider. The toilet paper is housed in a plastic container with just the end of the paper roll sticking out for use. But, still, it is not air-tight. Maybe I should stick to paper towel rolls.
Thanks for your input!
