So I bought a popsicle stick toy for my birds a little over a week ago. And they destroyed it in 4 days. Lol. So I decided instead of just going to get another toy I'll go get more popsicle sticks and color them myself. I hear you're supposed to use food coloring to color the wood. Any particular kinds I should avoid? Or are they all safe for birds?
All food colouring that you'd find in the supermarket for cakes etc should be fine for birds I personally wouldnt consider using anything else. The only thing is that if it gets wet your birdies might change colours :P haha.
I would only use natural colouring. That's if you need to use any colouring at all.
If you read the blurb on some of the so called safe food colouring in food products you may not be able to find out what it is, only a number? And that's a worry.
