[ this is from an artical not mine. however i had personalized the toxic list ]

There are a few plants and other materials that might be around your home that are poisonous to your budgie. Some of these you obviously wouldnít let your budgie chew on, others you might not strike you as obviously dangerous.



Weíll start with a few common materials around the home and then finish with a long list of plants. Iíve tried to find as many dangers as possible, but I canít promise that I havenít missed anything out. Iíll add more poisons as I find out about them though.

Some of the materials listed are dangerous if your budgie so much as touches them, while most will have to be eaten to have and real effects. Iím going to be very obvious and say, if you think your budgie has ingested something poisonous then take him to see a vet immediately.

Lead: is poisonous to budgies. Since itís poisonous to people as well, you donít find so much of it around the house nowadays though. Thereís no lead in pencils, and lead isnít in paint all that often either.

You can still find lead in some things though, like rust covering paint, old pewter, foil from champagne bottles, lead batteries and apparently in tiffany lamps.

Copper, Zinc & Brass: have some really bad effects on your budgie. Though your budgie probably wonít be able to chew through a brass padlock if you use one to lock his cage, there are stories of budgies getting poisoned from chewing at bits of copper pipe and the such.

Glues & Adhesives: can be toxic if your budgie eats them. Adhesives used on pet related products will be non-toxic, like the glue used on sandpaper sheets for your budgieís cage. Other glues may be harmful.
