Hi we are new to conure parenthood and have made a cozy home for Liliana. After some research we are unsure if the branches of the tree used in her cage is safe for her to live with. The branches are from a glossy privet tree. Does anyone have any experience with this tree?

Privet hedge is toxic, but I have not heard about glossy privet. Personally, I would not use it.

You are welcome. That sounds much safer.

Two sites that cover safe and unsafe wood:


(The first one is my go-to when I want to make a perch because it lists the woods instead of everything in a couple paragraphs, but both are good resources)

Welcome to the Avenue! :welave: I personally wouldn’t use any wood that could be toxic. Better to be safe then sorry. :)
