There's many threads on AA about safety. Look at Safety Avenue it has many different safety tips and advice.

Kids, dogs, cats, alcohol, coffee, junk food, mould, fumes, fish tanks, ferrets, doors, walking/playing on floors, perfumes, chemicals, pest control of various kinds, renovations, furniture, wing clipping, poor or limited diets, cooking and cooking appliances….

As @Destiny said- everything and anything can be dangerous so it would almost be more helpful having a thread about what companion birds need to survive in our homes as healthy as is possible.

There are numerous threads with correct and detailed information on most of the hazards that people would be likely to be looking for information about.

Even whole millet branches can be dangerous. Never just leave them in the cage for your birds all the time (I see a lot of people do that)

Same with millet branch holders (they’re like a cylinder thing and the millet goes inside) I’ve seen budgies climb into them and die

Don’t trust every “bird toy” you see either. I’ve wasted quite a lot of money assuming the toys were safe since they were labeled as bird toys but they were not safe at all

Can you elaborate on that? I leave millet sprays in the cage I want my birds to get used to going into. But if there's a risk, I could use a different incentive.

Millit should only be used as a special treat for foraging, training and taming. Birds will eat as much as they can and can get seriously sick, there crop can get clogged because of the husks and it will make them gain weight and they will probably not want to eat the amount of pellets and veggies they should have
