My vet said they are fin as long as they are natural and disinfected. She said to boil them to kill anything in them or bake them at a low temp for a few hours. I gave 1 to my B&G and she didn't play with it. I think they are to big for my smaller guys but if you have a chewer (cockatoo or Macaw) I think they would hold up good and the vet said they would get good vitamins and minerals from them.
I have alittle advise for you on the antlers -- I am a taxidermist and I would not boil or bake the antlers as this would end up making them alittle brittle - i would just clean them with alcohol.
