Sorry if this is posted somewhere else on birdboard, I searched for it and read through the first several results but didn't find what I wanted. I have a wine cork (the real kind, not the plastic-y kind) sitting on my kitchen table, and my p'let keeps flying over there to check it out and try to play with it. I keep taking it away and now I've got it hidden under something because I didn't know if it would be safe for her to chew on, but she seldom likes to play with any toys (despite the fact that I've bought one of just about everything I can find), and the fact that she's interested in something is exciting for me Is it OK to let her chew on it, or is that unhealthy for her?

I always go with better safe than sorry. So I wouldn't allow it. =(
Almonds, in the shell, have a feel of cork to them. I'm sure that they are safe, perhaps she would like to play with them?

I definitely would not use it. Most corks are made from cork oak and it is toxic to birds. Almonds sounds like a good idea or try loofa. I buy loofa and tie it up and my birds love to chew on it.
That was pretty interesting, I never knew that about where cork comes from. Thanks!
