Eucalyptus Bark Chew

Submitted by: Andrew

Author’s Note: I use the bark from eucalyptus trees to keep my birds entertained.


What You’ll Need:

  • Eucalyptus bark, I try to use bark that the tree has already shed, but sometimes I peel loose bark off the tree
  • Oven

Steps:

  • Step 1: Gather pieces of Eucalyptus bark (use bark that is loose or has been shed from the tree).

  • Step 2: Put in the oven for 30 minutes at 200-250 °F (90-120 °C) to kill any bugs that might cause problems for the budgies. (Soak the bark in a little water before putting it in the oven to prevent it from burning or smoking.)

  • Step 3: Allow the bark to cool in the oven.

  • Step 4: Hang it inside their cage with a clip and watch them chew it to shreds.

They love it more than any of the toys I buy in the store.
