MDF can be dangerous to use if the correct safety precautions are not taken. MDF contains a substance called urea formaldehyde, which may be released from the material through cutting and sanding. Urea formaldehyde may cause irritation to the eyes and lungs. As Budgerigars have a habit of chewing, they can easily ingest this toxin, therefore it is not safe to use.
