Depends what has coloured the wooden beads...are they safe dyes etc ? and budgies chew wood. At least with the coloured plastic ones there is no dyes or paint to come away. Those pony beads are easily found in the $2 shops. The plastic makes for easy cleaning too.

Yes i will stick to plastic beads. The swings you have made are bright and colourful. I'd like to make some for my budgies. They have 1 plain one at the moment and there is always someone on it. Thanks for your advice.

okay i finally got around to making that swing!!

here it is ...

and dont worry the wood beads are non toxic, the packet said so :P

 

it took a while for them to want to try it out though.

but for some reason mortimer doesnt like swings he never never goes on them

... i think maybe it is because alfalfa thinks she is queen of the swing and wont let him on

I have put a few in my breeder cages to keep the cocks busy while the hens incubate, and of course a few in the kindie cage too.
