    Another budgie customer wanted sand sheets and asked why sand was on them. I explained that this was in part to stop budgies’ feet getting sores and developing bumblefoot (a bacterial infection that can occur on the feet of birds, rodents and rabbits).

    He said that the breeder had told him to put the sand sheets in the cage sand side down and then cover them in newspaper. Apparently the sand is too rough for budgies’ feet!

    If they're anything like dog breeders I'm surprised they didn't recommend a special Royal Canin unsanded-sandpaper.
