Does anyone have a ficus tree, the kind you buy at a nursery as a house plant, in with cockatiels? I've read different opinions some say they are safe, others say they are not. Have you kept it in the pot it came in or do you take it out and rinse it off and replace the dirt with some organic dirt with no fertilizer in it? I'm planning a new aviary for my 2 cockatiels this year. I was planning on putting in some grasses planted in the ground that would come up through the wire bottom and putting a small tree like a ficus either a dead or live one, as I know the leaves will probably be eaten, for a natural looking perch. I usually kill a live ficus in a matter of months in my house so it may be a dead one by the time it warms up to make my aviary.
