My bird (parakeet) has a toy that she perches on and chews on. It has a couple blocks and plastic knobs suspended on a long metal stick with a knot of rope at the end. She's completely attached to it and refuses to play with anything else. Recently, she annihilated the wooden blocks and left an exposed metal pole. I catch her gnawing on it constantly, and I'm not sure if it's good for her. I just don't know what I could do to cover it up with something safe to chew on (or should I leave it be?).

And to answer the inevitable questions, yes, I give her fresh cuttlebones when she wrecks them, some other toys, millet, and all the other works.
Sincerely, Chad.

Replace it with another toy about the same size in the same location. The metal might not be the best thing for the beak.

I can't. She's so attached to it that she knows exactly what it is. I tried replacing it with the same toy in the same place, and she just screamed at the top of her lungs for days and wouldn't go to sleep. Not even kidding.

Edit: what I'm looking for is something I could wrap it in like hemp cord. I just don't know what's safe for her.

Rope, Wood, Leather and Plastic all seem to be safe. As for metal, I'm not sure, I see many a bird toy with metal bells. My parents used to own a bird toy business and that's the majority of stuff they used. Keep in mind their beaks are insanely strong. Also, I would imagine her cage is made out of something metal as all of my birds' cages are (cockatiels, green cheek conure, mini macaw, blue fronted amazon). I don't think just about every cage would be made out of metal if it was all that harmful, considering they have to use their beaks to help them get around.

Wrapping it in rope would work pretty well. She might chew right through that too, but just...wrap it again I guess.

I figured something like hemp cord would be fine. Plentiful, cheap, digestible.
