My two keets love their swings so I got them several types to keep them entertained. I don't like the dowel rod as the swing but I easily modified it with a little bit of fleece and some chew beads. It is a great product but the budgie sized one is still a little small for my big boy and he has to crouch to avoid hitting his head. My female has no problem with it. It is easy to clean as I just wipe it down once a week with a damp cloth and the dowel does a good job of keeping their nails trimmed.
