Default Wooden Dowels


I saw a lot of cages with these small wooden dowels and decided to give them a look and purchase them. Im not too sure on what type of wood these are made of though, it just says "hardwood"
Is this safe? Heres a link:
If this isn't safe, please give a link to ones that are safe.

They should be fine, they look like the ones I get here in the UK.

I agree with Cypher, they look like the ones I use, plus they're kiln dried so even if they're made from pine, the kiln-drying process makes them safe

I had these same concerns myself recently but was reassured that they are safe. Majority of the hardwood dowels I saw where either made from either birch or beech. I did ask on here whether they were both these woods were safe and was reassured that both were fine to use. Although I also found some fluted dowels made from pine too (softwood) - which I only found from searching for pine dowels - so these are another option to.
