Comes in a set of 2 and we will provide you with varied sized perches in each size category and sizes will depend on availability. Parrots need different widths in perch size to help with grooming nails and will cushion your birds feet to prevent bumble foot. Also perches are not always straight, some will have slight curves.
Washers provided are 3.8cm dia. If you require 5cm washers, they can be purchased seperately under Toy Parts - Hardware or please see below under Accessories.
Washer's and eyelet are Stainless Steel, but the bolt that goes into the perch is zinc plated, so we recommend that you attach your perch inside the cage, so the bolt is kept outside of the cage, where your bird cannot access/play with it.
Perch Hardware kits are also available that enable you to make your own perch. The kits are available in all Stainless steel parts, please see Related products on the right.
Some perches may have moss & lichen on them, this is harmless to your bird and as quoted by Peter Wilson (Avian Vet) "They just provide extra nutritional and occupational enrichment." To read the full article on Perching Click here.
All perches are cleaned with Avi Care and then dried, so they can be used straight away. Sometimes you still may encounter bugs on the timber, as it is a natural product and they are sometimes living inside the timber. These bugs are harmless to your birds, but if you are concerned then just put the perches in the freezer overnight.
Perch Placement Ideas:
Adjustable perches can be added to anywhere in your parrots cage.
You can position them in a ladder formation
Can be placed near food dishes for easy removal and cleaning.
Place one up high in the cage so your parrot has a high place to roost at night.
