If you are looking for the right perch for your bird's cage, there are special things that you will need to know first. There are some things that you need to remember when you are looking for the right perch. These things are safety, variety, and destructibility. You will see that there are many different shapes and sizes of perches for your bird. You will also want your perch to be sturdy and strong for your pet to sit on safely.
An ideal perch is not too smooth and not very hard. You will also not want anything that is too soft. Smooth perches may be hard to maintain a balance on for a wide clipped bird. This could lead to a damaging fall. Perches that are 'too hard' are difficult to chew up and have fun with for the bird. When a perch is too soft, they may become destroyed to easily.
Wood perches are pine perches that come standard with nearly every cage. There is nothing wrong with them except for the fact that you can do better. You can make your own wooden cage if you are so inclined. You can make it as big or small as you would like and you will be in control of deciding what the bird will have in their cage. You will also be able to make them a perch that will be fit for a king in their palace.
Rope perches will give your bird something good to hold on to. This will also provide them with some fun in their cage. The good thing about the rope perches is that you can throw them in the washing machine when it comes time to clean them. However, rope can start to fray and your bird may get caught up in the rope with their claws. Your bird may also start to chew on the rope and swallow strands of the rope, which of course can cause problems for the bird later on.
The only difference with rope perches is that they are expensive. You can buy your own rope and make your own perch if you are looking to save some dollars. You can have fun with creating your own special treat for your pet bird and giving them something that they can enjoy for a lifetime ahead.
Take your time and think about what you want for your bird. You will have the power to buy anything that you want and give them some entertainment as well as enjoying them play yourself on the perch.
