Who we are

Our Story

Traditional pet stores are dominated by bold and colourful products vying for the attention of human shoppers eager to please their feathered companion…but has anyone asked the birds what they prefer? The Flock Shop was created when Elaine, parrot breeder and trainer of over a decade, and Logan, product designer and engineer, did just that. 

This website is dedicated to providing high-quality, Canadian-made bird perches, swings and cage accessories that stimulate your bird’s natural instinct to forage, experiment and play. 

WE're here to help!


Our Flock Shop is located in the beautiful Muskoka region of Ontario, Canada. We take inspiration from the many local forests, beaches and rock cliffs that are abundant in this beautiful part of the country. 

Our Ontario wood branches are sustainably harvested from unsprayed trees on privately owned property, with full permission. Branches are properly cleaned within two weeks of harvest. The cleaning process includes 24 hours of soaking, followed by scrubbing, drying and baking in the oven for several hours. This extensive process removes natural debris and kills any potential microorganisms on or under the bark, ensuring a safe product for your feathered companion. Stainless steel hardware is added before shipping to you and your bird.

Our flagstone is handpicked from a local landscape supplier in Barrie, Ontario. The rock is broken into sizes appropriate for perches — as we cannot control how the rock breaks every perch is unique!  Next, each edge of every perch is filled by hand to ensure they are smooth, and therefore safe for human hands and birdie toes. Stainless steel hardware is attached, and then perches are cleaned to remove dust from the entire process.

Grapevine wood is sourced from California, where it grows natively (and very prolifically!). We work with a partner who harvests it, cuts it into manageable sizes, and sandblasts it before shipping it to our facility. The sandblasting gives it a beautiful sandy colour. Wood is always untreated and safe for our feathered friends. Stainless steel hardware is added before shipping to you and your bird.

Grapevine is a natural material and thus variation in colour and texture is common. The colour of branches can include any combination of yellow, off-white, sandstone, tan, brown or dark brown, and multiple colours can often be found on a single branch. This is not cause for alarm, but rather is one of the characteristics that make grapevine such a unique statement piece in your bird’s environment. As with any wood, please use and store in a dry location with low humidity level to prevent mold growth. 

Manzanita wood is sourced from California, where it grows natively. We work with a partner who harvests it, cuts it into manageable sizes and  ships it to our facility. Some pieces are sandblasted and others retain their bark — a distinct red colour. Wood is always untreated and safe for our feathered friends. Stainless steel hardware is added before shipping to you and your bird.
