6″ Lilac Perch
$9.00 – $11.00
Benefits of Natural Perches:
Nothing beats a natural perch in your bird’s cage! Varied textures and widths allow the foot muscles to extend and contract, and most birds delight in shredding the bark off natural perches, providing important mental stimulation and thus helping avoid unwanted behaviour including screaming. A busy bird is a happy bird!
A Note About Lilac:
The lilac perches have a smooth texture, making them easier to clean than many other wood species. Even the small beaks of Parrotlets and Conures can shred their bark, but it takes time and persistence, ideal for shredders with some previous experience (if your bird is brand new to natural perches consider birch as a good starting point).
How our perches are harvested and prepared:
Our lilac 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.
Please select your preferred perch width, based upon your bird’s foot size. All perches are straight.
0.5 – 1" (tiny/small birds), 1 – 1.5" (small/medium birds), 1-5" – 2" (medium/large birds), 2 – 3" (large/extra large birds)
