6 inch “Mixed Bag” Ontario Wood Perch
$9.00 – $10.00
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!
What is “Mixed Bag” Ontario Wood?
The perch you receive will be the length and diameter you specify and will be one of the following bird-safe wood species that are native to Ontario, Canada: Maple, Basswood, Poplar, Elm, Ash, Walnut or Fir. Surprise your bird with a safe Ontario perch that offers natural variety and texture in the cage environment.
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.
