Poplar Platforms range in diameter. They are between 3 and 3.5 inches wide, providing a stable surface for Budgies, Lovebirds, Parrotlets, Conures, Cockatiel, Quakers and similarly sized birds. Larger birds may enjoy these platforms rotated vertically as a natural chewing toy, rather than a perch.
Benefits of Natural Perches:
Nothing beats a natural perch in your bird’s cage! This platform gives your bird a place to rest his feet completely flat, fully extending the muscles in a natural way that is not commonly available in a cage environment. The poplar bark is easy to shred, providing important mental stimulation and thus helping avoid unwanted behaviour including screaming. A busy bird is a happy bird!
How our perches are harvested and prepared:
Our poplar platforms 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.
