Theses items are not pre-made and are available in small numbers only. Please be aware there can be some wait time to prepare your order. Bolt on perches are a great addition to your birds’ cage. They are easy to attach to the inside or outside of the cage and can also be used in aviaries. Each natural branch has been hand selected by me from safe, native trees. They all have bark on them, so they’re great for your large parrot to chew as well as being good for their feet and beak. There is a mix of Paperbark, Bottle Brush, Wattle, Eucalypt, Casuarina and other native branches.
These branches are gathered locally, from fresh native trees (normally in areas that are soon to be cleared for development). The branches are cleaned via a light scrub (to remove insects and debris, without taking too much bark off), then disinfected with F10 (bird safe veterinary disinfectant) and sun dried before use. As a natural product, each branch will vary and may have some natural imperfections. These branches are normally fairly straight and don’t have forks. If you’d like a forked branch, check out the individually listed Unique Forked Branch.
The branch of these perches measure roughly 30cm long (allow for a difference of 1-2cm) and come with a wingnut and 2 washers. The perch diameter for these extra thick perches is at least 5cm and suits very large parrots. Due to the branches being very large and heavier than the other sizes, I use a particularly large stainless steel bolt to hold them. For thinner perches and other lengths, please see HERE.
100% stainless steel hardware is used, for the safest product for your bird. Each perch comes with a wingnut and 2 washers, to attach the perch to cage or aviary bars. These extra thick perches come with the larger, 50mm washers included. You can choose to downgrade to the the smaller 32mm washers, which are standard for the normal thin and thick perches, however please check your birds’ cage bars first. The large washers are required for cages with bar spacing of 2cm or more and provide extra stability for these very large branches. Because these extra thick perches are made for very large parrots, the large washers are automatically included.
It is recommended to provide your bird with a range of branch thicknesses and bark types. See the ‘description’ tab below for details of what perches will best suit your breed of bird. When multiple perches are ordered, I always aim to provide a variety where available. If you have a preference of which bark type you receive, please mention this in your order notes and I will do my best to accommodate. Please note, all types might not be available at all times and I always provide a fair variety.
