Corner Shelf – Powder Coated
or 4 fortnightly payments of $15.20 with More info
Corner shelves are a great way to utilise space that may be otherwise difficult to make fun! Pop this platform high up in your birds cage as a nice roosting spot or at another level, with foot toys as a play area for your parrot. It can also be handy to place this near to a bolt-on foraging toy to provide access to that level of the cage. Popular with able-bodied and handicapped birds, it provides a nice spot to ‘chill out’.
The bars and sides of the platform are powder-coated. It attaches to the cage with bolts and rectangular ‘washers’ and will fit most cage and aviary bars. See the last 4 photos for an example of the corner shelf set up in a small, travel cage that has horizontal bars on one side and vertical bars on the other. The bolt with the fixed wingnut head screws straight into the hole in the corner shelf, eliminating the need for loose parts on the inside and outside of the cage.
The shelf has a large ‘lip’ on the curved edge. It is pictured with the lip facing downwards, however it can also be positioned the other way, with the lip facing up. This would hold small items like foot toys on the shelf (until your bird throws them over the edge). The straight edges of the powder coated shelf are 30cm, the ledge is 4cm tall and from the inner corner to the outer most edge (on the curve of the shelf) is 28cm.
I also offer the option of adding a piece of woven seagrass mat onto the platform for a chewable, safe & comfy perching spot for your bird. Replacements can be purchased separately for once the mat gets chewed. I use seagrass mats from Bunnings, that I wash and then soak in F10 veterinary disinfectant. They are thoroughly sun dried then cut to size, using a few small zip ties to stop the cut ends from fraying. The seagrass mat is then attached to the Sundeck with a few more small zip ties.
You can choose to make these seagrass covers yourself, however it’s recommended to wash the mats well before use.
