Default Best perches

So I have been trying to find some new perches to replace the wooden dowels in my budgies cage. I ordered two new rope perches but recently heard they are not safe. Does anyone have any suggestion for better, safe perches and where I can get some? Thanks all!

There are many sources online: dr fosters and smith, petco, and amazon(but only get name-brand products) are some.

Look for natural wood perches. I try to have a couple different kinds. My birds love grape vine perches, but I also have java wood plus some others. They also like the eCOTRITION Snak Shak Edible perches.

Another type of perch that is good are the "manicure" perches or the lightly sanded ones (NOT the coarser sanded perch covers).

I also like the perches that have calcium or manu minerals imbedded in them--it's a two for one. Well three for one: perch, shredding, and nutrients.

In general, you want a perches that vary in size and texture so that the birds' feet get exercise.

Oh, and you can use the rope perches as long as they don't have any tassels on them (trim those off) and if your little one doesn't try to eat it. I have one budgie that will spend an inordinate amount of time picking at a rope perch, so he doesn't have any.

Hope this helps!

Thank you so much I ordered some natural wood perches! I have a variety right now that measure in diameter of half an inch to one inch! How many perches do you recommend in their cage, it measures 24 x 24 x 36

The number of perches you put in the cage will be partially dependent upon how many toys, swings, etc. you have in the cage in addition to the perches.

The various pictures in this link will give you some ideas:

I’ll just add that a platform perch or two is nice, especially if you use a grate floor in your cage.
Enjoy your shopping.
