In my introduction thread FaeryBee told me that I shouldn't use wooden dowel perches, but only natural wood perches of varying diameters, to prevent pressure sores.
I already knew that, in fact I replaced one of the two plastic perches included in the cage with a natural wood one, but I replaced the other one with a wooden ladder I bought, mounted horizontally.
It is very helpful because one of my budgies, Celeste, has slip claws in both her feet.
A slip claw happens when the back claw faces forward instead of backward, it can be congenital or caused by dried poop stuck on the feet. In her case, it happened because of the second reason.
She can stay on the natural wood perch, but she is unable to turn around, unless she is at the ends of it, using the bars. On the other hand, she can turn around on the ladder, thanks to the rungs.
So, should I replace the ladder anyway? Or should I replace the natural wood perch with something she can turn around on?
And how can I adapt the cage to a budgie with slip claws in both her feet?
Thanks in advance!
