Polly's Tooty Fruity Parrot Perches and parrot stands, like our Polly's Tooty Fruity Parrot Perches, are important parts of an exotic pet bird’s environment. But one simple perch won’t provide the benefits that a variety of parrot perches and parrot stands can. Exotic pet birds and pet parrots need different shapes and sizes of perches and stands for exercise and foot health, as well as adding interest to their environment. Parrot Perches can be uniform in shape – circular, rectangular, or oval – and come in a variety of sizes like our Polly's Tooty Fruity Parrot Perches. Exotic Bird owners should purchase the size that is designed for their pet bird. Irregular shaped perches are usually made of branches, which simulate a more natural habitat. Perches that offer stimulation, like our Polly's Tooty Fruity Parrot Perches, make a great addition to any environment. Rope perch and other flexible types of perches give exotic pet birds and parrots a different type of surface to hop onto, and swings provide exercise and fun. Having a stand for a exotic pet bird or parrot to use outside of the cage is also recommended. It is a safe spot for your pet bird to observe and participate in fun activities. Shower perches are great for bathing pet birds and parrots or allowing them to enjoy the humidity of the bathroom when showering. Shower perches can also be attached to a window. Perches with coarse surfaces are beneficial for nail and beak conditioning, but shouldn’t be the only type of perch provided for your pet bird or parrot. These surfaces can be too rough on a bird’s feet if they have to spend long periods of time on them.Exotic Pet Birds and Parrots are naturally curious creatures, and will want to have a variety of vantage points to keep their eye on what’s going on, as well as comfortable and safe places to rest and sleep. Perches and stands, like our Polly's Tooty Fruity Parrot Perches also create an environment that encourages activity. All of these factors add to the health and well-being of any exotic pet bird and parrot.
