We also know how crucial nests are for birds. Nests are not just about breeding; they provide a secure, comfortable space where birds can relax and feel safe. The design and placement of bird nests in a bird cage can significantly impact their well-being, making it essential to choose the right one for your feathered companion. That’s why we have an array of nest options, like the Small Happy Hut for smaller birds like finches or budgies. Or for larger feathered friends, there’s the Teepee Bird Hut, which is available in two sizes.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What Are The best perches for birds?
The best perches for birds are those that provide variety in shape, size, and texture, contributing to their physical health and mental stimulation. Natural wooden perches, like those made from Manzanita, are highly recommended because they offer varying diameters that help exercise the bird's feet and prevent foot-related issues. Rope perches, made of cotton or sisal, can provide a softer surface, good for grip and climbing. Lastly, consider adding a few textured or grooming perches, as they can help keep your bird's beak and nails in good condition.
How many perches should I have in my bird cage?
The number of perches for birdcages depends on the cage's size and the bird species, but typically, a well-equipped cage should have at least 2 to 3 perches. This allows your bird to move around, explore, and choose its favorite spot. Ensure that the perches are of varying diameters and materials to promote foot health and mental stimulation. However, be careful not to overcrowd the cage as your bird also needs space to fly, play, and stretch its wings. As a general rule, there should be enough perches for comfort and exercise, but still ample room for your bird to move freely.
How to clean bird perches?
Cleaning perches for birds is essential to maintain your pet's health. Firstly, remove the perch from the cage. Use a bird-safe disinfectant or a mixture of one part vinegar to two parts water, which is a non-toxic alternative. Scrub the perch with a brush to remove droppings or any residue. For wooden perches, use a stiff brush, while a toothbrush can work well for plastic or rope perches. Rinse thoroughly under warm water to ensure all the cleaning solution is removed. Allow the perch to air dry completely before placing it back in the cage. It's recommended to clean perches once a week, but if your bird is sick, daily cleaning might be necessary. Always monitor the condition of perches and replace them if they become too soiled or damaged.
