Protects against bites & scratches: Birds have sharp claws combined with a strong grip which can result in marks, scratches, and even painful bleeding puncture wounds on the bird owner’s skin. Even the tamest bird is known to bite if startled or upset.
More Balance & Grip: Birds maintain a strong grip around a dowel but will easily lose balance when standing on a flat, moving surface (as on bird owner’s arm or hand). The wooden perch itself sits elevated over the fabric to allow a bird to grip around it.
The Arm & Hand Perch adjusts easily to the bird owner’s arm OR hand. Once it has been installed with the desired tension, the locking anchor keeps it in place, and the elastic cord will allow the owner to slip the arm and hand perch on and off easily, day after day, without having to make any additional adjustments.
Diameter of Perch: 1.5" - suitable for average sized Macaws, Cockatoos and larger Amazon Parrots
NOTE: The preferences of the dowel diameter may differ, depending on a bird’s past perching habits and physical challenges. It is best to choose a dowel size that is close to what a bird is using in its cage. The perch is removable and can be replaced with another size.
The base consists of heavy duty, gold/tan, distressed, faux leather that LOOKS and FEELS like real leather. Unlike the vast majority of faux leather, it also breathes like genuine leather. The top layer consists of polyurethane and the back, which touches the skin, is comfortable, soft, cotton fleece. Since the fabric’s strength exceeds 125,000 Double Rubs (standard of measure), it is rated as “Heavy Duty” (15K+ is considered Heavy Duty). The extra-strength fabric allowed us to avoid grommets altogether, which was important since all the grommets we came across contained zinc (resulting in heavy metal toxicity), with the exception of one plastic version which we found to come off easily as the fabric stretched. So the best solution was a fabric that was so strong that holes, once heat sealed, didn’t need to be reinforced.
