Large was To big and bulky for my Grey, recommend a medium for a Grey.
Insufficient length of screw. Impossible to use on any of my 14 cages.
I bought 7 perches for our birds. Hope they will help with their nails. Not afraid of them so started using them immediately.
Great Merlyn loves it and I will order another for other bird
I’ve always loved these purchase but the screws aren’t long enough now and they come out of end...
The first few hours, little Buddy the parakeet hid in his bed because of the new object in his cage. By that afternoon, he was all over it! And since that time, it’s his favorite place to sit. He is loving the shiny sparkles on this perch, too.
I thought Mercury would like this 'cause she enjoys nibbling on rough-textured perches and sitting in the corner of her cage to look out the window. It's a good size and shape, but I thought the texture felt a little too sandpapery and it might irritate her feet. However, she does like sitting on/next to it and nibbling on it. I just make sure she has other smooth or soft perches to sit on too so her feet don't get sore. It would be better if the texture was less gritty, but I think it's fine as long as the bird has other options for where to sit.
A bit bigger than I expected, but varied sizes of perches are really important. I set the perch near my amazon's house (we don't call it a cage :-) for about an hour, for her to see it. Then placed it on top, so she could touch it, but it wasn't in her space, then moved it inside. She took to it right away & seems to love it!
This is absolutely not sized for an Amazon parrot. I ordered the large size per the answers given in the Questions section of information. This is sized more for a macaw or large cockatoo. My Amazon’s foot will not go around this perch to give a secure grip. Very disappointed in this purchase as it was quite an expensive perch.
The description of this product makes it sound like you could get a variety of colors, but it all depends on size. The large is green, which is what I ordered for one of my large amazons. I'm not good at visualizing size when I'm ordering things, even when given the dimensions, so I thought and hoped that the diameter was going to be a little smaller. It doesn't really matter, though, because it's good to have a variety of sizes for your bird's feet. I like the fine grit on this perch; I think it will do a better job than many at keeping her beak and her nail tips filed. I've had larger grit perches where I was more concerned that the fleshy part of her feet would get sore. This bird's cage is quite large, but it's not a giant macaw-sized cage. I placed the perch in one of the corners; it didn't fit perfectly but it fit good enough that I didn't have to return it. My amazon is a little shy of it still after a week or so, but she's not scared of it. It'll take a little more time before she's really comfortable with it in her cage.
