    Rope for a perch

    Is rope suitable for a perch that a cockatiel or even finches will use. Because it sways I thought they might like it. Is there any hidden dangers that rope can cause. thank you

    Re: Rope for a perch

    Rope makes a GREAT perch/toy. Please only use the ones made for perches (they have caps ont he ends to attach them to the cage) because they are VERY tightly woven so the bird cannot easily tear it apart and get its feet/head/beak stuck between the twists. They LOVE to try to tear it apart, chew on it...
    The danger is you need to keep an eye on it for fraying, and trim the stings as they come loose so the birds do not get caught/stangled on them. Mine love the rope perches!

    How do you clean those rope perches? I had one and my bird messed all over it. It didn't wash well so I threw it out. I was thinking of getting another but not if I can't clean it well.

    I just throw it in the washing machine (like the one for clothes...) with his birdy buddy snuggle thing. Accually I have about 5-6, for all my birds, but washing them in the machine has been fine .

    do you still use detergent in the washing machine. Because might the rope have detergent in it and that will harm the birds
