    Concrete Perches (Nail / Beak trim)

    Hi, I want to get a perch or two to help trim Menks nails.
    No sandpaper perches

    So far I found www.perchup.com but can not find anyplace that sells them in the larger sizes. If you know let me know.

    What kind of concrete perch did you get?
    Where did you get it from? (online)

    I've got a couple of different types of cement perch for my birds, some nobbly like a tree branch, some smooth.

    I've found they dont really trim the nails, but keep them rounded so their nails don't get like little needles.

    With things like this I like to buy them at shops, so I can feel it and check it out properly. All pet shops here have cement perches in so just shop around I guess.

    Here's a Link to Polly's pet products. This is the type of concrete perch I have. Just don't make it the highest perch in the cage...it may cause irritation that way. I move mine around so he's not standing on it too much.

    Re: Concrete Perches

    Does it hurt the bird to stay on the concrete perch all the time? Boomer has 3 perches in his cage and the concrete one is the one that he is always on. I hope it doesn't hurt him. So far, it doesn't seem to.

    After a while, it could hurt his feet a bit. I usually just rotate all of the perches once a month or so. Homer's "favorite" perch is whatever I put highest in his cage.
