Sanded Thermal Perch Small
Our GCC loves his heated perch. We keep our house rather cool and it gives him a warm spot to sit in his cage especially after his bath. No regrets at all with this purchase and, as always, Drs Foster & Smith offers wonderful quality pet supplies to keep our birdie well spoiled!

I got the sanded thermal perch for my thirteen year old cockatiel. I had noticed him sitting with fluffed up feathers and was concerned that he might be cold, especially at night when I like my room to be cool (his cage is in the bedroom). The perch has a decently long cord and I had no trouble getting the perch to be both plugged in and in the place I wanted within the cage. I put the perch around the upper 1/3 of the cage and in a corner where my bird likes to sleep.
I put some millet above the perch to encourage my bird to approach the perch. Within a week I started to find my bird on the perch when I came home and the millet was quickly gone. It makes me feel better knowing that he has a place to go when he gets cold.
The temperature is warmest at the end/tip of the perch and lowest near the wall of the cage. At no point is the temperature too hot. I regularly touched the perch during the first two weeks and can confidently say that the temperature is maintained consistently and that I have no worry that my bird will be hurt by an overheated perch. The texture of the perch is nice and bumpy without being too rough.
Overall, I am very satisfied. It was worth the money I spent.

My birds had the traditional thermal perch for 9 years and now I just have to say: what an upgrade!
This sanded perch is actually lighter, has a great design, and my conures are happier than ever!
