Carpenter Ladder Medium
Birds Love It!
We're putting together a new, bigger cage for our Lovebirds and are adding more fun accessories. I loved the bright colors on this ladder. It was much bigger than I thought it was but we had bought a much bigger cage than they had so it fits right in. It's like a big perching area and they love it too. Plus, it looks very festive!

I placed one in my Parrotlet's cage and one in my Blue-Crowned Conure's cage. They both like to chew on older ladders because they love the wood, however they don't bother the colored hooked ladders. I really like the fact that they come in different sizes. They do the job!

Pros and Cons
Purchased the Small size.
It's kind of ugly. Colors aren't the most attractive, rungs are spaced pretty far apart, it's a bit big and bulky. I know it says that the length is 12", but somehow, it seems much shorter.. Might have to do with the rung size, count, and spacing. It's probably great for birds, but I wanted something more compact for my rats..
Pros: I DO like the way the hooks are screwed onto the top. You turn the hooks parallel to the bars to get them through the bars, then turn them again so that they're perpendicular, allowing them to hook on the bars.
Cons: Not very secure. The hooks are pretty big, causing the ladder to wobble and move like crazy. Honestly, I don't know of ANY cages that have bars that thick. I dont know why the hooks have to be so big.

My Parrot is Afraid of it!
Colors are very bright which most birds like - mine doesn't. Old ladder has mild coloring. This ladder as a lot of paint on it and smells like it. My bird loves chewing old ladder and I can't find another like it. Afraid to let him chew this one if he gets over being afraid of it because he would be chewing the paint.
