Sun Deck Small 8" x 5-1/2"
I have used the smaller one in my bird cages for years. It allows the birds to actually have an area to rest without having to be on a perch all the time especially at night. My birds are now older and are starting to have balance problems and this is where they are choosing to stay.

Also great for rats
I'm not sure that my review will matter as I bought large and small sun decks for my pet rats and not birds, BUT....a lot of rat owners will buy toys and furniture intended for ferrets and birds since there aren't very many of these things dedicated specifically for rats.
Anyway, I bought these to use in a double Critter Nation cage. This cage is awesome, but the wide doors in front make it hard to use shelves and ledges that attach to the bars with a bolt and washer as you need one hand in the cage and one hand out of the cage to attach. The doors are 18" wide so it's very difficult to maneuver around to do this. I needed shelves that can attach to the inside of the cage only. That's where these sun decks came in.
The hooks needed to be bent back slightly to fit over the bars (the DCN's bars are very close together so the hooks wouldn't fit) but after that, they're easy to attach and detach. The shelves support the weight of adult rats and don't move around. What I really like about them is I can layer some fleece on top and clip it in place with mini binder clips, and leave the bottom part exposed to attach additional toys to the wire. My rats like having the additional space to climb and perch on.
