Bird-safe heated perch gives your pet bird the perfect way to stay warm
Warm cage perch features added texture to give birds a better grip; irregular surface reduces foot cramping
Irregular surfaces on textured bird perch reduces foot cramping
Keep your bird warm and his feet and nails healthy with a sand-covered thermal perch. Thermostatically controlled warmth circulates through the bird's feet, providing a safe and therapeutic perch that can help birds in air conditioning or other colder areas, to offer a safe, consistent source of warmth to stabilize the bird's environment. Sandy coating helps your bird keep his grip, while offering a safe surface to wear down nails and beak. Irregular shape of perch ensures your bird has multiple diameters to perch upon, reducing foot cramping and pressure sores. Controlled to an optimum avian body temperature. Constructed of sturdy scratch- and bite-resistant nontoxic plastic. Mounts easily to wire cages. Low voltage electrical supply (12 volts). Cord sits on outside of cage, but is protected by a spiral wire from biting and chewing. UL-listed.
Decide where to place perch. Place in upper third of the cage. Place perch adjacent to the highest perch, as most birds select the highest spot for sleep and safety. Do not place over food or water bowl. Do place where bird will be most comfortable.
Unscrew retaining flange from the perch. Run the perch cord through the bars of the cage. Place the threaded end of the perch through the birdcage bars. While holding the perch in place, slide the retaining flange up the cord and screw the retaining flange onto the threads. Hand-tighten until the Sanded Thermo-Perch is firmly in place.
Plug the AC adapter into an outlet and then plug the adapter cord into the perch. It can take up to an hour for the unit to reach its consistent temperature.
Be patient and leave the perch alone. It may take some time for your bird to use the perch regularly. Some birds are wary of any new object in their cage. It may take a week or more for your bird to get used to having a new perch in his cage.
The Sanded Thermo-Perch is thermostatically controlled to help birds safely regulate their body temperature. Your bird will position itself on the perch based on the amount of warmth he desires. The Thermo-Perch is not intended to be the only perch in the cage. Your bird will choose when he needs the warmth, and there should always be at least one other non-heated perch to use.
Cleaning: Use a damp cloth or paper towel to wipe off the perch. Do not immerse in water. If you would like to use a disinfecting cleaner, like Poop-Off (#814003), lightly mist the perch with the cleaner and then wipe dry. Take care not to mist the area where the cord enters the perch.
Providing the variety of perches your bird needs is easy and inexpensive. A wide range of perches is available commercially, and you can also fashion a number of suitable perches from natural materials.
Several furnishings are needed for the cage. These include perches, dishes, grooming supplies, nest box, cage cover, and toys. Ensure that when accessories are in the cage that the bird still has plenty of room to fly and move around.
