Yes the red perches came with it. The grass will just continue grow, I put it by the window after feeding, if the trays look a bit bare I just top it up with more grass seeds

I put one tray in the lovebird's cage today - he was having loads of fun diving in the grass trampling all over it . I hope he ate some of it while I was out of the room.

I'm going grow some wheatgrass for the birds and I'm going to juice the wheatgrass for myself to use too. How to Grow Wheatgrass - YouTube

Sometimes I can find it in our grocery stores. I can always find it at Pet World and Petco. Our birds love it!
