I'm loving the ladder style perches going up. Great idea! Thank you for sharing

Here is another shot... iPad won't let me attach more than one pic in a reply.

For some reason the 1st pic appears upside down but when enlarge looks right side up...the second pic looks right but when enlarged looks smooshed I don't know how to fix them...lol

Thank you, Daisy... The birds use that a lot.. The whole thing is just snapped together with no glue or anything, but if I was putting birds bigger than my pudgie tiel on it I would want it fastened better. It was super simple to make... We got the idea online from searching PVC play gyms..lol

That's a very nice design, especially since it incorporates the bowl on the bottom for messes. Figuring how to keep things clean and neat is important when designing bird stands.
