Perch Size for Kiki
 
I will be ordering a natural wood perch for Kiki's new cage when I order her new cage, and I'm wondering about the diameter I should choose. I originally planned on picking the 24" by 1" dia on this perch here: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...fm?pcatid=8444
But the picture they show on that page is of a Jenday Conure on a 1-1/2" dia perch, and I'm wondering if that would be a more comfortable size for Kiki. What do you think?

I think the 1" would be a better size. She how, on the photo, the conures feet are open almost flat, the foot doesn't even wrap half way around? A good size has the foot curved and almost closed, but not touching. They are a natural perch, so it will be bigger and smaller in some parts, but 1" will be overall diameter.

Have you ever looked at a wacky wood perch? I have a 24 inch one in my budgie cage and love it, they have a loop in each end and it hangs like a giant swing... they are twisty and knotty , and uneven I hung mine about 8-10 inches from the top and it swings and sways , dips and twists with every movement the birds make and that is very good for their feet and legs. If you want a pic of mine I will be glad to take one for you... they are all different and if you have a petsmart in your area you may be able to pick out one that you like right in the store... here is a link to them

Oooh how fun is that! I would like to get the manzanita bird perch as Kiki's main perch, and then I could easily see that as an addition. Thank you!
