My Kitchen Perch
My human, Jeff made this perch for me when I was a little chick.
It is made from an unfinished bar stool (24" tall) and a plastic plant saucer (22" diameter). Marcia bought the toy hook from a company that is now out of business and she can't find anyone who makes one like it these days. It mainly stays in the kitchen, but can be rolled into other parts of the house. The saucer is bolted to the stool, so it can be taken apart. This is the perch we take to the bird sitter and when we go for a road trip in the car.
My PVC Perch
This perch purchased at a Bird Mart in May of 1998. It was built by the man who was selling them. He had a whole bunch. Marcia has never seen him at the show again, so I guess he went out of business too.
I hope these pictures and measurement help you build one. 1" PVC pipe and fittings where used. The measurements indicated are the cut lengths of the PVC pipe before you glue the fittings on. I don't know what kind of glue was used. Just be safe and be sure it doesn't "off gas" and hurt your birdies. The "poop tray" can be purchased from any restaurant supply.
