A Perfect Perch

A little while ago I bought a platform perch for Emmy. Because her left foot doesn’t have much of a grip, she would have another place to rest. emmyThe perch was a success. So much so, that the budgies have been squabbling over it. So, I bought another one.coop2The perches come with an attached footie toy (I took them off to give the budgies a little more room). coopThe perches are 4 inches by 4 inches (they come in various sizes). You can find the perches at HappyWings on Etsy.
