Birds spend the better part of their lives standing, and providing feathered friends with a variety of perching surfaces isn't just considerate – it's vital to their well-being. Bird perches are typically made of wood, rope, or cement, but it's also possible to find specialty "edible" perches. Natural, unfinished perches often pull double-duty by giving birds a textured surface to chew and stand on at the same time. Smooth perches, on the other hand, aren't quite as inviting, but they do tend to last a bit longer. Choosing perches that are suitable for your bird's size is a good idea, but remember – healthy feet also need to stretch and contract. While cages shouldn't be overcrowded, birds will benefit from having perches of different textures and diameters to stand on.
