|"The Thermo-Perch solves the problem of providing consistent warmth for exotic birds in their cages. This is a product long overdue".
Parrot trainer & entertainer (www.parrotshow.com)
|"My female has just discovered after about a week or so that I had installed "radiant heated floors" in my flight (heated perch). She is visibly delighted. I misted her and she sat still for that and then hopped onto the heated perch to preen. She just loves it. The male follows at a discreet distant and lands on a regular perch so doesn't know yet what is so special about that perch though I saw him sitting near it and paying attention so he can probably feel the heat off of it. |
I think this is my favorite purchase from ladygouldianfinch.com after the two chamber, camouflaged gouldian nest box. I bought a second one after I read the story of how your neighbor makes them.
Nice quality products. Everyone in a cool area like I am in Vermont should have a heated perch I feel. I have two infra-red heat lamps to use as night lights and extra heat at night and have acclimated the birds to our house temperature since the flight is open to the room comfort if they want it. Just gives a little spot of heat for those little feet."

Maintains the optimal bird body temperature varying between 102º-107ºF along its length, allowing the bird to pick the spot that will provide the warmth it needs when it needs it! This consistent source of warmth stabilizes the bird’s environment and contributes to the bird’s overall health and helps reduce avian stress.

Attaches easily to wire cage
|Thermo-Perch gives them the option of using it only when they feel the need for warmth.
When birds "fluff-up," it is a sign that the bird is cold and trying to conserve body heat. Traditionally we have turned to heat lamps to provide the needed warmth. With heat lamps it is hard to know how close to place them to the birds and how long to leave them on.
Made of sturdy scratch and bite resistant
Clean with soap and water

Finches, Cockatiels, Parakeets, Canaries
*Please Note: When you see the (small) Finch Size Thermo-Perch for the first time, it appears too large for the little finches to wrap their toes around the perch. My understanding is that you want the bird to have as much of its foot laying against the perch so that it can absorb as much heat as possible up into its body. Place the Thermo-Perch into the cage and allow the birds several days to get used to it. The birds will rest their bellies on the warm perch to further enhance their warmth.

Amazons, African Greys, Pionus Parrot
