Rope for Perches?
Some parrots will like a piece of rope in their cage as an alternative to
another wooden perch. The feel is different and the bird can get a bit
acrobatic. But, there is a serious risk that the bird could catch a claw and be
injured. Also, the bird will, over time, start to peck threads loose from the
rope and it could swallow some and choke or have intestinal problems.
Plastic perches are a bad choice because they don’t let the bird get a firm
grip and can cause stress to the bird’s feet.
