Roof Style:

:  at  £23.95  each

Our Birdie Balcony design of cage top perches is ideal for healthy birds and those with special needs that may benefit from a wider landing surface. Handcarfted out of Birch we can make it with either the flat surface or the gently curved surface in the upward position.

The Short Step was originally designed to help Paddy who has one foot that is a little week, to gain easier access to the balcony.

With Budgies in mind The Toy is a combination of easy shredding parts ideal for mini beaks or light shredders so it is sure to delight your Feathered Friend and it is easy to refill.

We have filled this one with a mixture of coloured and natural balsa, birdie bangle, original shredder, cactus chunks, lolly sticks, palm sticks, paper rope and crinkle, the only question will be where to start.

Made to order so please allow 10-14 working days for dispatch.

Looking for a different length or height? Just get in touch and we will be happy to help.
