Foraging Kabob Platform The Surfer for Mini to Small Parrots

The Surfer Foraging Kabob platform perch with scalloped edges is ideal for most cages whether for internal or external use. Available with or without Stainless Steel Foraging Kabob.

Both sides of the perch are fitted with a stainless steel insert so that it can be turned and or used safely as a regular flat perch without the Kabob.

We made the this streamline version for Trumper, our little budgie customer with several toes missing. The Kabob is perfect for adding fresh foraging treats or their favourite shredding parts. 

For the Kabob in the Central Position the ideal length would be 25cm.

We have used Kiln Dried Pine so that we could achieve a nice flat surface and we have combined this with  stainless steel fittings.

Made to order so please allow a maximum of 14 working days for dispatch.

Need a different size or design? Just get in touch and we will be happy to help.

Little Trumper
 has several toes missing so whenever
he asks, can you,
we always do our best to
make his perches just the way they have been requested.

Trumpers Kabob is at the fixing end and in this picture it is not in use.

Gladio & Ignis

wasted no time in enjoying their new Kabob, and who can blame them, that looks super yummy.

The boys Surfer is 25cm long with the Kabob in the centre so they can both get their beaks into it.
