What is a Flat Perch?
A platform or flat perch is flat than the normal round perches most often used. Round perches should be used as well however different variation and the use of platform perches can benefit birds. Platforms come in different sizes and are attached to cages just like round perches.
How Do Birds Perch In The Wild?
Trees have branches that vary in diameter, length and structure so there is no one size that fits birds. Therefore in our cages we should vary perch sizes as well. Branches also sway and swing so moving perches, like swings are also a great addition to add to your birds cage.
Birds also fly down on the ground to forage, a flat surface, which we stimulate by using a platform perch.
