Jodi Diamond is the founder of Flat Perch. Jodi has been a mobile bird groomer for over 30 years. She travels all over the state to customers' houses or businesses to groom their birds. She checks out the cages, looks at what the birds are eating, and if there are any toys found there, or any challenges that the birds might be facing.
The Right Grip for Your Pet Bird
Often, I see perches in bird cages that are the wrong size or just the gripping version. When birds are gripping onto a perch, they are also exercising their feet. When their feet are flat, they are in a relaxed position. Birds are on their feet most of their life and use their feet habitually, therefore, we wanted to make it easier on them.
The Idea Behind a Flat Perch
Pet stores sell mostly round perches. It would be best to get the correct size perches and vary the perch sizes and different types. That way your bird can put his feet in different configurations much healthier on the feet. Some birds in their homes and in the rescues have problems with their feet or legs. They find it challenging to balance on round perches and need to hold on to the bars to stand up.
This encouraged us to create flat perches. We make flat perches and ramps that can be customized to your bird's needs. The birds can chew, lay, stand, or sit on them because no bird wants to exercise 24/7.
With the flat perches we make, birds can now find a comfortable resting place and take a break!
