Description

Your Unipod playstand comes standard with the natural wood or synthetic perch of your choice.  However, if you would like an extra perch--or need to replace your existing Unipod perch--you can purchase that extra perch here.

Perch Type

Choose from among the following natural wood and synthetic options for your Unipod perch. 

All natural wood selections below are harvested in the United States by trusted vendors and are untreated—so you can be sure they are 100% bird-safe.  If you have a favorite type of wood that is not on this list, let us know.  We will do our best to find it, and—as long as we know it is safe for birds—we will be happy to make a custom perch for your Unipod stand.

 Dragonwood is a hardwood that grows in the American Southeast (mostly Florida)—and our personal favorite natural wood perch for all of our products.  We like it because it’s indestructible like Manzanita—yet has a thin, textured outer bark that is less slippery and easier for birds to grip than Manzanita.  A lot of our customers seem to prefer it over Manzanita as well.  Dragonwood is also lighter in color than Manzanita, which a lot of customers also prefer.

Manzanita is a small evergreen tree native to the American West, Mexico, and Western Canada.  Its dense, indestructible hardwood core and attractive reddish-purple outer skin have made it a longtime favorite wood for bird perches and gyms.  In addition to its durability, Manzanita is impermeable--which makes it easy to clean--and a good choice for your Unipod perch if you plan to use the Unipod outdoors.  On the downside, its smooth surface makes it slippery and harder for your bird to grip than other wood choices.

Light-colored Maple is not only a beautiful wood, it is the strongest of all hardwoods—and thus stands up well to strong beaks.  Our maple dowel perches are for customers who prefer a smooth perching surface for their bird to the uneven texture of Dragonwood and Manzanita.

Textured PVC.  We use tough, construction-grade, American-made PVC tubing and rough up the surface to give it texture/make it easier to grip.  Very easy to clean and dishwasher-safe.  A good choice if you plan to use your Unipod outdoors.

 

Perch Size

Your Unipod stand can be ordered with a medium or large diameter perch, depending on the type and size of the bird that will be using it.

Standard perch length is 14 inches, but we can make your perch longer (or shorter) as needed.
