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 perch diameter, depending on the 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.

  Diameter
Perch Type Medium Large
Dragonwood 3/4" to 1" 1-1/4" to 1-1/2"
Manzanita 3/4" to 1" 1-1/4" to 1-1/2"
Maple Dowel 1" 1-1/2"
Textured PVC 1" 1-1/2"

Base

Unipod glass and natural stone bases come in a wide variety of patterns and colors, allowing you to choose a base that best fits you decor--and bird. 

For a larger view of our available bases, see the "Base Images" link at left under "More Details".

Stem

The Unipod comes standard with a solid stem--which fixes the Unipod at a standard height.  The solid stem/fixed height works well for most situations.  However, if you need a lower/higher stand for training purposes--or simply want the option of raising or lowering the height of your stand--then the adjustable stem might be for you.

Unipod's adjustable length stem is made up of two telescoping stainless tubes, locked together by a snap button that fits through holes drilled through the side of each tube.  The stem has 3 sets of holes--drilled 6 inches apart---allowing you to set the height of your stand to 3 different levels.  The middle hole sets the height of the stand at the same level as the solid (fixed length) stem, while the top and bottom hole raise and lower the stand 6 inches above and below that level, respectively.  You can also collapse the stem all the way down to use the stand at a tabletop height.

Both the solid and adjustable length stems have a welded cone at the bottom of the stem that acts as a stabilizing brace against the base of the stand and eliminates the potential for wobble. (See image at left.)

Food Cups

The Unipod comes standard with two heavy duty, clear acrylic food/water cups.  The cups are made in the USA of non-toxic plastic and are heavyweight enough to stand up even under the toughest beaks.  They are dishwasher-safe and can be used in your bird's cage, as well as on the Unipod stand.

The cups attach to a stainless steel bracket that fits up under the perch.  The bracket is designed so that the cup handles fit under the bracket/perch, where they cannot be unscrewed by eager beaks.

Unipod cups come in three types/sizes:

The half-round cups slide off the bracket for easy cleaning, while the round cups must be unscrewed from the bracket.  Although the half-round (slide-off) cups are convenient, we recommend the round (stationary) cups if your bird that likes to "play" with his/her food, since he/she might find enjoyment in pulling the half-round cups off the bracket and dumping the contents. 

Choose the 5 ounce size cups for small to medium size birds using the Unipod and the 15 ounce cups for large Cockatoos and Macaws.
