Re: Dowel size for cockatiel

Commonly, the larger the diameter of the perch, the less pressure is placed on the pads of the claw, which is a good thing.

For a reference, see the Amazon Forum and the Sticky Thread (highlighted in light blue) titled: I Love Amazons - ... With in this Huge Thread is a Segment that is titled something like: Getting to the Foot of the Problem. Whether you have a Mac or a Cockatiel you will find it and the following Post or two helpful in defining the correct perch size for you Parrot. FYI: The vast majority of that thread is helpful for any Parrot species.

In each Morning's early light; there is a promise, an Amazon makes!
