Re: Resin Perches

IF you have lots of other things to chew on in the cage, he may not mess with his perch as much...I would honestly go with real wood...Another thought-- some companies that don't ship internationally will ship to a cerrier company that will....like an intermediary. I know that gets expensive, but I imagine that custom resin perches wouldn't be cheap either.

Aside from the toxic risk, it is going to be hard for them to mold a material like this into a shape/texture that creates variation etc without being too smooth or too rough....I imagine that it could cut your birds feet if it is as hard as you say and they try to add natural "bark" texture to it. At the same time, you don't want it totally smooth...so real wood seems like the way to go...since that dust could be ingested or inhaled and you really don't know what it's made of exactly..and what happens if it gets wet repeatedly? The color alone is likely something like a paint or stain..just seems like to many unknowns
