Re: Resin Perches

Ebay has a bunch of unused stuff but DK price conversions for your currency.

You want to make sure you get an unused perch and find out whether the people selling it can tell you where it came from/verify that it is actually safe...I try to avoid buying things with homes that already have pet parrots unless they store the supplies away from their homes (due to disease risk via feather dust). It looks like a lot of the are coming from the USA, and I would venture to say that whoever is buying them likely is getting them from a parrot place or something (just a guess...could be wrong) but seems like they wouldn't go through the trouble of importing if the product wasn't real...

Re: Resin Perches

Good points regarding use on a play stand.

FYI: Duplicating the working of a Beak is not easy. Personally, I would not use a steak knife as a stabbing action is not a like test. Parrots use a crushing /grinding action. With wood, they first crush into the wood and then applying a grinding action to separate the wood fibers. For a test at home, likely an adjustable set of pliers. They commonly have an area with ridges for griping a nut that could be used to determine force resistance.

My understanding of Resin for this kind of use is that it is like concrete in that it binds the Reinforcement Bars or more likely here Filaments together to create shape and structural strength. Which would be much like how fiberglass and epoxy works. I have seen what you are talking about used to create rock appearing structures for a wide cross-section of applications.

Will be interesting to see the end result and how it stands up to the force of a Mac at Work!

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