Should I get this manzanita tree?

This is on ebay for $199 near where I live. The base is measures 25.5" x 35.5", Width is 33" and 63" tall from floor to top branch. It says good for medium parrots, but it sounds big enough for a macaw. Do you think it's worth it, and big enough for my baby catalina?

Re: Should I get this manzanita tree?

Oo, that looks fun! The only problem with manazanite is it can be slippery. You can wrap a few perches with vet wrap though, or rope to help your bird get a good grip. I think it looks big enough for one bird, its hard to tell the diameter of the branches but comparing it to the rope thats hanging off it, they look a good size.

Re: Should I get this manzanita tree?

It IS hard to tell, and I'd hate to spend $199 not seeing it first, but shipping on these things is expensive, so if I can buy this locally, it's almost worth it! I do have vet wrap; thanks for the tip about it being slippery!

Re: Should I get this manzanita tree?

Oh no - just found this locally on craigslist for $400. I'd LOOOOOVE this. I may need to work on hubby and convince him that the parrot NEEDS this and no other for good mental health

Now that is awesome, I have no idea where I'd put that in my house it looks huge! But you'd have one happy birdie.

Re: Should I get this manzanita tree?

LOL right! It's 36"x72" ... who needs a couch in their living room, anyway? ROFL. It doesn't get much better than this one, though!

Re: Should I get this manzanita tree?

Second one is a good choice as the first one is made for medium parrot with smaller branches.

Re: Should I get this manzanita tree?

I would not get a perch like that one at all. Your Macaw will climb down to floor in 2 seconds and be running amuck in your house. Consider a perch with branches high enough so the bird will stay put.

Re: Should I get this manzanita tree?

My macaw do that only when we're home. If I do forget to pad lock his door and he opens it while no one is home, he stays in his cage on his own. They shouldn't be left unsupervised when they have a way getting down anyway...
