So I decided to buy the Pocket Perch from the Parrot Wizard blog store because I thought it looked like a very cute portable perch--BEWARE! Though it lists that it is meant for up to Quaker size, my 112 gram Quaker took three tumbles before I gave up on it! No matter how I set it up or how I placed the legs, it still tipped over if he leaned even just a little bit toward me, and I am having trouble finding anything about returns on the website. Definitely interrupted our training session (where he was FINALLY waving just in response to my waving hand) when he toppled over and I had to catch him to keep him from tumbling off the counter top! It's a very cute idea and may be fine for budgies, but at 112 grams, it's really not safe at all to use as a table top perch. Poor Sammy was so confused as to why his perch kept falling down! (I didn't tell him it was because he was so fat! :54 If you have a small conure or a Quaker or even possibly a cockatiel, I wouldn't recommend it as a table top perch, and I might even give it some thought before ordering for a budgie as it turned over REALLY easily--all he did was lean toward me to get some millet and BOOM! Over it went! I will probably use it on his scale if I can't return it, since he won't have to sit long on it there.
