For safe (non-toxic) perches for your Parrot please click here.
We all want our Parrots to have a natural as environment as possible and that means giving them wood to chew on, like they’d enjoy chewing on in the wild.
Here’s or handy list of some of the non-toxic wood your Parrot can enjoy perching and chewing on. Have a look and see what you can find outdoors.
Apple tree wood
Apple wood can be made into many different shapes and has the strong texture Parrots love.
It’s water resistant, strong (great for keeping your Parrot’s beak trim) and it’s a renewable resource too.
It’s lightweight yet durable, perfect for your bird.
Although tough, it’s easy to carve or gnaw into different shapes.
It’s strong and durable and inexpensive too. Christmas trees have fir tree wood, but it’s advised Parrots don’t chew on their leaves.
Grape tree wood
Not only is it popular in reptile aquariums, it’s a hit with Parrots too. It has a natural look and feel.
As it hardens, it splits, so you can hide treats inside. This tropical hardwood is very durable too. See some of our manzanita perches here.
It’s fairly soft and is easy to change into any shape for your bird to play with.
It’s strong enough to resist most bird’s chewing attempts and it’s light enough for your bird to carry around in their feet or beak.
Common in New Zealand, this wood is fun to stand on and just as fun to chew on.
Has a varied texture Parrots like to explore.
This fine wood is strong with an uneven texture your bird can investigate.
It contains natural asprin to keep your Parrot fit and healthy.
Please remember that wood sprayed with chemicals or insecticides will make them unsafe for your bird.
