Perches should come in all sorts of sizes and shapes, whether big, small, flat or textured. One thing to keep in mind about perches is keeping a variety of them in your cage. Perches of varying sizes are essential in a parrot's cage. It allows budgies to keep a healthy fingernail length, sharp and smooth beaks, a useful scratching material and would benefit them to exercise their toes while they're in their cage. One size does not fit all. Perches for an Amazon parrot will not be the same for a budgie. There seems to be a preference for roosting perches that their toes should wrap 75% around the perch for optimal comfort and secure grip. The toes should not be overlapping, and the toes should not touch at all. In fact, there should be a little space between the toes when it is perching. Please be mind full of the perch size for your parrot.
