Tony made Visto and Smurfette a couple of new portable perches tonight.  He got his ideas from a website that were charging $23 and $29 for something similiar to what he made.  He is thinking about setting up a home business making them. 


He would charge $15 plus shipping for this one.


He would charge $18 for this one, plus shipping. there is a spot on this one that he can add a food bowl for an additional $2.

He is going to take a couple up to the petstore and see how they do.  WHat do you guys think? would you purchase them?

He did a great job!  I hope the pet store likes them and takes them in for him thumb  I have seen many items made with the PVC pipe but we have never had anything made with them.  Visto looks pretty happy on it!.....does he get a good grip on the pipe?  It's not slippery?  Let us know what the pet store says!!

Tony took the sanding tool on his dremel tool and roughed the pipe up.  the connectors are slippery I guess but they aren't what the birds stand on.  Visto loved it. Ok well maybe it was the toy attached that he loved, but he did stay on the perch for a long time.  until he realized he could get down on the table and go attack Tony for some of his dinner, but that is a different story!  lol

I guess also if there was anything slippery you could wrap some vet wrap or twine (sisal/cotton rope) onto it thumb

cool!  I have an over the shower perch that is pvc.  It essentially hooks over the shower doors then has a long peice that goes down and curves in toward the door to stabalize it and a perch that can move up or down the long peice to the desired height.  That is what I use for HW.  The others are afraid of it and would rather perch on momma  slaph .

I have also seen over the carseat ones like Patti has.  Those are PVC too.

Just more ideas for him.

I love the thought of the table top perches but mine always jump off and run to me instead.  dknow

GREAT JOB!!

Just an FYI, make sure you're using furniture grade PVC, the regular PVC is toxic to birds. Also any glue used to hold the pieces together should be used OUTDOORS as the fumes from the glue is very toxic to birds and humans alike.Using vet wrap is an awesome idea in case a bird is fearful or gets spooked while on the play-gym. Tony can also make full size playgym with either a plastic bottom or wooden bottom on casters, or he can just use the caster popped into the pipe end itself.

absolutely wonderful!! that looks great. i'm sure you probably are, but just incase anyone tries to make them: be sure to cut the pvc outdoors or a room that is well ventelated or away from the fids. it gives off a toxic odor when being cut.  thumb 

i bought the pvc to make skittles a shower perch over a year ago.... i hate working outside  ashamed
