Hi all, can anyone advise me what perches are best or what I should use to keep my Greys nails trimmed. My girl Matilda was using a multi shaped concrete perch which is soft on top for the pads of her feet and rough on the bottom for filing down her needle sharp nails. She is now not using that perch so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

cheers, Steve 🦜😃

Is the concrete perch sitting highest in her cage? They tend to sleep on the highest one. Nothing works for Timber as far as nails go. I just have to haul him to the vet and have them clipped when necessary. Good luck!

Hi Timbersmom, I just got back on the site after my password had been refused. I created another one so all good. The concrete nail trimming perch is at the top of the cage. I’m hoping she starts moving around on it more like she used to. Vets want $300 for a nail trim. 🤣

I have those in my birds' cages, but quite  honestly they haven't really worked for me. I actually found a bird groomer who makes house calls. Super convenient when you have 13 fids' nails to trim! I always love having someone else be the bad guy!

Perhaps there's one in your area.

I have a variety of perches in Alfie's cage with different shapes, sizes and materials but I still recently had to have Alfie's nails blunted at the vets. He only had one nail that was a little on the long side but they were all needle sharp. Fortunately my vet was very reasonably priced!
