The heated perch just came, and I took it all apart and I'm about to put it in the cage... it looks pretty scary. Does anyone have one? There's like a metal plate at the end that goes inside the cage... does it get really hot? I'm kind of concerned... I don't like the looks of this at all. I ordered it from Drs. Foster and Smith.

Ok I just put it in the cage, and they got right on it, but they keep falling off! It's a slippery plastic material and they can't grip it! Pickles has fallen to the bottom of the cage twice now. frown

I would say that it is not safe if they can't successfully perch on it. I wouldn't use it if I were you. Parakeets aren't like us, perches are their beds and are their chairs. Very important to them.

I'm not a parakeet expert though so seek others help, I'm kind of new at this stuff. I'm just trying to help.

....ricky has never fallen off it and he runs back and forth at top speed sometimes. the metal plate never gets even warm dont worry about that. i dont know what to say. lots of us have them and our keets are fine and adore them.

A heated perch is an excellent addition to your bird's house.

The thing is designed to stay at the bird's body temperature.

One of the best things you can do for your bird, unless you live in a VERY WARM climate.

As far as falling off the perch? I have never heard of that. Did you get the right size? Keets should have the SMALL one, not the one made for tiels.
