Ah it's the cool watercolor keet photo. I love the branch, that must be very comfortable for parakeet feet.

Really? That is so cool, that you made it yourself! We have a lot of apple trees in the general area, I will have to go out and see if I can get a branch like that. Thanks for the idea!

They really like the branches just make sure you put the branches in the oven to kill off the bacteria.

Right definitely, I will be sure to clean and disinfect them thoroughly, to protect the keets!

Cool pic. smile My guys love apple tree branch perches too. They like to chew on them smile
I usually scrub with acv/hot water and then bake for about 30 mins at 200 degrees

That is a nice perch. I think I'll try to make a perch sometime.

If you are going to make perches, you have to make sure they are made from keet safe tree branches. And be sure the trees in your area are not treated with pesticides. Trees by roadsides are not good because of pollution.
Here's a list of non toxic(safe) and toxic- trees, plants and veggies http://www.parrot-and-conure-world.com/non-toxic-for-birds.html
You don't have to use only apple tree branches, any from the safe trees are fine.

Excellent advice kk...rule of thumb is no trees with anything of a sap like feed to them, such as birch or evergreens also there are others too like cherry so yes they should check..

As I have said before it is abranch from my apple tree. I baked it to kill bacteria and we don't use any chemicals in the gaarden. They enjoy chewing the bark off.

Yes you did a great job Luvanimalsdearly - I'm sure your keets are very appreciative!

kksuns was just making sure other forum members remembered to use safe alternatives, which is also very important. So thank you very much kksuns, that was very helpful!
