Why are dowel perches bad for birds?
The bird’s feet are not the only area of concern; wire perches also affect bird feathers that accumulate dust, dirt, and debris as a result of sitting in contact with them for long periods at a time. Dust particles can irritate or even cause respiratory problems when inhaled by birds or people who live with birds, such as children. Perches made from non-toxic materials like wood do not present these risks to bird health over time because they don’t pose any risk if cleaned properly ( meaning no corrosive metal content). They don’t need to be replaced too often either!
Wooden dowel bird perches provide many benefits: It is difficult for bacteria colonies to grow on wooden dowel bird perches because they are porous and dry so the bird can maintain a healthy, clean footpad. Wooden dowel bird perches are also very durable and strong if made from quality materials such as kiln-dried wood (meaning there is no risk of splinters).
