I'm building my parrot a new cage-top training area in which she would only be supervised. I may end up using a bendable rope perch covered in Vet Wrap, or the rope perch in combination with wooden ladders. However, I was wondering if there was a way to make safer bendable perches, that don't use any rope. I saw this tutorial for creating a spherical ("atom") swing, using PVC electrical conduit and PVC connectors. Does anyone know if the PVC electrical conduit is bird safe like PVC pipe? I've seen a lot of people using it but I haven't heard anyone testing it or anything. There is also flexible food safe (potable water safe) pvc pipe (hose). I know this is non-toxic, since it carries the water we drink. I expect only the smaller piping would work as it would need a very strong wire to hold its shape. Either way my idea would be to run a strong SS wire through the pipe, and use PVC end caps which fit both these kinds of piping, with SS hardware to connect it to the cage. Then I would wrap the whole perching surface in vet wrap for grip. I do expect it's not likely to hold up to a parrot that heavily chews their perches, but I intend this to be in training and play areas, with supervised use. I don't know if it would be safe enough to use inside the cage, at least for large parrots. Does this sound like a safe idea? Or is this something that would be dangerous to attempt? I would also really love to be able to create a safe boing; they're my parrot's favorite and she hasn't had one since I stopped letting her play on rope.
