    Unfortunately these are no longer in production. They're ceiling protectors from Mother Pluckin Bird Toys.

    Yes, Mother Pluckin' used to sell them. You can make your own ceiling protectors using a length of pvc pipe bought from a hardware store. You will need a pvc pipe cutter.

    If you can't find anyone with backstock you could try checking out fishing tackle sites. Looks very much like a lure.
    Or maybe someone here could make them?

    That's true. Would be easy to cut from a thick sheet of clear perspex and then drill a hole in each end for hanging. I cut sheet perspex to fit the top of my fridge so stop Kobe from chewing the seal. It is easy to cut with a sharp Stanley knife against a metal ruler. You just lightly go over the same cut multiple times until it comes apart to get a smooth edge. The only difficult part is that the edges are rounded - you could just file them down. I have clear ones from Mother Pluckin'.

    There are a couple of alternatives like "feathersmart parrot bird ceiling guard protector w/hardware".

    They stop a bird from climbing up the chain and picking at the ceiling. I tell a lie, the edges aren't rounded - they are cut square:

    PVC pipe is so easy. The tool to cut it is like a giant pair of funky scissors. You just insert pipe, and slowly cut.


    I normally don't use open hooks in the birdroom but I use this too transport Lola when he takes off. He is wild and won't step up and bites the living daylights out of me if I grab him. (granted I would too)

    PVC and two end caps. I don't use any glue since I have littles and the caps are pretty snug.
