Hey, so I have been needing new perches for my birds for a while. I have three sticks that I have washed with water and striped the bark as much as I could. They are maple. Is there anything that I should do to them to make the sticks sanitary and free of disease, fungus, etc.? Thanks again!

Just make sure you dry them thoroughly before using them in the cage (assuming they're all clean and ready to go otherwise). You can put them in the oven at a super low temp for a few hours.

I sprayed my willow branches down with some white vinegar and let them air dry as a last step before using them.

I do this sometimes also but w/ dirty perches that are wooden.
