Great for bird foot comfort and preening
I love Booda cables. They are brightly colored and attractive looking in the bird cages, come in many lengths and styles, and are a good value for the money. I use them in my cockatoo's main cage, travel cage, and for hanging perches. They add to variety of size/textured perches for my cockatoo. She favors them over the ribbon wood, manzinita wood, or other perches I offer her. As a bonus, she loves to preen the small cotton strands out of them, so they serve a toy function also. Some of the manufacturers recommend you wash them, but I have found that sometimes the glue comes loose that holds the end cap on after a wash. I do however follow the manufacturers recommendation to keep them trimmed of long strands to keep from foot entrapment- usually an annual task. I like to replace the heavily used ones every two years as they get used up being preened, but less often used perches have lasted a decade.
