I have been using these for many years, initially when I had a canary develop a pressure sore on his foot. We all know how important it is to use a variety of perches with our birds, each of my birds ha at least 2 of these of varying types. The great thing is they can be washed - I throw them in the laundry and air dry. As with most of the things in our cages, keep an eye on them if you have chewers - you do not want any fraying. I have had big birds not chew and I have had my tiny parrotlet shred one to pieces.
