Why Get a Portable Bird Stand?
Portable bird stands are a popular stand that lets you socialize your parrot more than you thought was possible.
As flock animals, parrots rely on companionship for emotional health. People who socialize their parrots daily by holding them and letting them out on bird stands report fewer behavior problems such as biting and screaming. Providing a comfortable bird stand all pet birds is important.
There are several styles of portable bird stands that work well for small and medium sized parrots. Some portable bird stands have toy hangers while others are just plain T-style bird stands. Smaller portable bird stands are easy to carry around from room to room while you work. Portable stands for larger birds are great to put on a table and are perfect for taking on trips.
Make sure that the bird stands perches are appropriately sized for your birds feet. Your bird's feet should rest on the top half of the bird perch rather than wrap completely around it. Your parrot will be more comfortable on a properly sized bird stand.
