New and Improved!
Now your bird can have the health and comfort of a natural wood perch, along with the safety grip and nail benefits of a pedicure perch. Only the Superoost™ combines Manzanita along with patented pedicure pumice grips. Manzanita is one of the hardest woods available, which provides a long-lasting perch. We then add 100% natural cosmetic grade pumice to the sides for grip and nail health. Now available for both horizontal and vertical bar mounting.
Just as in nature, each perch is unique – in shape, color and texture. No two perches will be the same. 100% natural – and made in the USA. No dyes or coloring added - just natural manzanita and pumice!
Now you don’t make sacrifices. You can have a Manzanita perch, one of the most durable natural wood available, along with the health and safety of a pedicure perch. Only from SF&B!

Manzanita Pumice Pedicure Superoost™ - Medium
The large perch is what is recommended for African Greys, but it seemed too big to me, so I bought both a medium and large perch. I was right. The large is too large and doesn’t seem like she’s that comfortable. It took several days for my Grey to step onto the perches, but that’s normal for lots of parrots. I replaced regular cement perches with these new manzanita/pumice perches. I haven’t had to trim my Grey’s nails in over 3 years because of the cement perches, but shortly after the new perches, her nails became noticeably longer and sharper and now I have to trim them which means lots of toweled drama. After my weekly disinfecting and scrubbing, I don’t think these perches will last that long. It seems like I’ll be scrubbing off the pumice part. The idea of the perches is quite clever, however, but needs to be perfected. Also, they don’t fit that well in the cage bars as they kind of wobble a bit.
These were made for cages with vertical cage bars. My cage has horizontal bars. Can’t use these. I was bummed because they are wonderful perches. Hope my husband can fix them but for the price it is frustrating that I have to fix them.
We were so looking forward to getting these perches! My birds are notoriously difficult about trimming their talons and these seemed like the perfect solution. They are not. Who designed them? The part that fastens to the cage is fixed in place...in the wrong direction. A total waste of money.
I have purchased 3 of these- excellent perches that are great for my birds’ feet
