Shower & Window Perches for Birds
ACTIVE.PLAY Shower & Window Perch
ACTIVE.PLAY is a new line of sturdy and durable uPVC shower & window perches and perch toys that were designed to be fun and functional. These perches encourage companion parrots to move, vocalize, balance, manipulate their feet, be social – and have lots of fun too!
For the Health and Well Being of Your Bird
Water is essential to a bird’s health and well-being. Regular showers help keep feathers and skin in top condition while offering a stimulating enrichment activity. Water play can also sooth a bird’s itchy skin when molting. The perch can also be installed on a window to provide exposure to natural sunlight vital to the physical and emotional health of a companion bird and to keep the bird actively engaged and entertained.

How to Install
Adheres to most smooth, clean, non-textured surfaces. Wipe the surface down with white vinegar or rubbing alcohol and allow to air dry thoroughly. Water method: Rinse the suction cups under warm, almost hot, water. Shake off excess water, then press onto the desired surface. Oil-based method: Apply a very thin layer of cooking oil or petroleum jelly to the suction cups. Mounting Instructions: Press each of them firmly in place, making sure there are no air bubbles between the cups and the mounting surface. Ensure each suction cup is placed over the tile and not the gap between the tiles, as this will prevent them from maintaining suction. Allow the suction cups to set for several hours before adding any weight.
Caution must be taken to always provide a draft-free environment. Parrots will shower more readily if the water temperature is warm with no temperature fluctuations – avoiding radical heat and cold exposures! Once the bird is thoroughly wet, companion owners should vocalize to it, repeating sounds such as: “BRRRR!” and encouraging their bird to “ruffle those feathers!” Ensure the suction cups are not chewed on. Birds should not be left unattended. Provide a warm heating source such as an Avian Light for after shower basking.
The window should be closed and locked. Remove window coverings from the viewing area to prevent tangles. Caution must be taken to always provide a draft-free environment and to monitor companion birds for signs of overheating or cold, such as panting or flung. Adding a preening, foraging or an exercise toy to the toy ring will promote mental and physical stimulation. For added fun, a bird feeder placed outside of the window can attract friends to help entertain and engage pet birds.
Questions about PVC and birds
The PVC material in the toys are made from uPVC and are considered safe & non-toxic for our birds. The difference between uPVC and PVC is that uPVC (or Rigid PVC) does not contain any phthalates or BPA.
