The Kings Cages TT 70 is a tabletop play stand for birds of all sizes. It has a wrought iron base and stainless steel tray with a U-shaped stainless steel brace that passes through the wooden perch and terminates in two (2) screw-on stainless steel cups. It can easily be moved from room to room.
One of the things birds need from their various perches, swings, and toys aside from staying busy and engaged, is to promote good foot health. A variety of sizes and textures in their perches, swings, and toys is essential for this. A proper perch for any bird should allow their toes to wrap at least 2/3 of the way around the full diameter of the perch. Some bird experts say that the toes should wrap up to 3/4 of the way around the perch. The bottom line is, when it comes to perches, one size does not fit all.
Variety, as they say, is the spice of life, so the perches that a bird has access to should vary in size, and in texture. It's ok for some perches to be smooth, while others may be rough and/or have the bark intact. This gives the feet as well as the legs a good workout. Think of it like walking on a flat surface, vs. attempting to keep your balance on a narrow raised surface, or maybe on a Bosu ball. Both scenarios have their place in a balanced and healthy life.
The Kings Cages TT 70 has a smooth wooden perch. At either end of the perch is a removable 16 ounce cup for treats, water, or whatever else you may want to provide for your macaw or other bird's enrichment. The cups simply screw on and off. The entire play stand can be disassembled very quickly, and with its light weight, you can easily take your feathered friend with you from room to room throughout your day. All you need is a flat surface at an appropriate height and of the proper sturdiness to set the TT 70 on. If you're short on sturdy, flat surfaces and prefer a similar play stand, but one where no tabletop is required, check out the Kings Cages PP B72 Metal Playstand. It is very similar to the TT 70, but is mounted to its own rolling base, with four (4) EZ Roll casters.
The Kings Cages TT 70 is 22 inches (55cm) in diameter and is 16 inches (40.6cm) tall. The wrought iron portion is powder-coated for safety and durability. The perch is made of pine, and is 3.75 inches (9.5cm) in circumference. This play stand easily assembles and disassembles and weighs only eight (8) pounds. If you are looking for a way to get your winged friend out of their cage, and to spend more time with them, the Kings Cages TT 70 is a great way to do just that.
