You are likely used to seeing birdcages from King’s Cages and various toys for birds of all sizes on the Bonka Blog. It isn’t often we get to change things up and check out something like a playstand. But that’s exactly what we have for your pet today with the King’s Cages PP 503 Playstand!
Those who are new to birdkeeping may not be aware of what exactly a playstand is, or how providing one for your pet can offer some major benefits. Quite simply, a playstand is a free-standing structure that is used as a play area for pet birds. You can pretty much think of it as a jungle gym or a playground for your avian amigo. Manu of the same amenities that are found inside of a premium or high-end birdcage are also found on the King’s Cages PP 503. These include Wooden Perches, Feeder Bowls, a Removable Seed Guard for preventing messes, a Slide-Out Grate and Tray for easy cleaning, and even an Upper Arch for hanging your pet’s favorite toys. The only real difference is that a birdcage is used for confinement, while a playstand like the PP 503 is purely for recreation, and your pet will be able to fly around the room or area where you have it set up. And when it comes to playstands for birds, you would be very hard-pressed to find one with a better build quality and luxurious features than the PP 503. This is truly an outstanding investment for the happiness and well-being of your lovable pet bird. Your winged wingman will love and enjoy the King’s Cages PP 503 Playstand and all of the awesome features it has to offer.
If you are familiar with King’s Cages Birdcages, then you have likely heard about the company’s Signature Five-Tank Process for applying a Powder-Coated Finish. The company’s premium Powder-Coated Finish is very highly praised throughout the avian and birdkeeping community, and you will meet many experienced birdkeepers and trainers who will not use cages built using any other construction. That same finishing process is also used for their premium playstands, including the PP 503, and you can very easily identify it with the structure’s Speckled Texture. The reason why the Powder-Coated Finish is so important is because it results in an incredibly well-built structure that is designed for a complete lifetime of use and enjoyment. As you check out the PP 503 and examine its components, it becomes very clear just how much thought and care was put into its development and design. Over time, the PP 503 will inevitably take some abuse, and messes will occur. That’s just the nature of birdkeeping, and it’s what happens when birds engage into repeated play sessions day after day. But throughout these experiences and encounters, the PP 503 won’t become scuffed or damaged or worn-out from regular and frequent use. It will look and function just as good many years down the line as it does the first day you get it and set it up. All you have to do is provide some very easy and routine maintenance and care, and the playstand will always appear fresh and new. Not to mention, the Powder-Coated Finish is truly safe for pets, which can’t also be said for potentially toxic paint-based finishes. You might not realize it, but a cheaper alternative could be seriously harmful for your pet over time.
With a play structure like the PP 503, having an exceptional build-quality is only part of the game. It also has to be fun for pets. And you won’t have to worry about that with the King’s Cages PP 503. Birds totally love this playstand. If you compare it with the other premium playstand from King’s Cages, the PP 502, then you will see that the PP 503 basically offers the same types of amenities, only more of them. With the PP 503, there are Five (5) Play Ladders that your pet can use for climbing and lower-body exercise, as well as Three (3) Natural Wooden Perches for resting and hanging out. The Highest Perch is positioned right next to the structure’s Top Arch, which is ideal for hanging your pet’s favorite toys. This will let your feathered friend relax on the perch and play with a fun chewing toy or preening toy at the same time. There are also Two (2) Stainless Steel 20oz Feeder Cups that easily connect with the structure by screwing on. This is great for feeding your pet and making sure that they stay full and hydrated throughout their playtime session. Many bird lovers will keep the playstand out in the open as a way of allowing their pets to interact with them and become closer with the rest of the family. This is an excellent way to help your beaked pal socialize and spend more time with you, your loved ones, and any other birds you have welcomed into your home. For new or shy birds, this can be especially helpful, as the PP 503 Playstand will allow them to get out and about and experience more physical engagement. And if your bird is more excitable and vocal, then they will certainly make their satisfaction very clear and obvious when you present them with their new playstand. If you’ve never seen an excited and hyper bird, then you really are missing out in life. The PP 503 will change that, as any bird will be thrilled to play on the structure on a daily basis. It’s so much fun! One other improvement that the PP 503 has over its little brother PP 502 is that the PP 503 has a Second Upper Platform Deck for all the fun times spent hanging out and loving the structure. There is so much enjoyment to be had with climbing and perching and being a happy bird!
And King’s Cages put just as much thought into the PP 503 for the birdkeeper as they did for your pet. After all, the birdkeeper is the one who has to clean and maintain the structure, so making their job as easy and as painless as possible is undoubtedly important. We already mentioned that the Powder-Coated Finish is very easy to clean. It’s almost magical to see messes and oopsies wipe right off the cage, as it becomes polished up to look good as new. That’s not to mention the Slide-Out Grate and Slide-Out White Plastic Tray that help to make cleanup even easier. If you know anything about birds, it’s that messes will occur. Anything to help clean the stand will be greatly appreciated, especially in the long-run, as maintenance and cleaning becomes a regular job. And just like you would find on a premium aviary, the PP 503 Playstand comes with a Removable Seed Guard that catches messes and droppings. This prevents any spills from reaching the ground below. If you have ever spilt birdseed, then you know how hard it is to clean up. You will be thankful to have the Seed Guard Skirt ready to catch the messes! Just be aware that the Seed Guard Adds (3.5) Inches to Each Side of the Playstand. This is not included in the structure’s Listed Dimensions of 21.5”L x 34”W x 79”H. Some other features to benefit you include the Four (4) Easy-Roll Casters for moving the playstand, and the ability to Knock-Down the Structure for Pain-Free Storage. The entire structure Weighs (59) Pounds, so you will have no trouble moving it around as needed. You can choose between color options of White, Grey/Silver, Sandstone, Coppertone, Black/Silver, and Green, so pick the one that looks best in your home, office, patio, or wherever your pets will spend their days. We think that all of them look super!
With its size, the King’s Cages PP 503 is best for Medium to Large Birds. There are No Bar-Spacing Concerns, so technically smaller birds can play on it too. But they might be intimidated by the structure and have trouble climbing up the ladders. Almost any Medium to Large Sized Bird will enjoy the PP 503, including Parakeets, Jardings, Cockatiels, Pionus, Calques, Ringnecks, and more. The PP 503 can be loved and appreciated by a Single Bird, or it can become the coolest hangout spot for Multi-Bird Homes.
