My Amazon was starting to get sores on her feet because she was always on her sandy perches. I replaced the sandy perches with these Rope Booda perches and she just loves them. While she still has a few different perches to choose from, she spends most of her day and also sleeps on these Rope Booda perches. When needed, I wash these perches with a little bit of dish soap and a soft brush and then let air dry. Her feet have completely healed and she is happy as can be. Great product !!
