Here is my latest "modification" I had to make for Rascal because he was having great difficulty jumping from rope perch up to a higher perch... so I installed a custom made step he could leap to before making it up to the higher perch. I miss seeing him looking up frantically pacing back and forth preparing the big jump.... he would pace back and forth back and forth getting up the courage to jump.... it was funny to see :p

He still has to jump but a more comfortable distance now. He doesn't like to climb on cage bars and will do anything to avoid it lol

Thanks.

He has already used it a couple of times... he seems to like the step... it's soooo much better now he jumps like a frog with ease up to his "feeding station" ;)

LOL... it's a lot of fun. I really enjoy using my vice, saw and drill doing construction trying to figure out how to improve things... safely of course ;)

I still have to figure out how I'm gong to make the bottom perches like.... that's where I'll be put putting their honeystick... making it so it suits 2 tiels instead of just one since I'll eventually have 2 tiels ;)

This is sad lol... I had to modify his custom made step 3 freaking times already!! ... because it wasn't quite right.

Here is the perfected step... now he just casually walks up the stairs singing.... la dee da.... :p

He was really hoping for an mini-escalator - no climbing needed.

Thanks :) I just used some spare perches I had laying around that weren't in use and sawed them into the correct sizes and then screwed them together. It's fun to build stuff...
