My budgie’s cage came with plastic perches, do I need any other perches?

Your parakeet will need a few perches of different width and textures set up in its cage. This helps mimic the outdoors, and promotes foot and leg strength in your bird. Look for both wooden and rope perches for your parakeet.
Do not rely on the just the perch that came with the cage. Depending upon the manufacturer, these can be poorly made and using only the dowel could cause sores on the feet.
Vary the width and materials of the perches in the cage to prevent both foot sores and arthritis.
