Bird Climbing Nets What Are They and Are They Good or Bad for My Bird?

Bird Climbing Nets What Are They and Are They Good or Bad for My Bird?

Last Updated on by Mitch Rezman

Bird climbing nets – personally we think they are a great idea and we ship lots of them. We’ve been shipping them for years and people rave about them.

If you’re looking for something that easily exercises and entertains your bird while providing enrichment a bird climbing it is for you we have no negative feedback from any of our customers about bird climbing nets. 


Until now.

Were busy – we chat with you and answer your questions. We’ll fulfill orders. We try to do the best we can. Not too long ago a woman named Bonnie Jay was selling us bird climbing nets under the moniker of Starbird.

One day she ran out of climbing nets – Ronnie was Bonnie’s former partner. We had done business with him for years. We started selling Ronnie’s nets. 

Is there a difference between climbing nets from two different manufacturers? They all are made from abaca fiber.

Trust me, the natives of the Philippines or Ecuador making these bird climbing nets are not sitting there with micrometers and referencing ISO 9000 specifications for your birds climbing net so every net will be a little different.

By the way – abaca trees are like banana trees without bananas – now you know

These are abaca fiber climbing nets enabling your bird to exercise providing additional enrichment activities.

These are really good helpful accessories for your bird – why doubt is being planted in people that they might be in safe is beyond me. Birds being in the care of humans is unsafe. Birds walking on pieces of rope are having fun. 

I want some of the 10 of thousands of caged bird keepers reading then send me pictures and or videos of your birds using them climbing at them gotten from us or from anybody to show all of the other case bird keepers reading this newsletter that they are great freaking accessories to provide for your bird.

I’ll even go you one better. Send me a picture or video of your bird on the climbing net – anyone’s climbing net and I’ll send you a five dollar gift certificate.

Our homes are nothing like the South American rain forests. The Serengeti plains in Central Africa. NSW Australia. Yet we bring these birds into our homes and say “hey just act natural – after I lop off your wings”.

Wrought iron cages – bird jails are counterintuitive. Aside from a barbed wire fence, a cockatoo may land on here and there how much metal do birds typically climb on in the wild? Not a whole lot. It’s trees, shrubs and fiber.

We love to introduce trees like the Java Tree stands because they will challenge your bird’s feet and it provides the birds someplace to go one side of the cage – but not every home can handle the real estate

Last week I spoke about how little the size the cage manners. We live literally in the geographical center of the city of Chicago. All of the buildings in our neighborhood once were basically mansions but are now floor-by-floor apartments. 

If you visit various parts of the north side or the south side of the city you’ll see rows of bungalow homes after rows of bungalow homes and I’m talking 1500 to 1800 ft.²

By demanding that a caged bird keeper must have a cage for his macaw at least 8 feet long basically bans every apartment dweller and bungalow resident in the United States from having a bird – but I digress.

You can bring one of our Aronico abca fiber climbing nets, hanging from the ceiling, perhaps attaching to the cage and provide a huge recreational area for your bird without sacrificing one square inch of floor space.

Do we really need to keep talking about this? We’ve made the commitment to bring the birds into our home – what are we going to do to make the bird feel more like a guest than a prisoner?
