You should have a minimum of 3 perches - one for sleeping, and two others made of different materials and of varying sizes. This will give your bird enough variety without overcrowding the cage.

What kind of perch should my budgie sleep on?

As long as you provide a variety of perches in your bird's cage, the choice of which to use for sleeping is up to your bird. Your bird most likely knows, instinctively, where they want to sleep. The only type of perch I would recommend not allowing your bird to sleep on is a sandpaper perch. My personal favorite perch style for sleeping is a Booda perch.

What is a grooming perch?

This is a type of perch for your bird cage that allows for some self-grooming. It is a great way to trim down your bird's nails. They often come in great space-saving styles such as corner perches and half sizes. Look into concrete-blended perches. In my opinion they are the best type of grooming perches.

Where in the cage should I place the perches?

You should stagger the perches throughout the cage in different areas and at varying heights. This will increase the amount of exercise your bird gets. Do not install perches directly over your birds food and water bowl. Waste will drop and contaminate the food.

When it comes to bird cages, why is size so important?

Cage size is a very crucial element in regards to proper bird care. The tail of your bird should never touch the back or bottom of the cage when sitting on their perch. A very general rule to follow is that the width of the cage should be at least 1-1/2 times as wide as your bird's wingspan. Keep in mind that it is not just your bird(s) inhabiting the cage but you will need a perch and most likely some toys. My personal recommendation is to buy the largest cage you can afford.

How many ladders should I put in the cage?

It depends on the bird type and size. If it is a big parrot like African greys or macaws I would put 2-3 ladders. I also recommend having ladders and perches in the birds stand so the bird will be able to stretch their wings and do some exercise.
