Topic branches

Your birds spend much of their lives sitting on or nibbling on branches.

  • But what branches can you use for your birds?
  • What should you pay attention to?

In this post, I thought I would introduce you to a few types of branches that you can use for your bird keeping and tell you what to look for.


  1. Please take only fresh branches from the tree or shrub and not from the ground.
  2. Clean the branches with water before use. (Please do not use detergents!)
  3. Remove pointed branches or thorns so birds do not injure themselves.
  4. If you are not sure whether the branches you have found are unsuitable or even poisonous for your birds, you should rather not offer them.

Suitable branches:

  • Apfelbaumast
  • Maple branch1except: red maple and sycamore maple (note: Welli@Home)
  • Mountain ash branch
  • Hazelnut branch
  • Hornbeam branch
  • Cherry Branch
  • Corkscrew Hazel
  • Corkscrew Willow
  • Hawthorn branch

I really hope that I could help you a little bit with this post.
