I'm not a vet and I'm not an expert on adhesives, but I have a feeling that a parrot would like to chew on duct tape if it could, and would ingest it and the adhesive which could be toxic or harmful.

I have to say that I do NOT like PVC for parrots. It's completely indigestible and can cause crop impaction as well as an occlusion further down the digestive tract.

I absolutely agree with Pajarita on this one.

No only the bottom is made out of pvc pipes. The actual perch itself is covered with vet bandage.
