    Swing on the ceiling

    My tiel Waiata is checking out the bird swing on the ceiling.
    Only problem is, it is hanging OVER MY BED,
    so I have to be careful about "surprises" from above...

    That's pretty cool. Looks like she's enjoying it!

    Re: Swing on the ceiling

    yeah, it DOES rip the paint of the walls.

    But, honestly, bluetac is able to hold up 100g...
    what kind of fat tiels do you have?
    They weigh around 100g.
    Till now, my swing holds...

    And maybe it is the air moisture here, the air here
    is saturated....

    ^ big boned!

    I doubt I'd be able to get blutac to hold up the swing by itself, let alone the addition of two teils (one big boned!)

    cool swing. What type of branch is it?

    ÷It is not only fine feathers that make up fine birds-Aesop(620-560
    ÷Even small birds are a BIG responsibility.

    Oh, the type of branch...
    I think it is birch.

    Great idea and she sure looks happy up there.

    I think I would be watching out for "surprises" too, especially from angle the camera took the pictures, looks like a danger zone to me

    That's sign #1 that you're trying to actively hide your 'teils are Fat
