Since I did the last one (the mobile stand) they have had a long time to stop fighting over food, and now I gave up. I needed another playstand to put the second bowl on.
It was time to redo the net, and for some weeks ago I found some beautiful branches (that I was planning to build a tree candle light with) that was badly infected by bugs. So the net went down, and it's now replace with this new playstand.
As I love nature and all things that can happen to a tree in a natural way I think the branches are so beautiful.
This is also my first unbarked stand, and my girls first reaction to it is priceless. :D I did set it up when they where sleeping...

To make sure I kill all bugs I have to unbarked it. I wasn't so smart as John @JLcribber is ( Pictures - How do I clean and manicure tree branches for perches? | Avian Avenue Parrot Forum ) and was using a knife and a steel wire brush. (but I consider it good training :D )

A soon as I find more bug infected branches I will continue building (I want it bigger) and I will also redo the mobile playstand when I found the right kind of branches. :)

That is beautiful - love the white rope on it also. And I see a really unique stainless steel toy also - did you make that?

The branches don’t need to be bug infested. You can use healthy limbs too. :lol:

They look fabulous.

I guess sharing isn't caring for those two:rofl: That's a really nice setup you have there and your place is really nice too. Couple of happy girls now who can eat and play in peace when they don't want to hang out together.

Thank you! ♥♥♥
Very nice bird play and food stand! I just have to ask......... Is there anything you can not do?? Such DIY talent!!!!
Thank you! ♥♥♥ But you made me blush. Their is a lot of things I can't do. But I also loves a lot of things, and if I do I learn how to do it. I hate being depended on someone else when I can learn and do it myself.
Awesome stand!
Thank you! ♥♥♥
Oh Wow! I love the stand Anette! It looks sooo good! I´m sure that Eliy and Akela will love it!! ❤
Thank you! ♥♥♥ Yes they love it already. :)
That is beautiful - love the white rope on it also. And I see a really unique stainless steel toy also - did you make that?
Thank you! ♥♥♥ Yes, I also did the SS toy. :) I'm creating some new SS toys at the moment, but I took a break because I thought this was more important. I hate to see them fight, and I also worry that I someday isn't fast enough to split them up, and that they hurt each other bad.
At the moment this seems to be working, so let's hope for that. :)
Oh that's fabulous! Lucky birdies!

And now it's going to be bigger. I found a new branch that is ready and will be attached tomorrow. :)
What a huge play area for them. Very nice!

Thank you! ♥♥♥
But it's great to have a reason for unbarking them. :D
That is wonderful! Great job!!!
Thank you! ♥♥♥

Yes but the designs they make on them are soooo cool! :heart:
Thank you! ♥♥♥
Yes to that! :) I just love the way they look, almost like they where engraved/carved professional.
I went to the forest today and found all the branches I need to redo the mobile playstand.
I found two that was really curved that I look forward to work with. :)
And normally I always let them chew of the bark.

Thank you! ♥♥♥ Yes, it was a joy this morning to see them eat without any fighting.
I'm so happy that I did priority this. :)
Wow!:heart: That’s such an awesome play area :highfive: I’m in awe!:dance5:
Thank you! ♥♥♥
It sounds terrible when I'm saying this, but I like that playstand. I know It's not mine and that I made it for my girls, but I really like the way those branches look. :)

I found some more beautiful branches and I have now upgraded it and is at the moment satisfied.
But the most important is that they are satisfied. :) IMG_20200324_212335.jpg
