How to Build a Canary Bridge
Building a small wooden bridge to go in a bird cage is very quick and easy, and your canary will love resting and playing on it and it's also suitable for budgies. Save yourself some money on buying a bird bridge from the pet store by making your own!
Cut off the thick branches of a native tree.For a small cage cut off 3 to 5 50cm branches.
Using secateurs, cut off a 10cm twig from the branch.
Get someone to help you cut more twigs.The 10cm twig you cut off on step 2 will help you measure how much of the branch you have to cut off. Get someone to hold the twig to the branch while you cut up the pieces. Cut about 16-20 twigs for a small cage.
Use a cordless screwdriver to drill a hole on each end of the twig.The hole should be 2cm away from the ends of the twig.
Line all the twigs up, placing the smallest in the middle and the biggest on the outside of the line.Take a look at the bridge and if you feel like it isn't big enough for your cage, cut up some more 10cm twigs.
Thread some hemp string through the right hole of the twig.Do this to all twigs so they're all joined.
Cut off the end of the string.Make sure you leave enough string so you can be able to tie it to the cage.
Repeat the threading process on the left hole on the twigs.
Tie the bridge in the bird cage.The bird will need at least a day to get use to the bridge and then it will surely explore and play on it.
Things You'll Need
- Leave the bark on the twigs so the bird can have fun pecking at it.
- Put either tape or wire on the end of the string to help you thread it through the twig.
- If the string won't go through the twig then drill it again to get all the pulp out.
