New Java tree for the birds :)

So far none of the fids would use it. I had to pick up the grey and plop her on tree to do a little bit of modeling

I like Java trees, they are beautiful.
Give your fids a little more time and they will also find out.

Looks great! Does she not find it slippy? I ended up not using my java branches cause my birds found them hard to hold on to I have seen many people using vet wrap in a few places on them to help them grip on to it

Greys got big feet so she's fine, she can even hang off the branches and climb down it. You must have seen Rob Howes grey hanging upside down, gripping on with just one foot on his Java haven't you? .

All the rest of the flock have learnt to balance on the Java branches quite well so there is no need for me to vet wrap it.

Awesome, looks like a great addition to your bird room! Those things can be expensive!

That's good then For some reason none of my birds can get the hang of it It's always put me off getting a java stand. I wanted one for my aviaries (a large one)

Looks great such a nice looking bird room! I have a coffee wood tree and too big compared to what I thought it would be. But with some wraps for my linnies to grip on and a grass mat platform I made it's perfect. You how birds are anything can be suspicious looking. Same with my cats they get FLAT when they see something new or out of place even my a sock.

That looks really nice! All the branches seem to be going in a good direction as well.
