Attaching boings/orbits to the ceiling?

Guys, I was wondering if anybody could help me?

I've bought some orbits and various sized boings to hang up in both of the new bird rooms however I have never done this before... For those who hang stuff up (I will get cargo nets too when I can), what fixtures/fittings do you use to attach them to the ceiling? Me and Jack thought of drilling in holes, putting one of those plugs in and using some big stainless steel hooks. Would that work okay? Or does anybody else have some suggestions?

Thanks!

Try finding the stud and screw directly into a stud... Also thread your chain thru PVC pipe to keep birds from climbing the chain and chewing the ceiling. If there is no stud... I'm not sure I would use those plugs but you could look at toggle bolts.

We always us the big s.s. eye bolts and hooks. Drill right into the stud. Hang and you are done.

You can also screw in some plant hooks.
