silver cup birdcages

You may remember these little bird cages I made from old silver egg cups and an old cup or trophy. I took them to the market where they got lots of attention but everyone kept asking where the birds were.
Wayne explained to people that we’d run into a hitch with our breeding program, in our efforts to breed birds small enough for the cages. I don’t think anyone believed him.

Here are the cups as they were before:
And here they are now, with teeny tiny little birds in them.  The birds are less than an inch long (and that includes the tail) so they fit perfectly in the cages, on the little swings.
Really cute.
I have 4 more silver cups waiting for their own cage and a few more birdies waiting for a home.
