Little Wire Bird Nests Use 24 gauge wire, (brass, silver tone or sterling silver) and little cultured pearls or pearly-looking beads. Thread the beads onto the wire. Turn, bend the wire around the beads threading back through itself here and there. The more kinks the better. You can wrap bands of wire tightly around gathered rings of the nests for additional reinforcement - a good idea when making nests for jewelry.
I have 1 Australorp, 2 black sex links, 3 brown leghorns (look like Rhode Island reds- maybe they're the same?), 2 Plymouth Rocks. I had 2 Americaunas, but one mysteriously disappeared and the other ended up to be a Roo that was mean and aggressive. He's no longer with us. Lol
