If you have a printed nest please show it off! I need some inspiration for new designs because I've already designed at least 10. I'd like to see how you let them drink as well.
Maybe you made a hybrid with some plaster or added some sand? I'm excited to see your creations! Thanks in advance!  (y)

Hey! I have a printed nest in with you screw a testtube vertically into a hole through the plexiglass. It has a cover that slides into grooves, and a printed thin cover, almost like mesh.

(cover is detachable)
