    So my fiance and I are finally learning about the wonders of caulking a bird. We haven't quite figured out the best methods yet though. I heard that Ted Weyenberg has a great syringe, but I haven't heard back from him. What else would you all recommend? Please and thank you!

    For the head I use a 3cc syringe with a 3 inch piece of aquarium tubing hot glued to the syringe tip. Don't force it too much or the tube will come off. I go in through the eye with it. Works great though. I've also put a larger plastic tube over a caulking tube tip. You can anchor it by running a heavy T pin through the plastic tube and caulk tube.

    An oral irrigator works great. ten cc with curved tip. Apply through the eye ring.

    For a syringe and to get in the wings easier I've taken a syringe and glued a piece of tubing to the end about 3's" long. I use the syringe with the curved tip to go thru the eye's on the head.
