Nick and Noel and the Tightrope

Our birds are a white one named Noel and a blue one named Nick. They love to chew on a rope we have [we think it feels good on their beaks.] Once I held it out to Nick and he got on it! Then a few days later I got a great idea. I tied the rope to both ends of their cage. They pulled on it and bit at it. Then they got brave enough to climb on it! Noel started to peck at the knot. She undid it!!! Then I tied it back on and they pecked at it again...
