Gracie is the biggest bird and super independent, but she'll fall right alseep if you pick her up and pet her. Here's Gracie and me, sleeping:

Bertha knows she can fly out of the cage, but she'll only do it if I'm standing there to hold her. Other times, if she wants out, she'll lock eyes with you and do this little dance thing and if you put your hand down, she'll step up onto it. We eat breakfast together sometimes.

Ughhh, I miss having birds. I had finches when I was a kid, and my best friend had a cockatiel. They're a lot to deal with, but just delightful. I'm actually living next door to some chickens now, which scratches that birdy itch for the moment.
