The human play gym

Anyone else's bird think you are their personal play gym? When I get home I let Sammie out of her cage and put her on my shoulder while I go about doing little chores.

Anyway, while I'm doing whatever needs to be done Sammie is running up and down my body, swinging from from my shirt, down my arm, running back up, pulling on my hair. All the while I'm walking around and she might be hanging upside down by one foot. Doesn't seem to phase her one bit. It cracks me up.

I'm happy for you that she is so cute and trusting!
All pet birds should discover this kind of playing gym.

Yup, my two love to hang off of me, LOL. As far as they are concerned, I am the transportation, play and chew toy, the feeder, and scratch post, haha.
