Any one else's conure do this?

my honeybear loves to hang on the top of her cage with her beak agianst the bars one foot agianst it her wings lightly fluttering. then when she hangs on the side of her cage when she's in it she'l lh old her beak agianst the cage and move her feet away from the cage fluttering her wings a bit.

any one else's conure or parrot does that? I know the hanging upside down is a normal thing that most birds do but the other parts i'm curiouse on.

I have noticed mine doing that I know i need to get honey more toys, she only has her swing and babble ball and feet to play with but right now I dont have any money to do so, i'll have to ask my gran and mom if I can grab a few toys for her next month. when we have the cash cause I had to ask gran if I were to get my one game next month when it comes out and I'll prolly sneek honey a few good toys.

Awes, I'm still working on gaining honey's trust, she trusts me enough to do step up with her when shes on the side of her cage and stuff. But, she still hasnt gained my trust to pet her while she's out yet, and or when she's in her cage yet, but, the coming out and on to me i'm proud of though so far. I'm slowly gaining her trust.

One of my Alexandrines, Big Bird did a trick like that. He would grab onto a bar with his beak and then take his feet off the side and hang, but he would pull his body back as well. We called it 'Look Ma No Hands'. We made it into a trick, at first with voice and hand signals and then just with the hand signal. When he did it correctly I would give him a treat so he was always doing it just to get the treat.
