Exactly they love to play on their back. They're great! If your in a warmer climate you could also get an aviator harness to take him/her outside

Awww, Okay! Does anybody know if heated perches are necessary?
I know you need a lot of different types of perches with different diameters.

I do not have heated perches for any of my birds... I have rope, cement, and wooden perches in my cages. The one I love the most is my wacky wood perch in my budgies cage. It is a spiral and twists and turns with every movement from a bird , making them hang on and adjust just as they would in a tree blowing in the wind... This is what I have ....
... it hangs horizontally across the cage.. My budgies really love it and it is good for their legs and feet.

I just didn't want his feet to get cold. My apartment mates keep it at like 65ish degrees F. so in the winter time I didn't know it was too cold. I can't wait to go toy
