Trouble's BFF is a Dominique. She will also perch on my hand/arm, but when she does, I feel like I'm holding a giant hawk. Thankfully she doesn't "jump" onto my arm. Bigger birds don't seem to have the agility. That's a very good thing because most of our birds are Orpingtons.
Can you imagine having this big girl land on your arm?
LOL! It was very humbling -- I thought I was pretty strong! I think you are right that it's an agility issue, though, in addition to pure weight.
