Thank you Patty. I think so too. I stare at them and go into squee overload every time. Yes, they do get excited. Soon as that door opens, they rocket out of there and start beeping, hopping, flying, mating and perching where they shouldn't. Luckily as dusk approaches they go into their cage to sleep. It's a big help to me so that I don't have to try and grab them in the dark to put them in. How I do that is I remember where they are sitting, shut out the light, let my eyes adjust and then pick one up. Once in my hand I turn the light on and kiss his or her's head and cheeks and put in the cage, shut the door and go for the next. They are so teeny and soft and warm. That is why I am always going on about other's birds and being able to handle them. Other than having to put mine up occasionally, I can't handle mine.
They love their freedom and enjoy the time they spend outside the cage. I bet there is some days that you hope they won't go back in their cage so you get to hold and kiss them. When you retire and get your farm your going to have a lot of spoiled birds and animals.
