    Kelly G It's like herding cats!

    Or do they like their feet curled around a dowell (like a canary or finch?

    They'll perch either way, but I think it's a bit easier on them to have their feet flat. Also, in winter, it's important for them to have a flat roost so they can hunker down and cover their feet.
