    awww... Now when suprised, buttons jump straight up, I understand.. If they have chicks do they still freak out like that? Or are they more protective?

    I don't have a big problem with that in my stock I do get one from time to time that likes to pop its head into stuff. She acted like a mother hen with the chicks and would go after my fingers if I messed to much the male had a fit and would go right after me it was to funny he is just the sweetest guy so to have him attack floored me. After the chicks where removed he went right back to sweet.

    Mine also don't do the popping thing much, they seem to 'grow' out of it. Once they get used to their surroundings they calm down. Mine do it once in a while, when they get really spooked, like when I'm cleaning their cages out, they don't like that [​IMG]

    My silly male wacks his head all the time on the aviary shelf. The girls don't. I think he just a crazy, twisted bird anyways.

    I am so jealous of your colours.
