That really does sound like you had a lot of fun!!! It's cool you are both into the birds and interact with them.
The other night I tried to get Chirp (my calm boy who usually does what I want) to perch on hubby's finger. I was thinking he probably would, he is usually up for most things and curious. Nothing doing! Hubby really doesn't interact with either bird except to talk to them, but he's never held them or anything, but I was still surpirsed that Chirp wouldn't even try to perch on hubby's finger! No way no how! He's a momma's boy for sure.
Update on Pisqueak...she still doesn't like me.
Oh well, I love her just the same as if she did.
