Default Laying down while playing?

Hello!

Jimmy has always been a bit of an outspoken bird, and I managed to capture him in one of his weird moments. When I use the laptop he likes to do this:

Does it mean anything? Is he just having fun? I have never seen this behaviour before with any of my previously owned birds, and Kimmy doesn't do it either.

He's very cute

Yes, its normal, he's just playing around. My girl does that when she's playing in a bowl of greens.

However, you should not let them chew on your cords. They can and will chew through the thin plastic casing on the wires, and they could get seriously injured if they do. Be sure that if they are out while you are using your laptop, the cords are covered or are where they can't reach.

Just one of his ways of having fun. Just like all kids have special ways of playing.

Birds are so silly! Caique parrots do that a lot as well

Kinda looked like his one foot was "perching" on the cord and the other foot tried and only got air?

Stunning birds btw. What are their mutations? I love the lack of stripes and wing markings

Thanks for the confirmations that he is just having fun! I just wanted to make sure it wasn't because of anything clinical. It was new behaviour, better to check of course!

@StarlingWings I know they are not supposed to chew on the cables, and I don't let them, it just happened in the moment of the video. On the right is actually a wooden playground they usually play on. There is bark from it all over the table in the video, they are messy little chickens.

@Rainyday Thank you! I'm in love with their colour too. I have no knowledge of mutations though, sorry. I do have some better pictures, maybe that could help:
