Schnitzel surprised me. One minute he's on the bottom of the cage and the next he hopped up on his rope perch like it was nothing. He stopped in the middle sitting there looking very proud of himself then gave himself a thorough preening. After that he climbed to the top where he discovered a new toy. He had great fun "fighting" that toy, beating it with his beak, yelling at it, and chewing on it. When he decided he won he preened some more and gave his wings a good work out, he sounds like a little helicopter flapping those wings. His first flight is going to be any second now, I just know it. Now he's taking a little nap at the top of his rope perch.
