Re: I was not expecting this...or is it normal?

Yes, let him out. The whole "give them several days" is inaccurate; the advice is "move at their pace".

My eclectus came to me with me believing i shouldn't interact with him for several days, based on the internet advice I read at the time. But he clearly wanted to interact from day 1, so I did. And it was the right thing to do.

If your bird is showing signs that hes interested in interacting with you, interact! Every bird will adapt differently and settle at their own pace, just like some humans are more gregarious and easy going in new environments than others.
