as a newbie tiel friend (I was going to say owner, but I prefer friend) I was thinking back to my years in England when I had Oscar a much missed African Grey. He used his feet to hold his food & other things, but so far, Monty - only 9 weeks old) isn't doing this. Do tiels use their feet to hold, or just to stand on? Seems like a silly question, but I'm curious.
I'm so happy today cos, apart from being my birthday I coaxed Monty off a stick & onto my finger to eat his spinach He's learning pretty quickly & each day brings something new with my little darling.
