    Exclamation Cockatiel talking to his foot!

    Hello,

    I am new to the forum and am looking for some advice. Our 9month old cockatiel Jasper has an unusual habbit. He will stand on one leg (whilst awake) and put his foot to hishead and talk to it. no preference on foot.

    I wanted to know if this is normal or an indication of something - should we take him to the vet?

    Thanks in advance.

    Holly

    I've seen several videos on teils that do that. Just a cute quirky trait I think. You should post us up a video of it!

    Cockatiels are like potatoe chips....it's hard to have just one!

    I'd say let us know (and the vet) when his foot starts talking back to him.

    Mine does that a lot. Looks like he's holding an invisible microphone when he's singing. It seems to always be his left foot, though.
