    Foot talking cockatiel

    My 8 month old cockatiel Finnigan will stand on one foot and raise the other foot almost like he is using the foot to gesture while he talks, but if he sees the raised foot while he's talking he will stop and bite the foot almost like the foot got in the way of his speech. It's so funny to watch, I am just wondering if anyone has a tiel that does this too? Is it a normal tiel behavior or just an adorable thing my guy does?

    Finnegan sounds like one funny and very unique bird. I have never seen this before but boy I sure would love to see it!! What a strange way to talk. I have heard of birds falling in love with there feet or legs before but never talking to them. Finnegans foot talking just made me love him and I don't even know him!

    He is such a funny boy. He is just starting to talk pretty good. He says "I love you, pretty bird, kisses and Finnigan's a pretty bird" He started the foot talking a month or so ago, it's so hilarious. I have it on video I will have to post it.

    Wow!! Finnegan is awesome. Years ago, I saw a cockatiel at a breeders doing that foot talking. It is soooooooo cute. I have had several cockatiels in my life, but none ever tried that. You have one happy snd talented Finnegan!!!!! Congrats!!!!

    Mine does the very same thing! It is so funny! He does it to both feet! Sometimes he makes some angry noises at it, other times he makes kissing noise, just like when I kiss him.
