instead of my other birds shuffling sideways walking, dally has to be different. she walks with one foot in front of the other!

she also eats with her feet sometimes, very well too! the eating pictures are a few months old, but theyre what i got right now to show :D















and she hates my fiance's feet!

Cute!
It sounds as if she walks similarly to a linnie.

I guess she hasn't read the books about cockatiels.

i do wonder if these are learned behaviours where she picked them up... pretty sure these would be genetic

Odds are they are something she learned, if it's different from most cockatiels. Moose just shuffles, but if he's in a hurry to get somewhere he will walk one foot in front of another. He doesn't use his feet to hold food, though

shes never been around other birds who've done it. the breeder i got her from also breeds lovies, plets, finches, canaries, doves, and budgies.

its cute though.

This is the first time I've ever seen a Cockatiel holding food with its foot, very unique and interesting :)
