I know he's not a parrot but... this is just too cool!!

"Piwi the Kiwi is hitting the treadmill not to lose weight but to restore his leg strength after breaking his legs in two separate accidents. This four-year-old bird is only half the size of a normal kiwi his age, so he had a slim chance of surviving the accidents.

Luckily, wildlife experts found Piwi and transported him to a wildlife park to mend his broken leg. Shortly after arriving at the park, Piwi broke his other leg. The vets decided to use a treadmill to help with Piwi’s recovery.


At first, Piwi wasn’t too thrilled to be on the treadmill, but the vets have said that his workout has drastically improved his muscle tone, and he has a great chance of surviving out in the wild again."
