Re: By special request- Kiwi's big feet

Yup, those are the feet of the great Southern Blue Front. Family members of Yellow-Winged Amazon Species. "These boots (feet) are made for walking (climbing)."

Re: By special request- Kiwi's big feet


I hope to see liots of big feets!!! Unless that's weird, then I'll only admit to mild curiosity!

Re: By special request- Kiwi's big feet

"Xanthopteryx gigantofooticus", still giggling at the classification. I think by comparison Bingo's feet may be average size for a Zon, I'll try to get a close up. My CAG has huge feet. I agree with leaving the talons long for climbing, foraging, etc.....

Re: By special request- Kiwi's big feet

Jim and Scott- since you both have blue fronts, does Amy or Gonzo have extra large feet or more normal feet for zons?

My moms DYH is a good 100 grams heavier than Kiwi as she has much smaller feet. Watching the 2 of them walk on the floor, you can see he struggles with them when flat vs climbing on a branch.

I think Amy and Kiwi could be brothers.

Re: By special request- Kiwi's big feet

My Sam has really big feet also. When he was a baby, his feet looked like they were glued on from another bird. They just didn't fit his body. Now, at almost 36, they kind of fit, but are still on the big side. He is a big bird, but his feet always kept up with him! He is a Blue Front.

Re: By special request- Kiwi's big feet

Wings up for big footed blue fronts! If everyone else are like Kiwi, they are extremely prideful about their big dinosaur feet. Makes him feel like a real velociraptor and/or tiny tyranosaur

By special request- Kiwi's big feet

So Kevinís feet are so big when he puts one foot up, it canít be hidden in his feathers.

I, too, allow his claws to be a bit longer for climbing as Kevinís flying was somehow impaired before he came to me. He can flutter from place to place but flying not so much.
