Right or left footed?

Sponsored Links
Let's see the statistics! Is your parrot left or right footed? Parrots can and will use both feet, but they clearly have a dominant foot. Penny is so right footed she has never picked up anything with her left. I guess for fun I'll add to the poll for our humans to see if you are right or left handed, then we can see if the numbers play out.

Re: Right or left footed?

The man here is left (out), all the girls are (always) right


(sorry I could not resist)


I've read that 80% of the parrots are lefties, so I am curious what this test will show..

Re: Right or left footed?

I've read in books parrots are much more often left "handed". And Clark is no different he always eats with his left foot.

NOT THAT THERES ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT!!!!

Do you think that birds in a group influence each other? That would be interesting...Like, lets say a bird's flock has a lot of left-footers, I wonder if would a right-footed bird be swayed the other direction in order to make interactions easier? Or....could being a lefty have advantages..? lol

Re: Right or left footed?

I live in the land of sea shells, all that I have collected at least a hundred are left footed, I only have one and it's a monster ( biggest in my collection) that is right footed....

Re: Right or left footed?

I am not sure if all my large Fids are left footed but I am sure Bella is.
Merlin is left footed.
Despite having Bingo for 30+ years I am not sure what foot he prefers haven't paid attention.

Some of my Cockatiels hold food in there foot but they are very bad at it. Most of the time they drop the food item quickly.
