Definitions of words used by pet bird enthusiasts with the pet bird slant.

A "foot toy." Get it? This black-headed caique loves puns.

Foot toy: (noun) A type of small toy that a parrot can pick up with one foot (claw) and hold while chewing on it with its beak. Foot toys are popular with medium to large parrots that like to hold up objects with one foot. (Smaller birds, such as cockatiels and budgies, rarely to never use a foot to hold onto something.)

Check out Rocky, an umbrella cockatoo, enjoying a foot toy (and parts of a larger toy) in this user video.
