    I can't imagine crafting one that would be functional, and personally don't know that one for aesthetics wouldn't lower the birds quality of life (pecking, comfort, etc) - I guess you could make something that would aid in balance if that's an issue - perching and such, but I also think the bird would likely work that out on its own over time...

    Interesting enough either way...
