Pigeon toed

Posted by Lotg on December 14, 2003

Why are people who walk with their feet turned inwards known as being pigeon toed? I have pigeons and I've watched them and the native pigeons that land on my verandah and they walk with their feet straight ahead. The parrots however walk in a very pigeon toed fashion. So why pick a pigeon, when it would be more correct to say parrot toed?
