dunno about tricks, but junior's pretty clever when it comes to food. she walks into the kitchen and paces near the fridge and near the sink (where we prep her food), and will even try to "climb" the cabinet there, hooking her front legs onto the molding at the bottom. if we're hand feeding her and the piece of food gets dangerously tiny, if you hold it over her head she'll obligingly open her mouth upwards like a baby bird so you can drop it in!

not a redfoot, but here's a psychologist i read about a while back that taught a box turtle to come, stop, shake, and roll over:
