Bruce It's probably just a freak of nature and not anything you or the parents did. Most deformed babies do not live due to other internal problems but some can live a long and healthy life.

Hi Bruce I have to ask If this is your first time breeding this pair? Have they been breeding for someone else? I have heard of this as a matter of fact I have a breeding pair of African Greys that will bite off toe's if I don't pull them from the nest as soon as they hatch. Some birds just make better parents then others. I think the next time your pair have eggs you should pull them a day or two after they hatch and start handfeeding them.
