bad feet

Post by riawebster » Tue Aug 30, 2011 5:34 am

hi. i went to pick up my new 11 week old irn (Mr bojangles) on sunday and there was one left that the breeder said he couldnt sell because he has what he thinks is a club foot so my husband and i being as soft as we are brought him home too and named him ringo, i now think his other foot isnt right either and he cannot get around the cage very well. we have adapted the cage to make things slightly easier for him. his bad foot seems that the toes are all twisted and his good foot isnt the same as mr bojangles feet. has anyone experienced this before?

Sounds like he may need vet attention.
I am wondering if the bird is lacking in calcium? A avian vet would be able to help you better.

Try uploading it to a photo sharing site and posting a link to it.
