Hi

My baby budgie who's six weeks old has begun resting her left foot all the time. She's leaning towards her right side and limping. Don't think she has suffered any injury. Pls help !

Baby Budgie foot problem

Injury is the most likely cause of this. Maybe a fall if her wings are clipped too much. Sometimes if their nails are too long they can get caught in a toy. Bird feet are very sensitive and the slightest injury will cause limping. There are other causes, but usually not seen in such a young bird. You should have her seen by an avian veterinarian.
