Budgie with one splay leg
by: The Avian Vet

Splay leg is sometimes genetic, sometimes nutritional, sometimes a combination of these causes and can also be caused by improper bedding in the nest box. You should be using Dri-Dek, which can prevent splay leg

If one leg is normal your baby can live a normal life and adapt to its handicap. You should have him examined by an avian veterinarian.
