Baby green cheek conure not standing.

Hi, I have a baby green cheek conure who is 17 days old now. I have noticed that ever since it was hatched, its legs have been totally spread out like it's doing the splits. There are 2 other babies whose legs are fine and are standing properly. The one that is 17 days old is the eldest and I notice that he is always kicking them around and I am worried that there may be a problem.

Splay legs

Your bird needs to see an avian vet in person, Dr B can not help your bird over the Internet. An avian vet will examine your bird to determine if this is splay leg and will advise you on the best course of action depending on the health of your bird.
