baby love bird will not use its leg??
Hi! We just had about 5 weeks ago, a baby love bird hatch. The mommy was taken good care of it. We could hear it peeping inside the breeding box and its craw was full. Then we noticed the momma not feeding as much...when checking on the baby, we found it cold and half dead! It was so hungry.
We were not sure why the parents abandoned it. We got the bird formula from the bird store...he eats so well. but we noticed that his one leg will not bend up undernath the bird, nor can he walk on it. he will use his beak to help him walk. We now wonder if we did the right thing by saving his life. He can get around...just not on 2 feet:( Will he be able to perch and what happened here?
