B/G Macaw deformed foot
I have a local breeder that wants to sell me a BG Macaw approx. 12 weeks old. The bird was born with 3 front toes on the right foot and only 1 in the back. Lady said she just noticed that the bird was not stepping right and that is how she noticed it.
Will this bird have a problem as it gets older supporting its weight with only 1 back toe on one foot, the other foot is normal? I don't know if I should purchase the bird or wait until a healthy one comes along. Anyone ever have this happen? I just don't know what to expect in the long term. It currently has a cast on it's foot but it comes off next week and was only on for 2 weeks, don't think that will do much. It is clearly 3 toes in the front. Advice please!!
