Budgie losing strength in her feet

by Charmaine

I have noticed that a few days ago my budgie started to fall off her perch, she is struggles to hold on to her perch. There is no sign that she is in pain or sick and she is her happy go lucky self. Her feet almost look like she has arthrites, because the joints on her feet look like when a human has arthrites. She is too young to have this, she is only 6 months old. Any advise will be appreciated.

Thank you very much for your advice, but I don't think it is a stroke, she can still fly very well, except for her feet, she looks healthy. I am going to take her to a vet as soon as I can.

It could be a tumor or it may have had a stroke. Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
