not flying
by: margaret

My budgie has stopped flying around and now prefers to fly to the floor and follow me around. Her wings seem alright, is this just a habit she has formed as we are really good buddies and she loves to be with me. But her feet seem awkward as she walks. Is this arthritis and what can I do about it?
