Conure leg hurt from fall
I have a conure which is approx. 22 years old. He fell three days ago in flight . That night he seemed fine I picked him up he went on my hand using both feet in curl . Next evening when I let him out he didn't fly seemed to be favoring his leg. Next morning his leg wasn't working well. Then during the later morning it seemed to go in a straight fixed position no motion to his foot.
I took him out of the cage and made him sick bed . Took him to the vet today and he has no fractures or tumors. Vet doesn't know what the problem is . Told us to wait a few days incase it is inflammation. He is eating and drinking but seems a lot quieter he is a very verbal bird. Said then we could take him to a bird specialist . I know that could be very very costly and given his age what they could put him through could kill him. Any thing I could do to help my bird out. They did do x rays.
