Conure won't put weight on leg

My sun conure has recently stopped putting weight on her one leg. She limps when walking. I'm not sure what happened. Should I wait a few days to see how she's feeling or take her to a vet asap?

Limping conure
by: Tracie

I would take the bird right away, because you don't know why the bird is limping. It could be your bird has a tumor, and has had it for some time, and just now the bird is showing outward symptoms.

It could be any number of things, and it could actually get well on it's own too, but because you don't know what it is, it could be something that will get much worse if you wait.

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.
