Crawling bird

by Lizzie Georgi

My newly bought parakeet (baby, 6 weeks)
was fine wen we got him, he was climbing but kept falling.
So, he fell once and started limping and not walking normal. We got someone to check his leg, and they said he was fine. Now he limps around and only leans on one side. Sometimes he'll climb a little and wont move, its been like this for a day. What could be wrong?

Dr B can not tell you what is wrong without examining your bird. Please take your bird to an avian vet for an examination so your bird will get some help.

Let us know what the vet tells you and how it goes with the treatment.
