Foot problem
by: D Singh

Hello Leanne,
You should take your bird to an Avian Vet ASAP, only he can tell you what's the problem. Maybe your bird has gotten a slight stroke, if so he would be able to eat and drink but he would've trouble standing and walking. God forbid, if he has a stroke and it's not slight but critical, that will be terrible so act quickly.
Poor little baby, Leanne, is he eating? if not, look to see if his lower beak is twisted. See if he's eating and drinking, but please take him to the vet immediately. I do know how you're feeling at this moment and my heart goes out to you. Our pets can't tell us how they feel when they are sick so we all have to monitor them. Any signs of illness we should take them to Avian Vets without any delay.
I hope that he gets well soon and is nothing too serious, take care Leanne and God bless.

This is something that can only be diagnosed in person. 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.
