No, this is nowhere normal. If your bird is sitting perches that are too small, it will cause the feet to curl and will cause arthritis.

It appears your bird is still young, and at the very least his feet should be flat if still in a brooder.

This is a case for an Avian Vet in your driving area, and please do not wait any longer to have this looked into because he could end up crippled for life. Birds cannot spend their entire lives in the nasty bottom of a cage.

Let us know what Avian Vet has to say and thanks for writing,
