My Double Yellow Head Parrot one day was out of his cage and he or her was playing with another amazon Parrot I have they are in separate cages but I let them go and they play with each other , they have been together for 25 years. But one day we saw the yellow double head in the floor. and we took him to the avian dr. because his right foot was like hanging around and we though it was broken.

The Dr. Said no it doesnt seem to be broken and then he gave me inflammatory medication and which in fact it was difficult to give to him and the foot it still the same. he eats and hang all over his cage and talks like nothing. its been like 2 months and he is the same and nothing he has not gotten better he seems to get tire. I feel really bad but this Dr. I took him to is very expensive and at this moment my budget is real bad just for him to look at him and touch his feet and said its not broken cost $300.

My question is do you thing he is okay can a bird live with one leg.

Lilly,

I do hope you've taken your bird to an Avian Vet and not to any dog and cat's vet; they know not a thing about little birds and will do more harm than good. What cost $300? Did he x-rayed your bird's foot? Anyway if you didn't take your bird to an Avian Vet, please find one and do so immediately before he/she lose a foot. I'm sure that your poor bird is very uncomfortable and in a lot of pain. I do hope that your bird gets well soon, my prayers are with you both; take care and God bless.
