Bird with injured foot or leg
by: Tracie

You need to Find an Avian Vet in San Diego. There are plenty of avian vets there, you are fortunate. The leg needs to be examined and x-rayed.

Please have the bird's wings trimmed while you are there. Then either keep the wings trimmed or build a bird safe room before the bird's wings grow out.

Birds that fly free in rooms or homes that have not been bird proofed will likely eventually either get injured from chewing something toxic, getting trapped somewhere or have something fall on them when they land on things.

Did you know many metals in your home are toxic? Did you know there are things in the carpet that are toxic. If your bird chews through the bottom of a chair or couch, the stuffing may be toxic and the bird may climb inside and get trapped or injured. These are just a few of the things that can happen.
