One legged bird laying down?
I just adopted two handicapped birds. I have had them for 9 days now. Harper has one leg and Tennessee can not grip well with her two feet.
Harper hops around on her one foot mostly and last night she was laying down. She was alert and eating, but even when I put my hand near her she would squawk, but she wouldn't get up. I did pick her up to inspect her body and to my knowledge she isn't pussing from her amputation scar or swelling.
She was "mad" and talkative when I held her and she tried to scoot away a little, but she still didn't get up and move normally. Is this normal and is she resting her leg and she just hasn't done this around me yet? Or do you think something is wrong? Thank you!
