Parakeet's right foot is unable to move or grasp perch to stand
my parakeet's right foot is not able to grasp perch to stand. He supports himself on the perch with his working left foot and right leg but his right claws are not opening or closing to grasp perch.My bird is approximately 8 yrs old and I love him.
He is still able to fly around and eats and drinks when he is ready and nothing looks to be broken or no bleeding around his right foot. His right foot(claws)are resting off and next to his perch.He is not able to sleep on his swing at night and is slumped down down resting down on his underside and I would hate to know if he is in constant pain with this condition. Today is 9/14 and I noticed this condition app. 4 days ago. I would greatfully appreciate what possibly is going opn in this condition and a course of treatment. Please help me, I don't want to lose him. Thank-you so much.
