Parrot foot problem
I have a 30 yr old red-headed amazon. A few months ago he started not standing on one foot, not sure if he injured it (has a very large cage). I switched from a round to flat perch so he could balance better. Then switched back to round. Now both feet are affected and he cant grip with either foot. The feet are frozen with each toe straight out. He's learned to balance with the ball of his feet. But he cant hold seeds, food or peanuts. Just holds them in his beak until he drops it. I have to grab his body to get him out of his cage. His droppings have been waterier. He only likes seeds and apples ( a problem) very picky. I have been putting cherry juice concentrate in his water, in case he has gout. Today he is very tired keeps closing his eyes and leans way over (lower than perch) to try and sleep. Its hard for him to balance. Not sure if his wings are affected but he uses them to balance and flops around when he walks on the floor. Any ideas/recommendations?
