standing on one foot

Our conure is acting perfect except for the past two weeks she almost always stands only on her right foot. She climbs all around her cage,plays and is eating ok. The temp. in the house hasn't changed. Should we be worried?

They do this to keep warm, also check her nails one of them may need to clipped.

Bird standing on one foot

Yes, this is cause for concern. Your bird may have something internally causing pain when it puts its foot down. Please Find an Avian Vet that will examine the bird and take an x-ray to rule out the possibility of a tumor or other problem.
