Weak legs - physical therapy?
I have a young Sun Conure. He had gotten a bacterial infection in early December of 2012. He lived after many months of being in a plastic bin, hand feedings 3x's per day for 90 days, and medicines. He has been cleared of the infection by the vet. He is finally eating again on his own, but we are still dealing with one major problem - weakness in the legs.
He went through a VERY tramatic sickness, including numerous seizures that we thought for sure would take his life. I feel (and you may tell me if you think I'm incorrect) that with that major trama, it really did a lot of damage to his legs (also being "bed-ridden" for months too).
Just this past weekend, I put a perch in the bin thinking maybe he can use it at his leisure and not get hurt like he might if he were in a cage and slipped. I noticed that his legs are really worn out now towards the end of the day....obviously because he's using the perch.
Is this an acceptable thing to do for him? Is there a chance he can regain strength and eventually become a normal Conure able to be in his cage all day again?
