Hi everyone,

i have pair of cinnamons who have hatched a clutch of 7.
one of the babies has what i guess you can describe as a "lazy eye", has anyone seen this before?
the eye does not appear to be injured, it just looks half to three quarters the size of his other eye, it doesn't bother him at all.
I have never seen this before and wonder if anyone has an opinion.

We have a king, born with a "lazy eye" couple seasons ago
W have kept hm and is now a the hose parrot.
The eye has now closed over
He fly arod the room in 1 direction, onw has to be careful not to suprise him from his blind side.
Otherwise a near normal bird

The only down side..maybe?? is he doesnt like to loose line of sight of his cage ...somehow I think he uses that as his reference piont.
He sleeps in the cage doorway (its never closed) feed on a stand out in the lounge, never in the cage...water and bath are the only this in his cage.

My conclusion with "Bob" is a one eyed parrot makes a great house pet.
