My last baby came out of the nest on friday & it could not climb the wire so l picked him up to see why and to my shock he has only 1 leg must of been born like this?
l would like to know if l can put him into another cage with smaller wire would he be able to climb as he does try 1st thing in the morning holds on for dear life then falls after afew minutes or so then just sits on the floor he has been eating but not drinking dad doesn't go near the chick only to get a feed for himself.
Will this little fella survive as he seem healthy.
Can't stand on a perch so was think about putting in some thick perchs that are a bit flat for him to stand on and maybe a shelf or something for him to get him off the floor.
Yes it might sound weird but this little fella is a fighter and l would love to make his life a bit more easier for him.
When one keeps birds one must accept that contions diet should match nature as much as possible....
This also applies to breeding
Weak /defective birds dont survive in nature. _________________ My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
