Hi guys, just a little advise needed, i bought a 6month old indian ringneck parakeet and i have noticed that she is missing 2 claws from each foot. i was wondering if this is due to inbreeding? and if in the future we decide to breed, would it effect the health of the chicks?
sorry about replying late, I have several birds missing a claw or even some miss a toe, mainly it's due to fighting with other birds,, I don't think your case is due to some genetic circumstance. Some birds may have some more difficulty when mating, but otherwise it should be ok.
Just my 2 cents _________________ AD ASTRA PER ASPERA
