    @TikiMyn I guess it's good? I don't know. The vet said it might happen, but not so late in the game.

    :dead: Found it. It was laying right in the middle of the cage, covered in poop. I think he was happy to have it off. I didn't really spend much time looking at it before I chucked the paper out, but it looks like he lost everything from the knee down. No signs of chewing, either. I don't know why it fell off, and I don't think I'm going to dig it out and inspect it further.

    Just seeing the knee joint was enough to put me off my dinner.

    It was roasted chicken legs.

    The best part is he doesn't seem to know or care. :D I love how little it affects him.

    I know, right? He's just never phased by anything. I don't think it's even sore. He's climbing, perching and landing like he's done this his entire life. He even nails his more difficult landings, like the chandelier and his favourite thin plants, even with the sudden loss.

    You'd think it would throw off his balance or something.

    He looks good, eyes bright and alert, feathers all beautiful. They're amazing creatures, arent they?

    I've noticed he still has a faint seam along his neck from where he accidentally plucked himself, but he's leagues better than before. I just wish he'd settle down so I could get a better look at his stump. I want to make sure there's no signs of infection, but he's a quick little bugger and doesn't like stepping up now that he doesn't need me anymore.
    :run:
