    @Zara suggested I do this thread so here. Lemon Jade (goes by LJ) is a estimated 8-9 year old male budgie. Recently he started having issues with his feet (pressure sores and mild bumble foot), the sores have since clear up but I am in prevention mode now. I believe the root of his issues is...

    Helping Taco build up strength in his feet?

    Presumably because he spent over a decade with only a single (cockatiel-sized, dowel) perch in his cage, which forced his toes to constantly overlap, Taco's grip in his feet is about as powerful as the average marshmallow. Though he does okay when it comes to traversing his cage and getting...

    hello! So lately (since yesterday) I have noticed my 5 month old sun conure Skylar’s one foot is red. It looks kind of irritated but I don’t know. He spends a lot of time on the sides of his cage. I believe this is because he is a baby and doesn’t quite grip the perch well yet. Anyway I was...

    Pictures Weird feet

    It took me a while to notice that Tango's feet don't match. Then it was the vet who said she also doesn't have claws at the back. Has anyone got any tiels who are similar? And why do you think Tango has this (unfortunately I think it might be down to inbreeding :sad14:)
