Francois is standing on one leg only today. I don’t know of any injuries. He was in his cage for the last two days (usually he is out every morning) because we had too much going on to make sure all doors would stay closed. Is this an urgent issue? He’s flying normally, landing ok. A0BCF72A-7227-479B-BF70-44AD614190A4.jpeg E408E282-0EE0-4466-85D3-109577D1E642.jpeg

just spoke to our avian vet and she said to just monitor for a few days as long as there is no visible redness nor swelling and he’s eating. I think he may have pulled a string from his partial cage cover —perhaps hurt his leg that way? I’ll keep watching to see.

No change. Francois is flying and eating but still only standing on his right leg. I saw a dark red tiny round bump on one toe of his injured leg. Any thoughts on what I can do to help him heal? Thank you.
