So as you can see the photo the baby bird, burrito has one splayed leg. At least i think that’s what it is.
Both of the legs were splayed but one fixed itself once i put more shavings in the breeding box but this one hasn’t.
Should i wait longer and see if it fixes itself or should i take him/her to the shop where i got the parents from to see if they can fix it there?
It’s a specialised bird shop, and the man who owns it is very experienced and cares for the birds he owns and sells.
I know that you can use sponges and other things to try and fix it yourself but i’m not experienced and i have shaky hands so i don’t really want to do that.

Don´t wait. The sooner you make changes the better the result you will get. Definitely go see the guy, ask if he can splint the legs for you.
