Our baby bird (now around 6 weeks old) was put in her own cage with her sister when she turned 4 or 5 weeks old.
We noticed she was lighter yesterday morning, and today we were playing with her and she couldn't really fly.
We noticed her balance was off as we checked her tail feathers.
This is what we saw. We think she might have damaged her (main) tail feather.
This is how she stands when she is on a perch or finger (this is finger)
This is her face, no discharge or anything like that
This is what the tail looks like standing
Please tell me what this might be.
She is feeling/looking a little bit better now. She can't fly well and it impairs her ability to eat & drink because she can't get to the bowl. It is messing up her balance.
Please help me. Thanks!!
