This page is all about malformation disabilities and deformities in gamebird (pretty much any bird) and how, if possible, to cure them.
The list is in alphabetical order...
crooked neck and leg
Stuck in egg
A type of sprain for the leg
Time and patience
Possibly a neck brace
Incubator problems (humidity)
check pecking at something hard when young
No cure but you can trim the beaks so they may eat and live Normally
May need help keep being rid of bugs/parasites/lice
They may need help eating as well...
@Chickenchick11 My grandma once had 2 parakeets, a male and a female. Their names were Doug and Sharon. They hatched out 2 babys, also a male and a female. ( My sister and me got to name them.) We named them Heart and George. George had a crossed beak. I remember George was never very tame and we used to have a heck if a time trying to trim his beak. He would try to bite us.( He never bit us good because of his beak.) We had to trim his beak every 4-6 weeks. But he lived a good life. He died last year at a healthy old parakeet age of 8. Just goes to show (like you said) that even if your bird has some disabilities you can sometimes make sure they live out their lives with a little bit of help from humans.
Problems in the incubator
Vitamin deficiency and parents
tape/Band-Aids/cardboard boot on for 48 hours
Injury when young
Trimming (not Permanent)
May have eating problems
Being stepped on by others when check/young
Foam neck brace
Vitamins and more time
Separation from others
Separation for a few weeks/forever
Prevention from falling over
PLEASE DO NOT CULL YOUR POULTRY UNLESS THEY/IT CAN NOT EAT, DRINK, WALK, if you just don't have time for "special needs" put up a post and someone may step up and care for your needy pet!!!!!
