    Hi, I was cleaning my birds cages and my bird hurt herself, and now her leg is bent back and she’s hopping on one foot. She also appears stunned and is breathing heavily. There is no blood or anything, it’s just her leg is bent behind her. What should I do? Is there any course of action I can take?
