    My birds leg has gotten hurt, what should I do?

    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?

    Help figuring out quail diagnosis

    My 2.5 year old female coturnix quail has started lying on her side all the time. She can’t seem to put weight on her right leg. She’s able to move both legs, but she can’t walk. Vet says it’s probably either a nerve issue, abdominal mass on left side, stroke, sprain or soft tissue injury, but I...
