    She can't even fly as high as my knee... She had pneamonia about two weeks ago. She was gasping for breath about two weeks ago so I had her inside and kept her warm and her breathing is normal now. She's put with the other birds now.. She can walk and run she eats and drinks, she just can't fly. She only hops... She's not too stable on her feet yet but she runs around with the big birds alright. She's quite tired but its cold and get body is working hard... It's to be expected. What's wrong does she have a disease or something.., I don't want to hear that I should cull her because she isn't in pain!

    Maybe she's just not quite back to 100% yet. Is there a reason for her to fly? I mean, does it really matter?
