    If she is already full grown, then I would imagine she has adapted to her disabilities. She may look sad to you, but she probably doesn't know the difference. Keep giving her all the love you can and enjoy her!

    Does she do spins when she walks or only while flying? I guess my question is does the bird walk in circles when it tries to go somewhere or can it walk in a straight line?

    Ok thats a good thing lol. I've seen birds who consumed moldy or wet food develop a condition where they get the "spins" and they do complete circles wherever they go, and that was my concern. Sounds like you just have a special bird. My rule of thumb for the short bus guys is if they can eat, drink, and get around let nature run its course, good luck to him.

    I have one in my batch of 70 that looks about the same. Neck is kind of crooked, and sometimes takes a windy route from Point A to Point B. Eats and drinks fine. Come butcher day, will be going in the freezer, but fends for him/herself among the group and doesn't seem distressed, so no real reason to intervene. He/she is one of the biggest in that group, so must not be a huge hindrance.
