    I have several toeless or foot/feet less birds..

    I just ignore them and the feet/toes either get better or they fall off..

    I do not expect others to do what I do..I point it out simply to show it is not always life ending...most the time it is just toe ending...

    This is Hobbles..(guess how he got the name) 34E4B043-C3E6-4116-BB2F-ECB39862FD26.jpeg 46D8CA23-39C3-432F-AF20-A5AD5F5620F6.jpeg he has two stubs and gets around just fine.. he even roosts with the girls at night.
