    i have a about 4 week old frizzy that needs help! it started when she was little and her inner toe on one foot was always right beside her middle one, so i put a little boot on her and fix it . then the other day it look like she was having a hard time moving around, then the next morning i picked her up and all her toes one both feet weere all scrunched to gether. she could not balence,she could barely waddle around , and was useing her wings as cruches . so i made her a little sling that her feet could hang down through, put a boot on both feet , and i take her in and out of that every once and a while . when i took the boots off her feat went right back to being all together. she has no problem eating or drinking though. if you have a idea, hint ,or clue of what i should do please help! thanks, kelsea

    Sorry c.o.m.m. It sounds neurological to me. Some kind of birth defect. The only thing that I can conceive is a brace. You would have to fashion it or find someone to help you. It would fasten to legs and strap to tee holding them it place, be easy to clean. I would cull if a splint didn't work. If a bird can't move she can't defend herself and may be pecked to death. Best wishes.
