    i bought 5 calls yesterday
    2 males 3 females
    well one of the females has a hard time walking
    i didnt know she had this problem when i got her last night
    noticed it this morning
    she can walk but only on flat surfaces
    she cant run
    i didnt clip her wings bc if she gets left behind she flys to them to keep up
    works nicely
    im posting a video so maybe someone could help me
    thanks

    She is beautiful!!! The only CLEAR choice is to cull her from your herd and send her to me ASAP [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Seriously, I think she will be OK. Give her time, especially if the owner before had them in a small cage. I had one that had some weakness too, she just needed time to get strong again. Mine did not walk like yours did, but couldn't stand as long as the others and seemed a little off balance. She looks healthy otherwise in your pics. Good luck!

    im glad i didnt clip her wings otherwise she'd be in trouble
    shes such a good flyer
    if she falls behind as u can see in the video she flys to catch up with them
    she can fly way further than what she did in the video
