    What do you feed them? Does she have access to extra calcium? Could she have hit her head on the top of the cage?

    The top of their enclosure is open. She could have flown into the side of the enclosure. I have them on turkey feed right now. I had one get stuck once and she was crippled for a while and then rebounded
