    I have Khaki Campbell or Khaki Campbell X who keeps trying to fly and keeps injuring himself. Sunday, he hurt his leg and today he cut up his feet by landing very badly in crushed shells. Sunday, I kept him as still as I could until he could walk without a limp and today I put Neosporin on the feet (no lidocaine). Today's flight was up 3 feet up in the air and about 25 feet long. It's not really so much flight injuries as landing injuries. Is there anything that can be done about this? Will he learn to land better with age? He is only 10 weeks old. He tries to fly at least twice a day.
