    One of my birds doesn't seem to want to walk. When she does, she throws her left wing out like she is trying to steady herself. I don't see any evidence of bumblefoot and don't feel any broken bones. Range of motion feels good in both legs without any protest from her.

    What do I do?

    EDIT: She either doesn't want to, or can't walk. She can stand on her legs, but collapses when she tries to walk.
