This bird is not yet fully mature, though she doesn't lack much. She has free range of one area of the backyard and normally sleeps in a covered box about waist high. Yesterday was rainy and cool and I noticed that when I went to check on her, she'd not left her box, which is the first time I've seen that. Anyway, I put her on the ground and tossed a bit of her favorite, cooked rice, for her to have something tasty to start her day. She pecked at it repeatedly, but her beak never reached the rice. She then walked over to an area that had some ant activity, and same result.....pecking but not ever actually striking the ground. I later spoon-fed some soft bread and she managed to swallow some of that. She's walking around grazing, pecking at plants etc, but usually not making contact. I've never seen such a thing. Any ideas? My wife thought maybe something had happened to her eyesight. I'm wondering about some vitamin deficiency.
