    Mr Abbott got in fight yesterday ,went to bed ,but I noticed he was leaned over forward ,with his head close to the ground . The next morning I opened his door ,he normally comes out running ,but I had to pick him up and carry him out. Now this morning he won't eat or drink and he just stands there with his head close to the ground,leaned over like he can't hold his head up.he did crow a few times but not the normal crow.if I get close enough to touch him he will move away like he can move some. Please help don't know how much pain he is in. The fight was 16 hours ago . I was able to git him to drink if I hold the water to his beak. He also ate a little .

    He is still leaning forward and we are still hand feeding and still putting water to his beak. He seems to be drinking. Brought him outside. Flapped his wings. He is inside in a dog kennel, in our house. Still Leans forward. Crows but sounds funny. Hope all will be well for this little guy.
