How A Disabled Budgie Preens

Recommended Posts

I admit I was a little concerned with this guy's growing frustration at being unable to stand on his injured leg to clean himself properly. He was looking a bit uneven for a while. He's since learned to do this:

I think it is super cute so took some pics :-) He rolls onto his back to do his belly and legs or hangs by his good foot to reach places he can't without standing on his bad leg (which he can't yet, at least at this point).

 

Hopefully the leg will continue to improve but in the meantime he's coping :-)

I still have my one legged budgie Pegleg Pete http://forums.budgiebreeders.asn.au/index.php?showtopic=22658&view=findpost&p=267683&hl=%2Bpegleg+%2Bpete&fromsearch=1

 

he flies, he perches and he climbs ladders all with one leg.

Oh, he certainly is a doer, unshun. So good to see he is soooo determined to look beautiful, the small matter of a gammy leg is NOT going to stop him.

What a brave and beautiful little bird!!!

 

Hezz

Clearly he's not disabled. Just 'differently abled'.

 

When do you give him a name? Too soon?

Sorry guys I forgot my login! Well no one has claimed him yet :-( The swelling in the leg continues to go down and he's got a bit of use back in it.

 

It looks like he's here to stay. If anyone would like to use him in their breeding program they are welcome to, so long as it is a good home but he can stay here as long as he wants :-)
