Cocktiel leg hurt

My female cocktiel fall with her cage from the top of the kitchen counter she can’t hold the proper clutch she is just 7months old. Presently I can’t take her to the vet. My parents are angry of me having there any home remedies.


Hi Abraham,

I’m sorry to hear about your little bird. If she can’t use her leg or foot, you will need to take her to an Avian Vet. I’m sure your parents will understand and want to do what is best for the bird. Maybe your parents didn’t think you were ready to care for a pet. You can show them you are being responsible by wanting to seek Vet care so she doesn’t suffer or end up with a deformed leg or foot.

Take care,
