One legged jenday concure

Ive had my parrot (mr bob jolly) 3 years now, we bought him off someone off the internet. He seems happy enuff he has a lary cage, eats all day, sings well makes little noises lol, hes free to come and go from his cage n has a play area. My question is he had 2 owners b4 us and im nt sure he was treated the best,id say hes about4 and a half now, but he only has 1 leg. I dont know what happened to him, he seems fine but its just a stump, is there anything special or any advice you could give me. I just want him to have the best life possiable. He seems happy n goes to bed wen i tell him. I would say hes trained as hes very weary and doesnt give kisses or anything like that many thanks toni


Hi Toni,

It sounds like everything is going well for him. He will do best of you do not have his wings clipped since he is missing one leg. As he gets older, he might end up with arthritis or something depending on what happened to his leg. But for now, just keep up the great care!

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
