My last fledgling has a leg that is growing straight sideways. His foot sticks out behind and right of his head. He’s 27 days old. Parents still feeding, but I don’t think he’ll fledge, let alone survive if he manages to get fledged. Any advice?
I've seen many birds survive with one leg. Leave it alone. Let nature take its course. Survival of the fittest. Not everything is perfect.
Thank you, I agree; but I don’t think he can fit through the opening with that leg. Should I prop the large door open and hope he doesn’t fall?
