I got a dove from someone yesterday and its right leg slides out from its body, like the foot is not gripping the perch well. (of course the person I got it from made no mention of this until I asked about it and she just said it had always done that) was told it is about 9 months old. Could this be splay/spraddle leg? Is there anything that I can do since it obviously has never been corrected?Seems to get around ok.
ps. I have not attempted to hold them to thoroughly check it since they are still adapting to their new environment.
I took a small video and it is not letting me add it. Says it is wrong file type. Guess I will just send a pic.
