In late February my A. Avic got a broken leg and I wasn't sure what to do. Well the bleeding stopped (it was very little) and seemed to have no other problems. What happened was I was letting a friend look at her and he lifted the lid off the cage. Lilly is very social and came out to see what was going on and it freaked my friend out who in turn dropped the lid and it caught her leg. Now almost two months later she doesn't use that leg at all, she leaves it sticking up in the air. The leg was pinched in two areas, but has not atrophied at all and she can use it if forced but most of the time chooses not to. Could this be a problem in an upcoming molt? Am I worrying for nothing or is there something I can or should do? Thanks.
