Hello. nearly a month ago a pair of my birds hatched some squabs. one of them was injured - I think stepped on - because I noticed a week after they hatched, one of them had a small red scab on his leg. I didn't take notice because he was healthy and perfectly fine. anyways, it affected his growth, his other sibling is about twice the size he is now and about two weeks ago we brought him in to care for him in hopes to keep him alive.

he's doing just fine now, but I noticed that his legs are not set right. At first I thought they were similar to being splayed but after some research I realize that they aren't. he can stand, not very solidly, and can hobble around if he flaps his wings for support. I noticed that his knees kind of bend inwards and that his feet seem a little swollen. I have a few photos that I'll put up.

is there a way I can fix his problem and make his legs good as new?

thanks.

ever since we took him out of the nest we've been giving him seed, which he can eat and drink on his own, along with kaytee exact mixed with organic baby food and pediatric electrolyte water every day.

I will look into finding a decent bird vet... the last one we went to didn't really float my boat :/
