I have a thesis for Max.
Post-surgery care and rehabilitation of the companion parrot after amputation of one leg mid-femur.
What I can find on the Internet, and the vet student can find on the vet-med database, is to keep the perches low and in good reach of food and water. And that's about it.
There is some mention of horizontal bars on cages for a beak-oriented bird like Lucy. And that IS it.
Adrienne researched for me. She went all over. Basically, "Give 'em a place to perch and feed'em and they'll be fine," was what she found.
Parrots are a big industry, and I'd like more information. Maybe Max and I can make it our thesis.
MORE: Shhhhhhh. Lucy is perched and tucked.
