Hey everyone I found a parrot today and have brought it home to hopefully rehabilitate it or keep it as a pet as the shelter was just going to put it down so I have a couple questions
1. Since finding it the parrot has been asleep all day is this usual or is it just tired
2. It doesn't seem to be walking properly (not using its feet properly walking on its ancles) is this something you've seen before
3. It hasn't eaten anything yet I've got some grated fruit in there at the moment untill I can get some parrot feed does anyone know any trick to get it to eat
Thanks so much for any help

Hello and Welcome to Talk Parrots.

I have a couple of questions for you about this parrot you found. Do you know what type it is? If its sleeping a lot then it might be ill, did the shelter say what was wrong with its feet? Can the feet wrap around a perch to sit properly? Some parrots eat a lot of seeds and some eat fruits and nectar as well as some parrots who generally eat a lot of fresh veggies.

It would help if we new what type of bird you have. A photo can help.
