STOP WHATEVER YOU’RE DOING AND WATCH THIS NOW!
Having SO many flashbacks to a budgie I raised in our aviary when I was a teen. She had an enthusiastic mama and got a bit squashed after hatching and fledged with not only splayed legs, but severe scissor-bill and a crooked back.
But she hung in there and lived her whole life on the feeding platform, scooting along on her belly. We made a little hutch for her to crawl into to roost. The other budgies didn’t mind her a bit and apart from her wonky body was healthy and bright-eyes and chirped away with the rest of the gang.
Because of her physical deformities and my bad leg, we named her after me.
