Lame Duck

No, I'm not referring to Theresa Mays Brexit deal, but Limpy my real lame duck. He is 18 months old now and starting to suffer some wear and tear on his one good leg. The effort of hopping around on one leg has taken it's toll, and now developing a callus on the elbow of his deformed left leg. 

Currently on medication to improve his lot, but remains to be seen how long he can comfortably survive. He happily spends a couple of hours a day with me in the house when given his medication,  food and drink, before going back into the aviary to Disco his mate. 

Not the same as a dog, but he loves getting his neck and face scratched since he cant do it himself !
