Angel Wings-Wings flipping

Hi. Has anybody heard of a conspires wings flipping up. This happened over approx a three week period. He was flying like a mad man and now he can’t lift off the ground. On one side his wings are flipping up.

Pictures may help.... maybe the feathers are damaged?

Re: Angel Wings-Wings flipping

A picture, or better yet, a video of your bird might be enormously helpful. It almost sounds like he may have sprained or somehow injured his wing, hence he is holding it up or out. You may need to seek assistance from a trained avian health professional. Here is a link you can use to locate one near you, if you don't already have one -

Thanks for seeking assistance for your bird, I hope you are able to resolve this for him.
