Is it the wing tip or the entire wing? If it is just the first
section of the wing the baby will look normal except when it
spreads its wing. I have bought a baby like this before. The
parents bit the tip off when the breeder was attempting to get
the baby from the nest. I was not given a discount but the
baby was weaned and sold at a discounted price. If it is the
entire wing its going to be very noticeable all the time so a
large discount should be given.
