The price is unreasonable for a handicapped bird as such.
As a breeder I cannot believe or fathom how such
an "accident" could ever occur. It's shameful for happening
and it's even more shameful for a breeder to not seek
professional medical treatment when it happened.
It's not as if a toe nail was lost, we're talking a wing.
I don't believe that is how it happened.
