    I had a beautiful little canary called Chips who only had
    half a leg on one side, and a full leg with only 2 toes on
    the other. He got on really well in his cage and I had him
    over a year but recently the stump on his leg turned
    gangrenous and today we had to have him put down. I am
    really devastated as he was such a beautiful bird. My
    cockatiel will miss him too as he was the only other bird
    in the house. I am so sorry to have lost him. The vet said
    the gangrene would have killed him slowly and painfully if
    we didn't have him put to sleep. The vet put him in a
    little box full of anaesthetic gas until he was asleep and
    then she gave him an overdose injection of anaesthetic so
    it was very quick and painless. I will really miss him.
