Hi Sweetie!
Picabo here to cheer you up a bit! I hope you are feeling better today. You will probably have some good days and some days not so good. You always have my feathered shoulder to lean on though if you need it!
I would think maybe a modified ferret cage woukd be a good disability cage for you since it has ramps and you could use your leg and beak to get around easier. I don't know if there are any disability cages per se but i have read about people that modify the cages for their birds with disabilities. Mom got a cage patio for Lima, the lovebird with no beak and only one leg. She wove flannel material into it so Lima can hobble on it without having to grasp the wire perches. It took mom some time to figure this out since she noticed Lima didn't use it and mom thought it would make it easier for her to get in and out of the cage. Fonally mom ealized she couldn't use it with the grid so that is when she wove the material and immediately, Lima got the idea and she loves to sit on it when all the lovebirds are out flying around. Mom opens her cage and puts it on the inside of the door so Lima can hop from the rope perch easily over to the porch and sit. When she flies and needs to get inside her cage, it is easier for her to land there instead of on the wire on top of her cage door. All her perches are those rope boody ones, i think they are called, and they all interconnect so Lima can hop or hobble to all the parts of her cage. And she has a ladder she uses from the bottom of the cage up to the first boody rope perch. Her food is on the bottom of the cage but her water is still in a cup and she sits on the rope to drink and bathe. She also has a spacious happy hut to lay down in and rest so she's not on her single leg all day. I would think a ferret cage woud be pretty cool for an amazon though- room to roam and you can hop and hobble up and down the ramps and if they are covered in flannel or felt, it woukd be greyt. Then you could have a hut up by the roof to rest and sleep in and look out at the world from too. Scion has a corner shelf in his cage and mom covered and stuffed it so it is soft for his arthritis feet and she made like padded walls on two side of it for him to snuggle in to. He doesn't like huts or covers. It took him a long time to try it but you know how those pionus' are, don't like change. He also only has rope perches and mom keeps a fluffy towel in the bottom of his cage under the paper for when he loses his balance and falls or has a seizure. A towel might be good in the bottom of your cage too. Well, i have blathered on as a cockatoo likes to do. I hope some of these ideas help you out. I wish i could bring you to live here with me. We'd have such fun but it is crazy the permits to bring birds here, we barely made it with our tailfeathers in tact! Hehehe!
I hope you are feeling better. Try eating some craisins! And watermelon. They always make me feel perky! Big hugs!
Love, Picabo
