That is not the normal way I would expect the bird to sit.
However it is also not the 1st time I have seen a bird sit like this.
The bird should be given spark if you have access to it and otherwise treated as normal, it will come good or not.
Birds like this do not seem to have problems with any other aspect of life, once they come good. It may be put down to a sprain in the nest or soon after if it does not perk up.

Thanks for responding. Pardon me but what is "spark" I should have access to? And what do you mean by "put down to a sprain " ?? My English is not very good
Thanks in advance

Spark is a brand name for a bird perk me up.
A sprain is a minor damage to a limb, that can have lasting effects.

It's a bit hard to explain to you because you are from Egypt so let's put it another way. You should have sports drinks for running and athletes so spark is pretty much the same. Dilute in clean water at 50/50 to give to your birds.
