My cockatiel has one foot that has turned red. Does anyone know what this is? it doesn't seem to bother him.

Do you have a Avian Vet near you?
I would not like to guess what this could be. But feel you should contact a vet ASAP.
He/she may of sprained it, and I hope that is all it is.


A tribute to my lost ones. RIP.

Can you post a picture?

Is the bird putting weight on it? Is it swollen? Does it appear to be misshapen/broken? If you touch it does it act like it's hurting?

He seems fine. He doesn't seem to be in pain. I will probably get it checked out anyways just to be sure everything is ok. Thanks!

Yeah go get it checked out just to be sure, do you have any other birds? If he's been nipped that could do some damage for sure
