    Hi,
    Could my linnie cause this to himself? He keeps tucking it. My other linnie doesn't have any problems. Both also got an anti-parasite drip every month and have anti-bloodlice strips in their cage.

    Somethings irritating your bird in that area. Best to have vet take a look before going and putting anything on it yourself. Putting anything on it might cause more irratation.

    I agree. You don't want to fool around with sores on the foot.

    It definitely looks like something I would want a vet to investigate. Sometimes they can hurt themselves on sharp points on a cage, cut zip ties, from falling, etc and then they sometimes keep picking at it because of the pain or other irritation.

    I agree with the others, a vet check is called for. I am not who usually says vet for every single little thing, but there some conditions in which won't go away or the bird is really bothered by and that injury is one of them. That being said, I hope your linnie is ok and it is nothing serious.
