    One of my conures "toes"

    So my green cheek conure is still young. Last night I noticed something wrong with her left foot. One of the toes won't grab on to anything. It's just there. I'm going to guess she injured herself somehow but idk how. I attached some pictures. Does anyone know what's wrong?
