Strolling the yard

Please don't rub tartaric powder it is an acid that can be corrosive and it probably will react since it would be diluted with olive oil. My mistake I meant tumiric powder.
So how is Adelie? Is the therapy working?
I think the cushion is a great idea it will mean less pressure on the toe when she walks but she will need to get used to it and it will take time. What I realy am curous about is how did it happen in the first place . Genetics, due to something in the nesting material, or is weakness due to vitamin deficiencies. The last one is very unlikely as she is so nice,fat and healthy. If we can find out we can prevent it. I doubt it's splay legs but here is some info anyways.I´m not sure.
When I have her, I can stretch her foot out and open it completely. The problem is she does not keep it open. I really don´t know how this will pan out.
She is getting a little red on the edge of her foot - the bit she is walking on incorrectly. The vet is keeping an eye on her and we will be back there a week tomorrow, I think he will put some sort of cushion on her. I´m a little unsure of his plans as we speak in my second language and the words translated come back a little odd. My vet doesn´t speak English.
The problem is the little bend: http://forums.avianavenue.com/index.php?attachments/img_20190128_164816-jpg.295254/
The vet seems hopefull that the little back toe will be fine, but he is not sure about the longer back toe (the one with the bend)
Also, I recently posted Pictures - EEeeep! It´s starting! | Avian Avenue Parrot Forum because she started moulting... so you know what that means.. extra wriggling and frustration making doing the stretching much more difficult
I´m not sure how this will affect our relationship but I´m willing to sacrifice our tight bond if it means I can get her foot better.
It would be a small price to pay.
Sorry, just now seeing this!
