I think my budgie has a broken foot, we have cut the nails to see if it would help, but sadly the nerves are very long and we can’t cut much, we are not really sure of what to do other than go to the vet, any recommendations? He is his usual self its just his foot so not sure if hes being affected by pain.

Hello Hannah :)

Yes. That is a good place to start.
They will likely show you some exercises to stretch out the feet and see if it can be corrected or improved.

How old is your bird? When did you get them?

He is three, we got him in 2019 and this is the first sign of a problem since getting him

I see. Definitely need to see a vet to get him assessed. It could be many things, some sort of paralysis, or a nutrition deficiency, or an accident etc. I have a bird who has a closed foot like this but she was born that way so it is not the same.

Hopefully they can get to the bottom of it.
