Urgent Injured foot?

Rain is a 3-4 year old conure.
I just realized that he is not putting pressure on his foot and when I looked closer there was dark reddish spots all over his foot.

Like I said, he is not wanting to put any pressure on it and it holding up. He seems to be also struggling to climb with it.

He was fine yesterday. I don’t know if he somehow injured it today while I was gone or if it’s something more serious.

I will be watching him, and if It doesn’t get better within 1-2 days I will find a vet that can take a look.

I just wanted to get some opinions on what it could possibly be.

He is eating normal and being his normal funny self.

Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

I’m not sure what the reddish spots mean but any time a bird cannot put weight on a foot there is a serious problem. Go to the vet as soon as possible. It could be his foot or his leg or both. Without expert care it could become a lot more serious than you would ever believe. Don’t wait. :(

Until you get to the vet, you can padded out his perches with vet wrap or double fleece wrapped tightly to the perch. It will ease some of the pressure on his foot.

I just recently got home from work and noticed a few dark rusty colored dropping in his cage- which is obviously not normal.

I’m really worried about him.
Like I said it just started today :/.

He’s still climbing around, being his normal self. Eating and drinking like normal. Just not putting much pressure on his one foot/ is holding it up close to him, and has dark colored feces.


We will definitely be heading to the vet ASAP tomorrow.
I just hope he’s ok tonight :(
I will do the padding of his perches and make sure he’s comfortable until we get him looked at tomorrow.

Hoping for the best. He’s one of my best buds.

Unfortunately that’s the bad part. Our lil buddies are pretty good at hiding pain/illness so we don’t know anything until it’s severe or there are obvious symptoms. I def hope he makes it to the vet okay and it’s not something that can’t be fixed. Best wishes & luck to y’all! :goodluck::goodluck:

Very worrisome that the droppings are changing too. I hope for the best. Good luck at the vet!
