Help - New baby Indian Ringneck

Post by Naz79 » Sun Dec 03, 2017 10:29 pm

Hi everyone, my name is Naz and I am new to this forum. I got a 8 week baby ringneck on Saturday. I noticed a bit of swelling on its left foot when I got it home, but didn't think anything of it. Today I noticed that the bird seems to be struggling with that leg...seems that it is not putting its weight on that leg at all. I have attached some photos (notice the swelling and awkward positioning of the leg). A friend suggested bumble foot...infection from the ring. But i have confirmed with the breeder, this bird had no ring.Would appreciate any input, solutions or thoughts in regards to this issue. I am hoping it is nothing serious!! :(
