His foot is purple and it's not gripped.I've read that sometimes that usally cancer, or leads to death. What do I do!!!

Your bird has probably broken his foot from getting it trapped under the bowl. Please take him to an Avian Vet immediately so foot can be xrayed to see how badly it is broken.

Broken bones make feet turn purple and swell up. He should have already been taken to an Avian Vet because bones have to be set immediately or your bird will be crippled for life. Do not delay any longer in getting him the medical services he needs as he is in a great deal of pain and needs help.

Find an Avian Vet
