bumble foot gangreen?
(brooklyn ny US)
i have a baby cockatiel that was always a little clumsy and would fall out of the breeding box i had placed for its parents, so one day i woke up and saw that the baby only weeks old (im guessing because it was still a fluffy yellow) was hanging from the box, its leg was caught on a thread from the cloth that was put in the box so i cut the thread but now when i am removing it from its parents and the box i noticed that a thread has been embedded into its leg giving it a case if SEVER "bumble foot" im guessing that the thread got caught on its foot and couldnt be removed, so now the foot is very swollen and its foot is very dark in color. the baby bird doesnt apply any pressure onto it so he/she relies on leaning onto other things, is there any treatment for this that wont be too costly because vet bills are on the pricey side. And should i remove the sibling bird from the same cage. this is the second set of cockateil babies i have and have never seen such a situation...please help.
