Cockatiel - picking on her foot, why?
(Simi Valley, Ca, USA)
25 year old Cockatiel - recently started picking at her right foot, compulsively. Foot appears slightly reddened, and raw in one area (in the joint of the front toe). Further, the right foot appears weaker than the left - however, it does not seem to affect her mobility to a great extent. She gets irritated when we try to distract her from "pick" at her foot. Also, no changes in diet.
