Cockatiel pulling at his toes and squeeking
by Kelly Anderson
Hi, my cockatiel is pulling at his long middle toe and squeeking as if this hurts him. he is a rescue bird found outside but I have had him for over a year now. He was found being bullied by magpies and I nursed him back to health, I suspect he was an avairy bird that escaped as he will only eat his seed and no fresh foods I give him. As a result I have no idea how old he is or his past history.
Should I be concerned about this toe pulling ? he doesnt do it all the time just occasionally but its as if its giving him some kind of discomfort.
