Sounds like infection make sure you get that looked at.

Editor's note: I removed the suggestions to put over the counter meds on it, because our avian vet says to NEVER put these items on your bird.

Rotten nail on bird
by: Tracie

The concern will be if the nail is infected. I would take the bird to an avian vet to make sure there is no infection. Nobody can tell over the Internet if your bird's nail is infected, it would take an in person visit.
