my cockatiel is limping,

i just clipped one of my male cockatiel's toenails and now he isn't using that foot. He is limping while trying to move around the cage. Is the foot broken? Or just sore. Help! I don't know what to do.

There is no way Dr. B can tell you what is wrong over the Internet. Please take your bird to an avian vet if you feel your bird is injured.

In all likelyhood, tomorrow the bird will be walking on the foot like normal. Dr. B suggests that you only allow an avian vet to trim nails because you could hit a vein and the bird could bleed to death quickly.
