Bird with black foot
by: Tracie

I am sorry to read this, how scary for you and the bird. Please take your bird to an avian vet asap. Since the bird is bleeding, you should try to find a 24 hr clinic and if that is not possible, then look for an experienced breeder to help you tonight.

Dr. B can not help your bird because the bird needs to be seen in person for a diagnosis and treatment.
