The wound is infected and must be diagnosed as to what kind of infection and then treated only by an Avian Vet in your driving area.

Do take bird in quickly as she could lose her leg over this. Infection will eat the leg up and it will have to be amputated without treatment.Bird can also die.

Let us know what Avian Vet has to say and what they do for your sick bird.
