Examine the foot and toe closely. Sometimes a thread, etc. gets wrapped around and cuts off circulation.

If you have any epsom salts...try bathing her foot in a solution of warm water with epsom salts..she may have fallen from a perch and bruised her foot...bathe for 15 minutes...it may be an idea to isolate her in a cage to give her some rest for a day or two...see if she shows any sign of improvement....look for any signs of discolouration...i.e. green which may indicate bruising...

 

Keep us informed please...

Can you post a picture of the toe? It may possibly be bumblefoot, a staphylococcal infection that usually is found on the coot pad, but also can be on a toe. There is usually a dark spot on the bump. Suzie has given good instructions on the epsom salts soak to the foot. It may well be a bruise instead of bumblefoot.

I tried to upload picture but phone is too slow hmm.png it's also hur foot pad I'm thinking it's an infection of some kind but there is no scab, is it possible without a scab or even a mark? Will it hurt to try antibiotics? Thx to everyone for replying!
