I have a quail and for the past couple of months my pet quail has developed nasty swelling in his feet
One foot went down over time but the other is swollen around the ankle joint and has turned a purple colour...he can still move around but limps as you would expect
He eats and drinks fine and seems otherwise well
I originally thought he had bumblefoot but I thought that would have killed him by now ?
I have considered a trip to the vet but wonder if it is worth it
Any ideas on what it could be and how to treat it ?
