​Post a pic of the ground in their pen. Sometimes if they fly down from a perch and land on a stone they can bruise the bottom of the foot, sometimes this will heal on it's own and sometimes it will turn into Bumblefoot and require medical attention. Loose stones on solid ground would make me think this may be the problem.
