    Anyone know what these are? The one on the talon is on the top, not bottom. Thanks

    Welcome to BYC. The one on the foot could possibly be bumblefoot if you can see a black dot on the bottom of the foot pad. The top usually would be soft and filled with pus. If it is firm or hard then I'd suspect a cyst or tumor. The lesion on the ear looks like a cyst of some sort, or an infected peck wound. Below are pictures of bumblefoot.

    I would be concerned about avian pox. Worth asking the vet to make sure.

    The top pic is bumblefoot as mentioned. Bottom pic may be a fungus. Try putting lotrimin or monostat 7 on the affected area until healed, avoid the eyes.
