    While bathing one of my birds I noticed a couple of dark spots on her toes. Any clues what could be wrong. She is otherwise very healthy.[​IMG]

    To me it looks like she has stepped in something that has temporarily colored her toes, but keep a check on it. I have seen areas of necrosis look like that after people have put vet wrap on that has become too tight.

    I noticed it while bathing her & had taken a toothbrush to her feet, so it doesnt come off. It didnt appear to be sore. I didn find a case of bumblefoot in 2 other birds (grrr). could it be similar?
    Its only on those 2 toes though..
