My bird got a bite on his toe and pecked at it til it got infected, he now walks with his foot in like a fist, what do I do? I wash the foot but I don't know what to do and I am afraid he will lose that foot, which means I will be putting him to sleep. He is also impossible to handle. Very wild. Do I continue to wash it and hope the infection goes away and then rub/stretch out his toes everyday til he can walk flat footed again? I am just so lost and googling hasn't helped me. His toe is very swollen and one of the other toes is swollen to? Probably from walking on it bunched up. I can't see a vet right now.
