    Budgie Foot Problem

    Hi all
    New here, wondering if I could get some advice for my baby boy Ollie (short for broccoli)

    He is about 3YO. Green and yellow budgie.
    Seeming both happy and healthy until now; but in the last few days he is having trouble with his right foot. He is having trouble perching and putting weight in it.
    It appears to be curling slightly at the talons.

    I have taken him to 2 separate vets. The first simply cut his nails, the second told me there is nothing wrong with him.


    Gets plenty of exercise, spending most days out of his “room” (cage). This is cleaned at least once a day. I’m a bit of a bird rookie so I do admit he doesn't have the best diet. Eats a bit of greens, ect but is pretty seed heavy diet wise.

    Not really sure how to add photos in here yet. Will do when i figure it out ����
    Edit- cannot add photos as admin hasn’t given me access. Sorry!

    Appreciate any help
