Hi, this is my cute budgie whose feet and nails look like this , what could be the reason and solution for it?I had an online consultation and the vet didn’t even look once at my bird but just listened to me and suggest some vitamins which is for dogs and said if this doesn’t help nothing will. So please if any of you who have experienced this, pls help. This budgie is not tamed.

Hmm, it’s too bad the vet was not helpful. I would guess that the nail was damaged at some point and that caused this problem. I have two untamed budgies as well so I know it’s not easy to catch them, but the nail will probably need to be trimmed occasionally as it’s unlikely it will wear down naturally in that position and could eventually poke the bird. Other than that, I doubt it will cause any problems.
