I think this can be corrected. A couple of years ago I was
feeding a 12 day old Amazon when I realized the toes were
pointing one way on one of its feet. I carried it to an
avian vet and she used white gauze tape. She placed the foot
with the toes in a normal position on the tape and then
folded the tape around the foot to form a flat bottomed boot
that extended a little longer in front and back of the foot
so the foot had to be flat at all times. I left it on for
approximately a week and when it was removed the foot was
normal. It may take a little longer on your baby because it
is older and you may have to change the tape if it gets
dirty. Its worth a try, just be careful removing the tape as
those toes are so tiny on a lovebird.
