    After that being said, the band may be too tight or hurting his
    foot! HAVE IT TAKEN OFF EMMEDIATLY! And better yet, go to the
    Avian vets ASAP unless you want a conure with only one leg which
    will happen if no circulation is in his none usable foot (which
    may be a reason for why he is limping)
